Some say, you can taste cinnamon or chocolate in it. I’ve never tasted that but I am not a chili aficionado. It originated from Greece. I guess you could call it Greek Chili but probably no one would understand or acknowledge that they know what you are talking about, especially if they are from Cincinnati. Some people are pretty territorial about certain names.
When we were at my hubby’s parent’s home in the fall, we stopped at a Krogers and bought a year’s worth of the little blue packets so I could make some when I got home. We make it every other week. I have tried other packets but the blue ones are my favorite. Something, else interesting is you don’t brown the meat before you mix the mix. It is all together and simmers for an hour. I LOVE EASY recipes.
There are certain ways to order chili – kind of like Starbucks.
You have the options of:
1 way – which is just a bowl of chili
2 way – spaghetti topped with chili only
3 way – spaghetti, chili and cheese (never melted)
4 way – spaghetti, chili, cheese, and either red beans or white chopped onions
5 way – spaghetti, chili, cheese, red beans and white chopped onions

I love Cincinnati Chili! I have an easy crockpot recipe:
This is the closest recipe to real Skyline that I have found.
Stopping in from the blog party! I had to come check out this post on my favorite, Cincy chili. There is simply nothing like it. The blue packet (I think it is called Cincinnati Recipe) is very good, a great alternative to Skyline and much cheaper. Thanks for visiting! 🙂

gag. 🙂 i had a professor from cincinatti and she told me about the chili and it sounded disgusting then and still sounds disguting. 🙂 i like more of a cajun spicey chili and i want it on fritos… this texan has to draw the line. 😉
