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.
My family didn't like this recipe. We are used to a southwest style chili and this may be the reason for our dislike. The texture of the ground beef is so fine that it didn't taste like to chili to us. Also, some of the spices used didn't seem appropriate.
this is great chili, I made it and also made several copies of the recipe....super great....i left out the cider vinegar just because i am not brave to try it in chili. lol..I also made this chili with venison....mmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmm good. Sue
We have made this several times now and still enjoy it as much as the first time. Cincinnati chili is in no way like other chilis - those looking for something "similar to" a favorite recipe should look elsewhere, because it's like apples and oranges. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Katie :)
I live in Hamilton, OH and eat Goldstar(my favorite) and Skyline all the time. This is more like Empress Chili. If you do not like hot spice things then cut back on the red pepper, other than that this is awesome.
