Cincinnati Chili

Looking for a quick Christmas present that is homemade? Here is a family recipe for Cincinnati Chili, which is unlike most other chili recipes.

Spice packet:
Put in a small ziplock bag the following:

3 1/2 Tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons cinnamon
1/8 Teaspoons allspice
2 Teaspoons ground cumin
2 Bay leaves
2 Teaspoons salt

Copy the following text and print out little tags which you can staple to the front of the baggie:

Cincinnati Chili
In a large pot, combine:
1 spice packet
2-3 lbs. ground beef, browned and drained
15 oz. can tomato sauce
2 Dashes worcestershire sauce
1 quart water
1 large onion, chopped fine
3/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
15 oz. can chili beans (optional)

Simmer for about two hours or until desired thickness achieved. Serve over cooked spaghetti noodles.

2 Way: Chili over spaghetti
3 Way: add finely grated cheddar cheese on top
4 Way: add finely chopped onions on top
5 Way: All of the above with beans added to chili

Usually served with oyster crackers or cornbread.
Alternate: Spoon over hot dog in a bun, add grated cheese for a "coney".
