      This is not the typical chili we'd serve here in Texas, so I'm really glad we gave it a try! This recipe is super simple to make, and everyone really enjoyed it. My four-year-old rates it "really really yummy," and my husband said I should definitely make it again. I served it with "Upgraded Mac N Cheese" ( Thanks for a quick and easy dinner!

      Super easy meal to get on the table quick! I loved the cinnamon, my husband did not. I will make again and probably skip the cinnamon although I know a true Cincinnati Chili would have it. We served it over spaghetti noodles and topped with cheese and green onions. Yummy and filling. Thanks Charmie!

      This family had a difference of opinion on which way to eat the chili. My daughter wanted to eat it with Ritz. She had two bowls of it cuz she liked it so much. My husband and I ate it over spaghetti. He didn't really like it that way. He said, "Beans don't belong on spaghetti!" He is mexican so I kinda knew that was coming. He wants it for lunch with crackers. I liked it over the noodles. I added some small diced red onions. Next time, I will leave that out. The only thing I did different was I only put 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. I was to scared to put the whole teaspoon. I kept thinking, this only belongs in baking but it was actually pretty good. Not overwhelming! I would make this again! Thanks!!!!
