My family is from Ohio, and I LOVE Cincinnati Chili. Being in Texas, you just can't find it anywhere! I found this recipe online and it is fantastic. Very close to what I remember.

Outstanding! Our family loves Cincinnati chili too, and the combination of spices and flavorings in this version is perfect.
