If you are looking for a new chili recipe and one that is well known, then you absolutely have to make my copycat Wendy’s Chili!

In a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef, breaking it up into crumbles, 8-10 minutes. Drain any excess grease.



Add the celery, onion, and bell pepper to the pan, stir it in to mix with the beef, and cook until the veggies have softened, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add the chili seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.


Add the water to the pot and scrape any browned bits off the bottom of the pan.


Add the kidney beans, pinto beans, tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, diced tomatoes with green chiles, and sugar, stir until combined.
