Cincinnati Chili

Just a short lame-o post with one lame-o picture, but the chili my friends, is far from lame-o.


Usually my chili consists of ground beef, beans,tomatoes, onions, and a packet of chili seasoning off the grocery store shelf and maybe some bell pepper if I'm feeling ambitious. And I'm okay with that.  
But I saw this at Gonna Want Seconds, and knew I had to try it. 

I think you should too.  That is if you're into spicy, smoky, sweet deliciousness.  And I think you are.
Go check out Kathleen's recipe and be in chili bliss.

There's nothing lame about this post. But I can't say I've ever had chili on pasta before!

Lara said...

Chili with noodles sounds like a winning combination to me!

Krista said...

You know I'm in love with this one! I'm contemplating another batch...soon!

Chili on top of Spaghetti...WOW!

The Japanese Redneck said...

Goods pretty good to me!

The only thing lame is the noodles cause they look kinda limp!

My husband lived in Ohio for many years. He loves Cincinnati chili. I on the other hand..LOL..can't stand it..the smell, the taste. Bleh. I like my chili spicy.

Another way to top Cincinnati chili is with oyster crackers. My mother in law makes this for my husband and then freezes it so I don't have to smell it because she cooks it and he eats it when I'm at school or whatever. LOL

I don't want to discourage anyone from trying it by me saying I don't like it. It's a very different tasting chili because of the spices used..like cinnamon and cocoa. Guess my tastebuds are picky. ;)

Mouth-watering! How unique to put it over pasta.

I love chili and actually I have had it with pasta many times. My boyfriends parents are both from Cinncinnatti and we love it with pasta! Looks amazing!

Joanne said...

I've never eaten Cincinatti Chili because I was never sure about the spaghetti noodle/chili combo. But I just need to get over it, a whole region of the country can't be wrong about this right? Thanks for sharing!

I've heard about this on the food network. It was popular in some state, I can't remember which one. Now I've gotta try it!

Katy ~ said...

Grins. I suppose using chili instead of spaghetti sauce is excellent; it's just spaghetti sauce on steroids, in a manner of thinking, LOL Delicious post.

Mary said...

This is a really nice chili. Have you ever tried it with elbow macaroni casserole style?

Julie said...

I've had my regular chili on elbow macaroni, love it! Apparently people think chili with pasta is bizarre :D

Judy said...
