This was yummy! No changes were made; interesting flavor. Will make again
It looks good, it still not the real recipes.
My family gives it a 5 but I despise it! The cinnamon and cloves do it in for me. I'm a vegetarian and used to get Gold Star's vegetarian but they changed the recipe and it tastes like the regular chili so I don't eat it anymore. The chocolate gives it a pretty color.
I am a native Cincinnatian and I have made this chili and enjoyed it at several of our chili parlors for most of my life. While the spices are near to right there are a few things completely off about this recipe. First off you NEVER brown the meat first. It gets cooked in the sauce until tender. You don't add beans to the actual chili, it goes on top. If you want to try really good Cincinnati style chilli either come here or buy a Cincinnati chili seasoning packet and follow the directions. It's pretty close to the truth.
This is not authentic Cincinnati Chili. Call it something else. There is no vinegar or Worcestershire sauce in the real deal. It may be good, but call it something else.
Skyline is different than many versions of Cincy Chili. Skyline has no chili powder, meat is boiled, chilled and skimmed . Cocoa pwr or unsweet chocolate are both ok to use. Beans are a topping not an ingredient.
I have yet to make this recipe myself and will use beefless crumbles. (Vegetarian 'beef'.) As a gal that actually worked/managed a Skyline Chili restaurant from '96-'00, you cannot create an original but you may come close. I will be trying this and see how it comes out! (With the beans and onions AND if you add cheese, it's a 5 way!)
