    This recipe is a hit with my family. I double the batch so we would have plenty of leftovers. It taste just like Wendy's. So darn good!

    Super good! I had to sub the tomato components for diced tomatoes and a can of condensed tomato soup but it still tasted almost identical to Wendy’s chili. I will make this again

    Pretty good a little bland for my taste but a few drops of red hot does the trick

    Amazing. So delicious. I only used one pound of beef instead of two and no cayenne because it would be too spicy for my kids. Also, I cooked it in my instant pot so I used half the amount of liquid.

    A bit too spicy. Next time less chili. Ymmily incredient list did not mention the beans need to be from a can. This caused the cooking to be extended for 4 hours.
