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 Recipe #249986. 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!
