So when it comes to chili, I’m just a tad bit picky. One that I LOVE though, believe it or not, is Wendy’s Chili. So my mission was to make a version at home that tasted just like it. This recipe is adapted from Top Secret Recipes.

And who could forget some cornbread to go along with my chili? Check out the World’s Best Honey Cornbread recipe at Money Saving Mom!
