Everyone needs a quick and easy chili recipe. I guarantee this chili recipe will become your goto chicken chili recipe! This recipe has won the chili cook-off multiple years, and frankly when Cathy gave me the recipe I was flabbergasted at how easy it is. I swore she was leaving something out, she’s not. I made it.
It’s super easy and award winningly scrumptious!
The Chili Cook-Off story that has gotten the most press in our home and well really in our community of friends is the year that Wendy’s Chili nearly won the prize for best all around chili. That year we had nearly 20 chili recipes entered with three categories to win in, Best Overall, Most Original, and Spiciest Chili. I was inside away from the hub-ub tallying up all the votes to see who had won, when my good friend Suzy came in and said “in all good conscientiousness I have to tell you that #2 is mine and if it happens to win, I can’t take the prize.”.
It in fact #2 was winning in the best overall chili category.
Because she confessed, ” it’s Wendy’s chili!!!!”.
[insert my eyes popping out of my head]
[now insert hysterical laughter!!! hyena like laughter! from me]
Oh my goodness! My gal Suze and her family had played a prank on us all, and in the course of their prank they nearly won the whole shah-bang! She was mortified. I thought it was the best ever!! Wish I would have thought of it actually. She also confessed that they had been super busy and she had not had time to make chili so I think she said her son suggested they just do the drive through at Wendy’s get a bunch of chili dump it in slow cooker and show up! Ba ahahaha! Gotta love a smart- _ss kid.
So today to commemorate the best Chili Cook-Off prank ever I’m giving away five $10 Wendy’s gift cards!
Yeh you heard me!! FIVE $10 Wendy gift cards. See details below.
What does any of this have to do with Cathy’s Chili? Nothing. I do have to say that I never dared try Wendy’s Chili before that day, truth be told it made me a little leary…like what could they be hiding in there. But honestly it’s pretty darn good….like Chili Cook-off Winning good!
But not quite as good as Cathy’s Easy Chicken Chili. Cath said that this recipe actually came from another mutual friend of ours Beth, and that Beth needs to get creds for this chili, but we call this Cathy’s Chicken Chili in our house, and I know Beth with understand so I’m sticking to the title of Cathy’s Easy Chicken Chili.
