Dave Thomas, Wendy's late founder, started serving this chili in 1969, the year the first Wendy's opened its doors. Over the years the recipe has changed a bit, but this Wendy's copycat chili recipe is a great version of the one served in the early 90s. Try topping it with some chopped onion and Cheddar cheese, just as you can request in the restaurant.

Do exactly what the recipe says and it will be almost indistinguishable from Wendy's. Only thing I did slightly different is I used canned green chili's because the grocery store didn't have fresh ones. Fresh ones would probably only make it better.
