Almost Authentic Cincinnati Chili

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by Katie Kleinhaus

9 @ from Cincinnati and suffers pangs of withdrawal. His favorite is Skyline (personally when I've visited I preferred Goldstar, but that's heresy so don't tell Nick). I've played around with the recipe--it's still not quite perfected, but this is a version we enjoy. The best thing is that it is open to interpretation. Best served over pasta and topped with shredded cheese.

Wonderful, everyone in my house liked it. It is not like the chili i usualy make, but the cinnamon does make it taste good. This is a great recipe.
