What does it taste like? Well, for starters it is savory rather than spicy. It is also sweeter, which generally comes from the spices used (cinnamon, allspice, and cloves are not uncommon) and the use of chocolate. If you are familiar with the chili at the Steak & Shake chain of restaurants, it bears some similarities. (I dont want to over do the comparison, but I want to give people a frame of reference.) The resulting concoction is very flavorful but it doesnt really stand up on its own. As a result you rarely find people eating a bowl of Cincy chili by itself. Most often it is combined with other items to make the famous Chili 3-way, 4-way, 5-way's etc. For example, "chili 3-way" means Cincy chili over spaghetti, topped with a large amount of finely shredded cheddar cheese. Add raw chopped onion to that and you've got 4-way (my favorite). Add kidney beans to 4-way and you got 5-way. And that is the beauty of this stuff, you can dress it up the way you like.
Now, in Cincy there are a number of places that sell this stuff...and I never lived there. I did live in Dayton for a year and came to love this stuff. Skyline is the chain most people are familiar with and they make my favorite chili for 4-way. Gold Star is another chain many people prefer. I'm a little weird as I think the Gold Star coney is superior to the Skyline...but in general I like the Skyline product better.
However, making this at home was often a problem.Read more ›
You can't beat it.. its fresh, sharp, zesty with a hint of cinnamon!
If you want to try something new to you but an old cincinnati tradition,
get this stuff! The seller had it to me in like 3 days! and it was very fresh!
Thanks again for such a great deal! I will buy from you guys again!
So is this stuff really Skyline? Why not advertise as such? Oh well; it's good and seems authentic (been a junkie since 1984 @ U.C.) and I can make my own low-fat turkey variation my guts tolerate. Looking forward to hitting the Camp Washington exit next time I am that far north on I-75 :)
I made up some of this mix for a west coast crowd at a football party recently,suggesting that guests try it "3-way" style, over spaghetti, with shredded cheddar. I got some strange looks until the first bite ,then rave reviews after that.There was a ton of other food available, but that big crock pot full of chili was gone in about 15 minutes. One of the guests was from Cleveland, and she was pretty darn happy to scarf up a big serving of this old favorite.
If you aren't familiar with this type of chili , or are more of a traditional texas-style chili person, you could be in for a big surprise when you first try this ! It's completely different than traditional chili , and bears little resemblance. It's not particularly spicy, and has a sweet, aromatic flavor that is notably absent of chili powder and the other spices that define traditional chilis. It's not even designed to be eaten by itself, although a few people do.
I love that we have Amazon available , it's makes trying out delicious, quirky regional favorites like this both cheap and easy.
When I quit working for that company, there went my chili. UNTIL NOW
