My in-laws are from Ohio, so we have Cincinnati chili at many of our family gatherings. I spiced up this family classic with cinnamon and cocoa powder and then ladled it over hot dogs. It's perfect for game day, tailgates and potlucks. —Jennifer Gilbert, Brighton, Michigan

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook and stir ground beef until no longer pink, breaking it into crumbles; drain.
In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine beef with 1 chopped onion; add the next 8 ingredients. Cook, covered, on low about 2 hours; add hot dogs. Continue cooking, covered, on low until heated through, about 2 hours longer.
Serve on buns; top with shredded cheese and remaining chopped onion.
