  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 3 cups chopped onions
  • 3 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 15 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoon semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 2 tablespoon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 31 ounces kidney beans 2 cans
  • 4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 16 ounce fettuccine


  • In Dutch oven cook beef, 2 cups of the onion, and garlic 'till beef is brown and onion is tender. Drain fat. Stir in the remaining ingredients except for the beans, cheese, and fettuccine. Bring to boiling, reduce heat. Cover; simmer over low heat 1 hour. Skim off fat. Cook fettuccine; drain. Serve with beans, cheese, onions, etc... enjoy! 
  • Now you can serve up your chili in one of many different ways. Two-Way Chili - Chili served on spaghetti Three-Way Chili - Additionally topped with shredded Cheddar cheese Four-Way Chili - Additionally topped with chopped onions Five-Way Chili - Additionally topped with kidney beans One of my favorite 'famous' recipes is Cincinnati chili - don't know if you've ever had it, but several places in Cincy specialize in it (Goldstar and Skyline are two of the majors). It's a spicy/sweet chili of Greek origin, typically served over spaghetti and topped w/ cheese, onions, and beans. Brian Harper
