      I just came across this episode on America's Test Kitchen on PBS and tried it out exactly as is. Very nice indeed! Not my usual chili by any stretch of the imagination (cinnamon and allspice take some getting used to) but I was really enjoying this dish served 5-way. It is sweeter and more tomato-y than traditional chili so be forewarned. And it really isn't meant to be eaten by itself. It's meant to be piled on spaghetti. I will be making this again.

      This is over-the-top delicious! The addition of the cinnamon, cider vinegar and brown sugar made it irresistible. I didn't add any oregano and cut the chili powder, cinnamon and allspice in half, since I can't handle spicy foods. It was just perfect for us. Thanks Greg for a true five star keeper!
