Three Reasons I love Wendy's chili....

While hubster is deployed I treat myself and the kids to one night/week out to dinner....it keeps me from feeding them processed crap by the bucketfuls because it gives me a break from cooking...and as much as I'd like to appear as Martha Stewart...I can tell you that often I'm scrambling for something to eat for dinner that I can make in 20 min because lil' dude is hollering like he's going to starve to death.

So...most of the time dinner out is NOT fast food.  Its a restaurant where we eat well and someone else cleans up after me and my kids.  I love that.  But occasionally lil' dude is screaming like he's going to starve to death even on eat out nights and then we head to Wendys.  We love Wendys.  I love it because I love the chili.  I'd never even had the chili until I lapbanded and then a friend turned me onto it as a "fast food" option that won't bust my gut...The small value size is exactly one cup and its got bean and meat = protein.

180 calories
4 g fiber
13 g protein

Not bad for fast food.

So...tonight was a Wendy's chili night...and my kids wanted a cheeseburger and nuggets respectively and they got these in their kid's meals...I laughed and laughed and laughed.




So...good chili and two good laughs.  Can't beat that for $6 total!

  2. I used to like it then it changed and now I don't like it as much. Unless it's chili chips and cheese. :)

    1. I suppose that since I never ate it before I had no clue they changed the recipe...I like it how it is now though. yum!

  3. I had Wendy's chilli for all three meals yesterday. And Friday was my first time trying it!!! I'm addicted. But I'm going to try making it this week from a copycat recipe!
