Wendys Chili Recipe

Nothing says fall better than a bowl of chili or hot apple cider. In writing this article, I see there are about as many recipes for chili as there is information on housing, whew! For some reason I have always liked Wendys Chili. It is just thick and spicy enough. Since it is familiar, I will share that recipe with you to get fall started off right. 

  • Ground Beef - 2 pounds
  • Tomato Sauce - 1 - 29 oz can
  • Kidney Beans - 1 - 29 oz can
  • Pinto Beans - 1 - 29 oz can
  • Onions - 1 Cup
  • Green Chili - 1/2 Cup
  • Celery - 1/4 Cup
  • Tomato - 3 Medium
  • Cumin - 2 Teaspoons
  • Chili Powder - 3 Tablespoons
  • Black Pepper - 1 - 1/2 Teaspoons
  • Salt - 2 Teaspoons
  • Water - 2 Cups

Brown the ground beef in a skillet and drain off the excess fat.

Crumble the pieces of meat (with a fork) into pea size pieces.

In a large pot, combine the meat and all other ingredients and bring to a simmer on low heat. Cook for 2 - 3 hours on low heat and stir every 15 minutes.

* You can add Cayenne Pepper, Jalapeno Peppers, Sour Cream, Cheese or Fritos

Makes 12 servings

Inflammation Tamer

If you're like me, with the holidays right around the corner you are going to have inflammation from all the holiday food! It only gets worse as we get older. Although inflammation helps our bodies to fight off infection, if we over indulge, it also causes swelling in our fat tissues. Below are a couple of ideas that really do seem to help.

Number 1 - Eat Cucumbers, yes, they really do help with the swelling. They are a diuretic and will help fill you up which also helps to keep you from eating more holiday food.

Number 2 - Take these supplements. Tumeric with Ginger. You can find them on Amazon and many other places on the web. Simple little capsules to help fight off the swelling, tightness and water retention.

Number 3 - WATER, yes water, and tons of it. If you are inflamed, drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water; 200 pounds = 100 ounces of water. Yeah, I know... None of us want to do that because of the constant trips to the bathroom. But if you want to get rid of the tightness and inflammation, you gotta drink that water!
