This is an awesome chili that tastes very close to Skyline's. I recommend adding Frank's or Crystal's hot sauce as a condiment to douse the top of the spaghetti with. This also goes great on hot dogs. I know Texans will scoff and say that spaghetti and beans have no place in chili, but this is something you have to try for yourself to get the experience of. It is truly a Cincinnati thing, and is GREAT! Thanks for the recipe, you know I'll make this many times!

It has been a long time since I have been to Cincinnati but this sure tastes like I remember. I cut he recipe in half omitting the paste and pork.

I'veheard about this style of chili for years, but never encountered it before. It is definitely a keeper! We allreally enjoyed it. It freezes really well too.

Oh this was tasty! I doubled the chili powder and cumin, and added some cayenne and hot sauce at the very end since we all like some extra heat. The whole house smelled great the entire time it was cooking! Thanks!

Yummy!! I am not a native to Cincinnati so I am not sure what the chili is suppose to taste like, my boyfriend however is from the area. He said this recipe was very close to the real thing, maybe missing one thing but he could say what it was. No complaints from him though as he went for a second dish full! I think I might try to second recipe and see what he thinks! Very good recipe either way!

This was perfect. I made it for my hubby and inlaws, They lived in the Skiline area until a few years ago. And still make trips home just to get this. They enjoyed this very much and said it was very close to the origanal.
