Just Like Wendy's(R) Chili
December 06, 2018

First, I love wendy's chili, I made this for an upcoming xmas party. There was waaay too much grease/oil in my chili when finished - it's just kind of a separated mess. I am not sure of the reason for the olive oil to begin with, and then adding ground beef which has fat and there is no instruction to ever drain, so I didn't. I used 80% lean beef. I also didn't understand why we cook the beef in a large patty - I made two batches at once (two different pots) and one of them burnt on the bottom since i didn't check it till 8 min. passed, it was a mistake. I feel like it does slightly taste like Wendy's, but not as much flavor. I froze it and and then scraped all the fat from the top hoping it's salvagable for the day I serve it (I made ahead and froze for the party). If it's somehow great the day we eat it I will update the review. I made exactly as the recipe reads with no alterations.
