This was delicious! Can you believe that my hubby grew up in Ohio and has never tried Cincinnati chili before? He sure was missing out all those years. The cocoa and cinnamon are what make this chili special, but there is also a good amount of heat to balance out the sweetness without overpowering it. The only change I made to the recipe was to use 1/2 the amount of onions, and that was perfect for me. We garnished with cheddar, but I agree that it would be great as is. Thanks for posting!
