Now that I have stumbled across this recipe I don't even bother looking for others and my husband and kids love it. For the sake of the kids I do lessen the chili powder to 2 tbsp and the salt to 1 tsp. Also, I use one can of chili tomatoes in place of fresh tomatoes and green chilies. I drain the liquid and add enough water to make 2 cups. This is what I use in place of 2 cups of straight water. The different beans add just the right texture and flavour.

Substitute tomato juice for water, and add just a small amount of brown sugar and it's spot on! Even my boy who doesn't like chili eats it!

This is the best knock off I have ever made. I make big batches plenty for leftovers. and it freezes great.

I have made this several times and only the 1st time did I add the water. Never did I after that.

This was a pretty good chili, had a bit of a kick to it but I didn't think it tasted like Wendy's chili at all. I stuck to the recipe, and it does make a good chili...just not Wendy's.

I love this recipe and make it over and over. I use lean ground round. I also use small can green chilis, instead of the fresh. I add a bit of cayenne pepper. I serve it over hot white rice and top with shredded cheddar, sour cream and diced green onions w/ a splash of Tabasco. A family favorite for sure :D
