very yummy. tastes similar to the real thing. Instead of just water, I used mostly beef broth with just some water. I added 2 lbs of ground sirloin too. I also added a small can of tomato sauce along with the tomato paste. I also added 2 tbsp of baking cocoa. Its gotta have cocoa. I added 2 tsp of cinnamon and 2 tsp allspice. also added extra clove and crushed red pepper too.

Of the dozens and dozens of recipes out there for this chili, someone finally got it right! It was as if I was back in Cinci having a meal at skyline. Thank you!

OMG! This was fantastic! We live in Cincinnati and my DH thought it was better than the chili we get at Gold Star or Skyline. Now, we won't get Cincinnati Chili at a take out, we will make it instead. This was an easy recipe and one I will be making very often. Thanks so much!!

I have 2 recipes for Skyline - this one was good, but I think the spices were a little off. HOWEVER, the method is perfect!

Delicious. I love the flavor the Worcestershire sauce, cinnamon, and allspice add.I did make this in the Crockpot and it was still a very thick hearty chili. I did not add spaghetti but may next time. Also, I added 28 oz of crushed tomatoes instead of a small can of tomato paste. Thanks for sharing pattiKay!!

I thought there was a little to much vinegar in this one. I'm not sure how to cut that taste. I would try it again but cut done on it.

I love Cincinnati Chili and this is the only recipe I've tried, but it was delicious!!! The spices are just right. I've made it twice now and enjoyed the leftovers for days. I top with onions and shredded cheese. Definitely try this one.

I've never had Cincinnati chili before but thought this was awesome. Initially you get a hint of the cinnamon and all spice and then the subtle heat sneaks up on you. I let it simmer for about a half hour longer than directed because I like a thicker chili and it was still a bit soupy after the 45 minutes. Thanks for posting!

Amazingly good. I made this with 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef ( that was the package which i defrosted), 1 can red kidney beans, 1 can northern beans ( all i had), dried onion ( ran out of fresh)---I cooked this all for about 2 hours until it was all cooked down and thick--served this with pasta and cheddar and dinner rolls. Awesome and delish recipe. Thanks for the great recipe- a keeper!!
