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.

I am a BIG fan of this mix, and I make a lot of different kinds of chili. It creates an awesome flavor and you serve it over pasta. However, I have a very nontraditional recipe which is killer good. I make this often. It is the ultimate comfort food. Some of you purists will hate this, but here is the recipe (try it before you complain):

Doctored Cincinnati chili recipe

1 pkg Cincinnati chili mix, from Skytime
Additional chili powder and cumin (not super spicy), to your preference
1 to 1 ½ pounds ground beef
1 6 oz can tomato paste
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 onion
3 stalks celery
3 carrots
1 green pepper
16 oz mushrooms, sliced
2 15 oz cans of red kidney beans
Chili powder
Cumin
Salt

Step one:

-- In a large pot, combine package of chili mix with can of tomato paste, can of diced tomatoes, 6 cups of water . Can also add a bit of additional red chili and cumin at this point
-- Add the ground beef. Do not brown.
-- Heat to a boil, reduce and simmer about 1 hour

Step two:

-- Saute garlic and onions in a large skillet. After about 3 minutes, when onion gets soft, add celery, carrots and green pepper.
-- After a minute or two, add the mushrooms and a dash of salt. When the mushrooms are just starting to get soft, add chili powder and cumin to the mixture and continue sautéing until the mushrooms have released moisture.
-- Add the sauté mixture to the pot of chili
-- Add the kidney beans to the mixture
-- Simmer until the flavors are well mixed, at least a half hour

Serve over pasta of your choice, garnished with parmesan cheese.

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!

It was so 'unchili' like. Too much seasoning I love Cincinnati Chili, w/a touch of cinnamon and cocoa but this was overpowering. The directions were also unusual, 6 cups of water, 1 sm can of tomato paste, 1 envelope of Cincinnati Recipe then add raw lean ground beef to the pot. Even after simmering for 2 hours, it never thickened up. Needless to say, I would like to return the remaining 5 packs of seasoning but lo and behold, it is a non-returnable item. Darn. So buyer beware.

I love this stuff! It is a great alternative to regular chili or regular spaghetti. My husband has had the original out in Ohio, and likes it even more when I make it at home. The first time I tried it I thought it was strange because it's kind of like chili but sweet and on spaghetti, and it's kind of like spaghetti but like chili. We add a little hot sauce on top, layer it on spaghetti noodles with heated Bush's chili beans, fresh raw white onions, and cheddar cheese. It's a delicious warm supper!

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.
