My all-time favorite chili with you, Cincinnati Chili. I grew up on this chili and this recipe for me was pretty darn close to the real stuff. Serve it with oyster crackers or put it on top of spaghetti for the true Cincinnati experience.
Optional: Cooked spaghetti or hot dogs and shredded cheese
Sauté your onions for 2-3 minutes on medium-high in a large pan. Add beef and garlic and cook until beef is almost fully cooked. Drain fat as needed. Add chili powder, cinnamon, allspice, salt, unsweetened cocoa powder, and mix together. Add tomato sauce, cider vinegar, and water.
Reduce heat to low and let the chili simmer for 1-2 hours.
Place chili on top of spaghetti or hot dog and the with shredded cheese.
