Wendy's Chili Copycat Slow Cooker Recipe

11:24 PM


One of my favorite things about the weather turning colder is an excuse to make chili, and lots of it. My dad used to make the best chili, and I can never quite make it the same as him, but the chili at Wendy's comes pretty close. However, I can't always get in the car and head to Wendy's, mostly because it is about 40 minutes away from my house. That is why this Wendy's chili copycat recipe is so great, because you can make it at home any time you want!

Ingredients:



2 lb Ground Beef
2 28 oz Diced Tomatoes in Juice
1 16 oz Kidney Beans drained
1 15 oz Pinto Beans drained
2 small Onion diced
1/4 cup Celery diced (2-3 stalks)
1/4 cup Bell Pepper diced
3 tbsp Chili Powder
2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 cup Water


Instructions:

Step 1: Brown the Ground Beef in a pan and drain.

Step 2: Add the water, boil and drain the mixture to eliminate more fat.



Step 3: Place meat and all of the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

  19. I LOVE chili and am definitely going to give this a try. It's been years since I've had Wendy's chili, but being that I usually throw a chili recipe of one sort or another into the crockpot at least once a month, (the winter is such a great time for a nice hearty bowl of chili!), this is definitely on my list !

  28. I feel really stupid for asking this, but do you add the water to the chili, or is that just used to drain the meat in Step 2?

    1. Nope, you add it to the browned meat, then boil and drain the meat again before adding the meat to the chili. :)

  29. I used 1 can diced tomatoes and 1 can tomato sauce, A mix of yellow, red and orange peppers instead of green, 85/15 ground beef and did not boil, minced garlic not powder. Was awesome.
