ospidillo cafe cincinnati chili no 2


if you've ever eaten "cincinnati chili" at gold star chili, empress chili, or skyline chili restaurants in cincinnati, ohio and liked it, then you'll love this recipe. it's really "greek chili" and most copycat recipes have chocolate in them -- this one does not. use this chili over spaghetti (topped with shredded cheddar, diced onions, and tabasco, a.k.a. "thee-way"), or, use it as a great hot dog (coney) chili sauce. yes, it takes awhile to make it but you won't mind so much after having tasted it.
