You can make this with or with our beans. It can be put in the crock pot, but I prefer it cooked on the stove where I can bring it to simmer and watch it for a while.

How to Make Chili ala Wendy


  • 1Brown your ground beef with the diced onions and green peppers in the pot. I use frozen onions and green peppers and I use anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 of a bag.
  • 2While you are browning the meat, season with salt and pepper and cumin.
  • 3add soup and juice to meat.
  • 4Drain the Kidney beans and add to the mix
  • 5season again with salt, pepper and cumin.
  • 6Add Chili Powder to taste. I use the large containers of McCormicks Chili powder. I usually start with 1/4 of the bottle of chili powder.
  • 7Bring every thing to a simmer and let simmer for at least an hour.
  • 8You can add more Chili Powder as you simmer. I regulate the right amount by what the pot smells like. I usually end up using half the bottle in the end. You and always add more at the table if needed.
  • 9Chili will gain flavor the longer you marrinate the ingredients together.
  • 10We serve in a bowl, or over baked potatoes, over pasta, over Fritos.
