Chili For Winter
Scroll down for the recipe
Several years ago I watched a tv program and heard a woman say she had replicated the recipe for Wendy's Chili. In fact, she had replicated the recipe for several popular foods: the secret sauce for Big Mac's, the White Castle Hamburger, Reeses Peanut Butter cups, Colonel Sander's Fried Chicken, Arthur Treacher's fish. I quickly found a pen and paper and copied them. You may have them, but if you don't, I'll share. The recipe below is a replication for Wendy's Chili.
2 Tbsp oil
1-1/2 - 2 lbs ground round
10 oz. can Campbell's French Onion Soup (Put through a blender)
While meat is browning, add soup and cook 5 minutes.
