    Chicagoland Chef du Jour's Note:

    My husband grew up in southern Ohio where Cinc'y Chili reigns supreme! I first became acquainted with it some 16 years ago on on honeymoon. YUM. The rest is history. Whenever we are visiting family and friends we stop for a bowl & dog, whether we are hungry or not. Authentic Cinc'y dogs are 100% pork although here in Chicago we have been known to use 100% beef, they both work but no other substitutes are quite the same. For the full on experience, all the other ingredients are NOT optional! :D We make our own Cinc'y chili at home using the Empress - Cincinnati Chili. Cook time does not include making the chili ahead of time (4 hours minimum). Cook & prep is enough time to cook & assemble the dogs. Enjoy!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Make Empress - Cincinnati Chili, this will take several hours to reduce down to the proper consistency.
    2. 2
      Dice the onions and grate the finely grate cheddar cheese. TIP: place the cheese in the freezer for 15 minutes before grating and it will be easier to work with.
    3. 3
      Gently simmer the hotdogs until warmed through and hot, do not boil them to death! They just have to be heated through.
    4. 4
      Open up your hotdog bun, squirt with yellow mustard, add the hotdog, top with Chili, onions & cheese!
    5. 5
      Grab a bunch of napkins cuz this gets messy! Enjoy!
    6. 6
      You will have plenty of Chili leftover to enjoy over spaghetti noodles another day or serve both!
