Crock Pot Cincinnati Chili

I've heard this dish was invented by the folks at the Skyline Diner in Cincinnati Ohio. Hence the name. I first encountered this unique dish in a magazine I read about 20 years ago! Serve up a bowl of this beanless chili on a cool November evening or Serve it over a bed of spaghetti noodles (my family's personal favorite!) with a heap of cheddar cheese on top, for a dish everyone will rave about. You could even serve it at a July picnic as an impressive homemade chili for hot dogs. Oh and don't let ingredients like allspice, cocoa and cinnamon fool you. It really does turn into yummy chili!
