Wendy's Chili Copycat
Today is pretty darned cold (for Dallas, TX) and I was thinking Chili! I found this Wendy's Chili Copycat Recipe at Food.com. We really like Wendy's Chili, so I hope this one is similar. From the author of the recipe: "This is a version of the famous Wendy's chili and it tastes just like it! This recipe is from Todd Wilbur's book Top Secret Recipes. www.TopSecretRecipes.com" I will be making this from my food storage and it is a very easy recipe to make from food storage. This will also cut down on the cooking time dramatically.
