Chili Craving

I think it's possible that no one will no what I'm talking about, or that those who do will gag, but:

I am craving Skyline chili like you would not believe. Does anyone have a recipe for good Cincinnati chili?!?!?


  1. OK I read that chili CARVING and wondered just exactly how one carved chili. ;)

  2. I understand craving Chili, but don't know about Cincinnati Chili ... hope you share the recipe when you find it.

  3. this is a recipe from a sweet lady in my church - it's EXCELLENT.

    3 T vegetable oil
    1 medium onion, diced
    3 lb ground beef
    1 T garlic, minced
    1/2 t crushed red pepper
    1/2 t cinnamon
    1/4 t allspice
    1/2 t cumin
    1 T chili powder
    2 t black pepper
    2 t salt
    1 c tomato sauce
    5 c tomato juice
    1 T worcestershire sauce
    1/2 t tabasco

    Brown meat in 2 T of oil and drain off fat. Set aside. Saute onion in 1 T oil until soft. Add to beef. Add garlic, red pepper, cinnamon, allspice, cumin, chili powder, pepper, salt, tomato sauce, tomato juice, worcestershire sauce, and tabasco. Simmer 3-4 hours. Let sit overnight and then freeze if desired.

    enjoy :)

  4. Katie's recipe looks good. Otherwise, I don't know anything about Cincinnati chili, but my future daughter-in-law is from there, so I'll ask her!

  8. I've never had this kind of chili. I can make you some Texas chili that'll make you smile though!

    Thanks for your comment at my place. I am FURIOUS FURIOUS. And agree totally with your comment. Drives me insane.


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
