    Have your chili 3,4, or 5 ways, Cincinnati style. This is also great on hot dogs, smothered with shredded cheese.

      Where is the chocolate? Cincinnati Chile MUST have chocolate in to truly be the real thing.

      This recipe was a real winner in our house. I did add a bit of cocoa powder, and used chicken broth in place of the water, and it turned out delicious, with real depth of flavor. Thanks for posting!

      My husband and I loved this! We had it "5 way" for dinner last night, and we both took it to work for lunch today. It reheated beautifully. We left out the paprika due to an allergy and added a couple of squares of chopped chocolate. Our crockpot seems to get too hot even on low, but this cooked on low for 6 hours and was perfect. It reminded us of Hard Times Cafe, too. Since we only get there once a year or less when we visit friends 4 hours away, that is a real bonus!
