Product Description

Cincinnati Chili Preparing Directions: This chili has magical powers. It can get you past a bad break up or improve your productivity at work. However, in order to unleash the magic you must use the following recipe. It also makes the best batch of chili you'll ever eat. * 1 package of chili * 6 cups of water * 1 small can of tomato paste * 1.5 lbs of thawed lean ground beef * 1 bag of oyster crackers * 1 bag or brick of Tillamook mild cheddar cheese * 1 white onion The trick to making great chili is cooking time and temperature coupled with the consistency of the ground beef. In a large pot add 6 cups of water. Add 1 small can of tomato paste and the chili powder. Wash your hands, because you are going to be putting them in the pot. Now add the ground beef into the mixture, but shred it as finely as you can while it's in the water. You want as thin a consistency as possible. This is why it's important that the meat be thawed. Do not brown the meat! Next turn on the heat, beat mixture with a fork, and let boil for 1 minute. Then reduce to a rolling simmer. Let it simmer like this uncovered for about 45 minutes. Stirring occasionally. Use a wooden spoon for best results. After about 45 minutes turn the heat down to a light simmer for another 20 minutes. You can tell it's ready for the heat reduction when you stir and the chili starts to bubble out of the pot. After the 20 minutes remove the pot from the stove. Let is stand for 10 minutes. You don't want it too hot, because you don't want the cheese to melt into it.

Alright, for those who are not in the know, Cincinnati style chili has almost nothing to do with the firey bowl of red that most people think of when they think "chili." In some ways this style of chili has more in common with a stew called "burgoo" then with Southwestern Chili.

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.

This was the best stuff I have ever made. I can't stand chili.. but when I ate this I found a new liking for it.

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!

As far as I know there is only one supermarket that carries Cincinnati Chilli and that is Krogers (and not all Krogers). We do not have that chain here in Florida. I've driven to Georgia to buy it and I've also ordered it by mail. I'm so glad that Amazon.com carries this. It's so easy to make; just add the seasoning packet to tomato paste and water, crumble a pound of ground beef and serve it over spaghetti. Thanks Amazon.com.

I'm in the south east, 400 miles from Cincy & "the real thing." I have a box of frozen Skyline from the grocery, and a pack of this stuff (which is quite good.) The manufacturer on the back is listed as "SkyTime" at "4180 Thunderbird Lane, Fairfield, OH 45014" which is ALSO the address of the real thing, "Skyline, Inc."

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 found out years ago that it was very difficult to beat this version even making it from scratch! It takes so long. It involves so many ingredients and the results are hardly worth the effort. This packet produces a near perfect result over and over!

This is very close to what you'd get back in Ohio or Kentucky ,"Cincinnati style chili".... served over spaghetti with lots of shredded cheddar on top, or on a hot dog (called a "Coney dog"). Delicious !

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.

I have searched everywhere in my town for this Chili Mix when suddenly a lightbulb went off in my head--search the internet. I found it. Got it quickly, made some the next day, and satisfied my horrible craving! What got me started on this was a business trip I had made to Cincinnati (where my home office was located). After that, I got a friend in the Cincinnati office to buy it for me and send it in the company mail :)
When I quit working for that company, there went my chili. UNTIL NOW
