This is great Cincinnati chili! "Medium sweat" as far as spiciness. I served it over spaghetti pasta topped with shredded colby/jack cheese and chopped sweet onion. It was definitely different from the chili's we are used to eating. Had a sweet flavor and the cinnamon and allspice was kinda weird, but was definitely complimentary in flavor. I thought it was worth the effort and time to make. I added a little water to the meat when I browned it so it would break down into fine particles instead of crumbles. My hubby didn't like this at all, but he was a trooper and ate his plateful anyway. He said he doesn't like "Yankee chili". My son and I liked ours so much we both gave it 5 stars... I guess it is just a matter of taste. This isn't a traditional Texas style tomato, chili pepper, and meat type chili...if that is what you expect this is not it. If you like "Cincinnati chili" then I do recommend this! This chili freezes and reheats very well. Be forewarned though: it gets spicier after freezing and reheating! Thanks Holly!!!!


This chili tasted great! A touch of sweetness makes it stand out from the rest.


I made this and was very happy with the results. It is similar to the Cincinatti Chili recipe that I use and everyone loved it!
