I found this copycat recipe online—it really does taste remarkably similar to Wendy’s Chili, only it’s a bit heartier than what I usually get when I hit my local drive-thru. Be warned, this recipe makes a ton—it’ll fill a 5 1/2-quart Dutch oven almost to the rim. Add cheese or sour cream if you like, but they’re really not needed here.
Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown ground beef with salt and peper until cooked through, stirring frequently to break up clumps. Stir in celery, onion, and green bell peppers; cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until translucent.
Add stewed tomatoes, Rotel tomatoes, tomato sauce and water. Stir in dried parsley, cumin, and chili seasoning. Add undrained beans and stir to combine. Heat, stirring freqently, until mixture comes to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour. Stir in vinegar just before serving.
Note: See the related blog post for a recipe to make homemade chili seasoning mix.
