Chili Seasoning Ingredients

Wendy’s Copycat Chili Seasoning Mix

If you’re like me, you love “Wendy’s” Chili.  Not only is it perfect for a cold day, but I love the taco salad made with the hot chili on top.

There are a lot of copycat recipes floating around the internet.  But here’s my version.

(I make the seasoning mix and store it in little snack size zipper seal baggies in the pantry.)


3 tablespoons chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2  teaspoons black pepper

1  teaspoons salt

I label the little baggies and when I want to make chili. it’s ready to stir in to the rest of the ingredients.

Here’s what else is in my recipe:

1 1/2  pounds ground beef

1 can diced tomatoes

1 – 8oz. can tomato sauce

1 small can diced green chiles

2 cans kidney beans, drained

2 cans pinto beans, drained

1 medium onion, diced

2-3 ribs diced celery

1/2 c. water

Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain off the fat. Rinse if desired.  Put all ingredients, including the seasoning, Into a slow cooker,  Cook 5-6 hours on low.

Serve with grated cheese and onions, or serve as a taco salad with all the fixins! HERE are the instructions to making a baked taco shell bowl!  They are so fun!
