  • Stir in tomato sauce, water, chopped tomatoes, vinegar, chili powder, cinnamon, paprika, allspice, light brown sugar, cocoa, and hot sauce. Heat over medium-high heat until the mixture begins to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes until sauce thickens.

  • While the sauce is thickening, bring a large pot of salted water to boil; place spaghetti in the water and bring it to a boil again. Cook until al dente. Drain well.

  • Stir beans into the chili and mix lightly.

  • Spoon cooked spaghetti into bowls and top with chili. Sprinkle with cheese if desired.

I just made this and I have to admit that I thought it was horrible. I followed the recipe to the tee, so I guess it just wasn't my style! Read More

A great chili recipe! I've tried to find a good vegetarian version and this one is the best so far. The addition of atypical chili spices may make you skeptical but the finished product is worth the risk! I added two medium vine-ripened tomatoes chopped when the canned tomatoes were added to increase the flavor. Next time I will halve the water as ours was too watery and we had to simmer it uncovered for about 10 minutes extra. However that 10 minutes made the beans just tender enough and I would add them half-way through the simmering time to make sure they are tender enough for the next time. Another suggestion would be to halve or leave out the brown sugar it was a bit too sweet for my taste but will definitely make it again! Read More

GREAT!! Very tangy and spicy. For non-vegetarians it works with 1/2 lb ground beef too. Read More

Loved it! Nothing else to say except don't be put off by the seemingly weird combination of cocoa powder and cinnamon in your chili--it is really good. Discovered that many southerners have never heard of Cincinnati much less tried their famous chili! Read More

This was great. We loved it. We used to live in Cincinnati and this tasted just like the chili there. To make it "5-way" top with chopped raw onion. Read More

This recipe was a big hit with the whole family--even the 2 year old. He enjoyed scooping the chili with tortilla chips rather than having it on spaghetti. Read More

This was a nice alternative to traditional chili (if there is such thing). I did add 1 TBL cornstarch as a thickener. Read More
