Wendy's chili cheese fries

The new chili cheese fries at Wendy's are amazing. Try them if you're drunk.

      They would really have to change their "chili" recipe! From a Texas chilihead.

        I don't think anyone seriously considers Wendy's chili to be anything more than fast food chili. With fries and cheese sauce it does the job.

    2. This seems like a natural to me. I like dipping their fries in the chili. It is the same chili they sell individually, right?

      1. The chili seems a bit thin to pour over also thin fries. Does the liquid just flow to the bottom between the fries ?
        I like their chili..just doesn't seem to be the right consistancy to pour over fries..which should be thicker.

          The fries get a little soggy, but you eat it with a fork anyway. I was able to soak up the chili liquid with the fries.

        2. This stuff is an epic fail. I had some last night because I remember Wendy's chili as being decent for fast food and ditto for the fries.

          But together it added up to much worse than the sum of its parts. The chili is too thin and watery to use this way and the fries just get soggy and dead. You can't even eat the chili unless you first remove all the fries and pile them somewhere else.

          This is a waste of semi-decent chili and fries.

              I was thinking the same thing. I do like their chili but it is too watery to go on fries.

                Do you dip your fries in the chili?

            2. last time I had their chilli it was thin and watery and had more tomatoes than meat.
