My husband had this type of chili when visiting a friend in Ohio and was super thrilled when I made it at home. Our favorite way to serve it is five-way with spaghetti, cheese, onions and beans. —Tari Ambler, Shorewood, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 4, 2013

I use to work at Skyline chili when I was younger so I like to think I know a thing or two about Cincinnati chili :) this was very good. And I loved that it's on the lighter side. It's also low in sodium so I gave the recipe to my mother. She made it for my grandfather, and they loved it too. Great dish!

Wow! What a wonderful spin on the usual chili recipes. I loved the idea of serving chili over spaghetti noodles, and loading it with my favorite chili toppings! I was definitely intrigued by the sweet spices, and chocolate in chili. They gave it a wonderful exotic flavor. The only changes I made was adding sliced mushrooms with the onions and garlic, and adding a little extra broth. Delicious! I can't wait to make it, again!

This chili recipe is delicious! I usually make Texas style chili, so I was a little apprehensive over using the cinnamon, allspice and cloves. Trust me, it adds such a depth in flavor. My company had to have the recipe.
