It was a great combination of spices and ingredients. And I would have no problem substituting cocoa for the chocolate again either. I hate buying something "dish specific" and am glad I didn't make an unsweetened chocolate run.

We'll be having leftovers here. There's some salisbury steak and mashed left, as well as chili and cold cuts, and taco ring. The yungun is visiting friends so just DH and I for dinner.

Pacanis and msmofet - I occasionally use Hershey's syrup in chili. The chocolate changes the flavor and adds a little sweetness to it that my family prefers. If I don't add the chocolate syrup, I add apple jelly or applesauce for the sweetness.

I was pretty happy with my first attempt at Cincinnati chili.
This looks really good. I see you did the cheese and onion on top too.

I never felt really excited about Cincinnati Chili. The spaghetti threw me off. How does it compare to "regular" chili?

Thanks Andy. Yeah, I went all out. I don't even put cheese or onions on regular chili, but I wanted the whole effect.

Kind of a rough comparison would be, I can eat a big bowl of regular chili, be it with beans, without beans, with burger, with steak, chunky, soupy... you get the idea. But I could probably only eat a cup of Cincinnati chili, plain, by itself. It was more like a Greek sauce than a chili, IMO. It had a nice spiciness and depth to it, but is probably better suited to be served on something, like they suggest. I used rotini so I could still use a spoon. Albeit a large spoon
I'll make it again, but I will serve it the same way, on pasta.

Here's the recipe I used if you're interested. I halved it and will get two servings. Cincinnati Chili I Recipe - Allrecipes.com
