How to Make Cincinnati-Style Chili
1In a 4 1/2 quart Dutch oven or heavy saucepan, cook ground beef with the 2 onions until beef is no longer pink; drain off any fat.
2Add the tomato sauce, water, chocolate, chili powder, vinegar, worchestershire sauce, cinnamon, cumin, salt, garlic powder, allspice, clove, bay leaf, and red chili pepper or ground red pepper.
3Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, over low heat for 45 minutes or until desired consistency; stirring once or twice.
4Remove bay leaf and, if using, chili pepper. Serve over hot cooked spaghetti and, if desired, top with onions, cheese and/or beans. Offer Oyster crackers and hot sauce!
