    I really like Wendy's chili, so I looked up a copycat recipe and turns out really really good.

    Was just in a chili cook-off two weeks ago. Five entries and each had beans. No beans, and you may as well just have a bowl of broth.

    Half beef, half venison. Beans are fine, just don't overdo them. Lots of tomato chunks. Bits of jalapeno's. Chili powder.

    Canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Toss them in a food processor and add as much to your chili as you can handle. They're not murderously spicy but they add some kick and a nice smoky quality.
