I have not tried this recipe yet. My sister emailed me today with a file of supposedly restaurant recipes and this was among them. Hope it is what you are looking for.

Wendy's Chili

1 pound ground chuck

1 15-ounce can of diced tomatoes (liquid included)

1 15-ounce can of red kidney beans (liquid drained)

1 15-ounce can of pinto beans (liquid drained)

1 8-ounce can Hunt's tomato sauce

1/2 medium white onion, diced

1 4-ounce diced green chilies (with liquid)

2 Tablespoons chopped celery

2 Tablespoons chili powder

1/2 Tablespoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup water

1. Brown the ground chuck over medium heat, breaking into small pieces with the spatula. Add a dash of salt and pepper while cooking.

2. Empty the cooked meat into a spaghetti strainer, and rinse well under very hot water. This removes the bulk of the fat.

3. Transfer the beef into a ducth oven, and add the remaining ingredients. Stir together to combine thoroughly.

4. Over mdeium heat, bring to a simmer. Reduce the burner to low, and continue simmering 50-60 minutes stirring occasionally.

It was my understanding it is stagg country chili. I purchased a gallon can from a wholesale house and tried it. It was the exact same thing or at least it was just like it.
