Wendy’s-Style Crockpot Chili Recipe
Before our family's food conversion, our favorite fast food stop was a side of Wendy's chili with french fries dunked in for good measure. It was hearty and fast -- but far from nourishing. If you want to serve your family a dish that's even more delicious and nutritious -- but just as easy! -- as drive-thru fare, this is the ultimate crockpot chili recipe you are looking for.
In a large crockpot, combine ingredients, stirring well.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours until flavors have melded together.
IN A HURRY? Cook on the stove top for 45 minutes until simmering.
MAKING EXTRA? Freeze in meal-size portions for an instant lunch or one-pot-dinner.
FOR GAPS: use only white navy beans.
BEAN TIP: Cook large batches of beans and freeze in two-cup increments in your freezer. You can't beat the price of these "instant cans"!
