My mom makes delicious Cincinnati-style chili. She got the recipe off a postcard years ago. We had it Christmas Eve and it was oh-so-good.
I know traditional chili isn't served with spaghetti, but try it. You'll like it! It's a great cold weather food and if your originally from Cincinnati and miss Skyline - its a classic comfort food!
