Wendy’s Chili Recipe: My Most Requested Copycat Chili Recipe

Wendy’s Chili Recipe

One of the most popular items with teens is this Wendy’s Chili Recipe. A great dish to make at home for family and friends, and a lot less expensive, too! This is a beefy chili recipe with just the right amount of seasoning, a familiar taste and easy to make.


This recipe is one of the most requested on AboutEating.com. I get requests for this Wendy’s Chili recipe copycat all  of the time and they usually beg me to, “post a Wendy’s Chili Clone”.

Chili warms you up on a cold winter day and is thought of as an American favorite. There are several “types” of chili, from hearty Texas style chili to the thinner style served over spaghetti in Cincinnati.

I don’t recall the source of this chili recipe, but it’s pretty close to Wendys Chili Recipe. I’d add more beans, onions and less tomato juice, but then, there I go again, telling a famous restaurant how to improve their signature dish.

Could this chili recipe be any easier? Let it simmer on the stove, but keep an eye on it so it doesn’t dry out too much. Cook up a batch of chili for your next foot ball game, a casual dinner with friends or when ever you get a taste for the spicy, hearty goodness of Chili.
