Chili à la Cincinnati
A few months back, my bestest gal pals put together a collection of their favorite recipes and presented it to me on my birthday. Included in the beautiful homemade envelope was this jewel of a recipe. I’m still not clear on what makes this a cincinnati chili (maybe it’s their known twist on chili?), but I do know that this is a dish that both the pelirojo and I enjoyed.
This chili recipe was given to me by my friend Liz. Unlike me, she is a seasoned (haha, get it? I made a cooking joke! … *sigh…) cook who knows her stuff. She’s creative, awesome, talented AND she recently started a food blog over at Food Foolery. I’m excited to see all of her enticing recipes showcased on her site.
Have you taken a glance through the combination of spices in this beast? The addition of the cocoa was what caught my eye. Also, this bad boy is versatile because it can be made into a traditional chili or you can make it as a sauce. I was craving some pasta, so I decided to try the later option.
