I don’t know what it is about Wendy’s Chili but I really love it. There was a time when I had a hard time controlling my order at Wendy’s. I would want a burger and fries but couldn’t say no to the chili either. It was always way too much food but I didn’t care. I don’t have that issue anymore but chili is always in my order. Being able to make this at home is such a nice option! A huge thank you to Chef Bob!!
