Wendy’s Chili

Wendy’s® makes this classic recipe fresh every day, and you can do the
same. Tomato juice really enhances the flavor of this chili, as does the
chili powder, though you may want to start off with a little less chili
powder. I find that ¼ cup isn’t too hot, but is very flavorful.

Yield: 12 servings.

2 pouwendy's chilinds freshly ground beef

4 cups (1 quart) tomato juice

1 (29-ounce) can tomato purée

1 (15-ounce) can red kidney

beans, drained

1 medium onion, chopped

(about 1½ cups)

1/2 cup celery, diced

1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced

1/4 cup chili powder (you may want to use less)

1 teaspoon cumin (if you like real

flavor, add more)

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

In a frying pan, brown the ground beef, then drain off the fat. Put
the beef and the remaining ingredients into a 6-quart pot. Cover the pot
and let the chili simmer for 1 to 1½ hours, stirring every 15 minutes.
