    Title: Cincinnati Chilli
    Categories: Beef, Herbs, Chilies, Chocolate, Vegetables
    Yield: 8 servings

    2 lb Ground beef
    2 md Onions; chopped
    2 c Water
    8 oz Can tomato sauce
    6 oz Can tomato paste
    3 tb Chilli spice mix
    1/2 oz Unsweetened chocolate;
    - chopped
    4 cl Garlic; minced
    2 tb Cider vinegar
    2 ts Worcestershire sauce
    1 Bay leaf
    1 ts Salt
    1 ts Ground cumin
    1 ts Ground cinnamon
    1/2 ts Ground allspice
    1/4 ts Ground cloves
    1/4 ts Cayenne pepper

    Hot cooked spaghetti
    Shredded cheddar cheese
    Additional chopped onion
    Rinsed, drained kidney
    - beans
    Oyster crackers

    In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook the beef and
    onion until the meat is no longer pink and the onion is
    tender, about 10 to 12 minutes. While cooking, break the
    meat into the smallest crumbles possible; this is not
    chunky chilli. When cooked through, drain some of the fat
    off the meat.

    To the pot with the meat and onions, add the water,
    tomato sauce and paste, chilli powder, chocolate, garlic,
    cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf and
    spices. Bring everything to a boil, then reduce the heat
    and simmer, uncovered, for about 1 to 2 hours. The
    consistency should be more soupy than a thick stew.

    Discard the bay leaf and serve, if desired, on top of
    cooked spaghetti with any variation of cheese,
    additional chopped onion, kidney beans and oyster

    First, never eat Cincinnati chilli with a spoon. This is
    a fork food, at least thatC╟╓s what the locals will tell
    you. As mentioned, one of the most popular ways to eat
    this chilli is on top of spaghetti with various toppings.
    ItC╟╓s also super popular on hot dogs, which are called
    coneys - maybe an homage to New YorkC╟╓s Coney Island, but
    more likely the Coney Island amusement park built in
    Cincinnati in the late 1800s. Whether itC╟╓s served on
    spaghetti or as a Cincinnati chilli dog, get it with a
    mountain of cheese and onions.

    There is a method to the madness, however. To order
    Cincinnati chilli like a true Cincinnatian, youC╟╓ll want
    to use the proper lingo. There are a few different
    *ways* to order your ideal bowl with confidence:

    2 way: chilli + spaghetti
    3 way: chilli + spaghetti + cheese
    4 way: chilli + spaghetti + cheese + onions or beans
    5 way: chilli + spaghetti + cheese + onions + beans

    A proper coney can be a simple bun, hot dog and chilli,
    or one topped with chilli, mustard, onion and cheese.
