Product Description

A sweet and spicy trademark from the ‘Queen City of the West.' In 1922, Greek born Joe Kiradjieff and his brother John opened the Empress, the area’s first chili parlor. Their distinctive sweet yet robust chili included cinnamon and several other “secret” spices. Today, over 100 Cincinnati style chili parlors thrive in this region making Cincinnati "America’s chili capital."

4 cloves garlic, minced

3.When beans begin cooking, start making the chili. In a large stockpot, begin browning the ground beef over medium heat. Use a fork to break up the meat into very fine pieces. Add onions and garlic. Cook for 15 minutes until meat is browned, stirring occasionally. Then, add the tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, honey, white vinegar, chocolate, and contents of seasoning packet. Mix well and cook, covered, over medium low heat for 1 to l 1/2 hours. Stir occasionally until desired thickness is achieved.
4.One half hour before chili is completed, heat 2 qts. of water and 1 T. salt in a large pot. Bring to a boil and add spaghetti. Stir once and cook according to the directions on the spaghetti package.
5.While spaghetti, chili and beans finish cooking, shred the cheddar cheese and dice the 2 onions. Set aside.
6.Drain the beans. Now you are ready to assemble Cincinnati 5-Way Chili. Beginning at the bottom, assemble 5-Way Chili in this order: spaghetti, beans, chili, cheddar cheese and onions.

The traditional accompaniment to this gastronomic masterpiece is oyster crackers. Also, don’t try to be neat. It never works. Simply dive in. Thank you, Queen City!

Serves 5. Enjoy!
