A few years back, I shared my recipe for my favorite chili, and since it's Tasty Thursday, I wanted to bring it back for you all!!! 
My style of cooking rarely utilizes specific measurements. I always take a recipe and toss my own spin onto it. Anyhow, by looking at some friends' recipes, I kind of giggled to myself, as I do a few of their secret tips in what I call my "Married Chili". Married because, before I was married, I had my own style of chili, chunky, super garlicky and onion-ey with layers of heat... I use garlic as its' own food group and its' own heat source to add some depth. Then, I got married to a man from the Chili capital of the country, Cincinnati.  Cincinnati Chili is like no other chili I've ever tried, many pages try to make recipes that taste the same, but Hubby says it's no Skyline Chili... It's ground up, broken into intsy-weinsie tiny pieces. 

Here's the basic breakdown of what a true Cincy Chili is: 
  • two-way: spaghetti and chili 
  • three-way: spaghetti, chili, and shredded cheese 
  • four-way: spaghetti, chili, shredded cheese, and either diced onions or beans 
  • five-way: spaghetti, chili, shredded cheese, diced raw onions, and beans just tossed on top (bleh)
I make my own version of this with beans, cause to me, it ain't chili if it ain't got beans! I also like to  toss in some stew meat to make Hubby extra happy when he wants something extra hearty and filling.
