I think the word chili has become meaningless. Everytime I see a recipe for white bean chile I think "duh???"

Yet, the recipe looks interesting and I may try it. I'll just have to find a new name.

Oh no worry. I have a very good stomach. Now Mr. Acid Reflux would have not attempted such a feat. He'd have been awake all night. Plus, the large, I had to get a large for lunch the next day, it served as a two parter meal, and didn't know and don't know when I'll ever get to another Skyline so had to make it worth my while.
And it was...

I think for me, it stems from my favorite food on the earth, the one I want for my last meal, is spaghetti and bolognese sauce with lots of parm on top.
This type chili reminds me [sort of] of the same thing. I used to order spaghetti and chili at Bob's Big Boy almost every time I was there as a young lady with my friends and future husband. He knew that's what I'd order if we went there. It's kinda like so many in here probably like mussels or clams or calamari type foods. I do not.
So it's a preference thing. I am easily amused with food. I adore food. Can't eat things like this often or won't fit into my 'Justin's'. But every so often, I do treat myself and then I go back on the wagon. I had two extra large sweet teas too

Here is the recipe..
Cooks.com - Recipe - Cincinnati "Skyline" Chili

Personally... I can't stand the stuff. The overbearing cinnamon flavor turns me off.

One of the ones I highlighted up top is from Cooks.com, this one is similar I see with the addition of 1 t cinnamon whereas the one up top has 2 t cinnamon.
See Jeff, as I stated, you can't stand the stuff but I found it and the experience of finally getting there, fabulous.
Now, I've also been to The Lady and Sons, rented a car and drove gazillions of miles just to eat there, after wanting to for a hundred years. Glad I went cause I finally got that experience checked off my to do list, but the 3 page letter I wrote said it all. So all these jaunts I do are not always worthwhile, glad this one was.

I think it's what you grow up with most of us know chili to be the Texas style chili and in New Mexico it's an entirely different type of chili which is red or green but nothing like Texas chili. I do know that Cincinnati even has chain restuarants like fast food places that sells this particular chili as their main product.

IMO good Cincinnati chili doesn't make you stop and immediately think cinnamon. It should be much more subtle then that. A recipe with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon! Egads! Sounds like a restaurant size quantity.

I love chili in all it's translations. I have to admit, when I first moved to Cincy I didn't get it. Now I crave the stuff (in moderation!) and would truly miss it if I relocated!!! Texas Red, Chicken Chili, Cincinnati chili . . . love it all!
