and I've never even been to Cincinnati

cincinnati chili

1 large onion, chopped

1 lb extra lean ground beef

1 clove garlic, minced

1 T chili powder

1 tsp ground allspice

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground cumin

½ tsp salt

1 T Worcestershire sauce

1 T cider vinegar

1 ½ T unsweetened cocoa

1 15 oz can tomato sauce

1/2 cup water

In a large pan over medium high heat, sauté onion, ground beef, garlic and chili powder until the ground beef is mostly cooked. Add allspice thru water and reduce heat to low- simmer 1.5hrs. Uncover the pot for the last 30 minutes.

We had our chili "3 way style"(it'll be interesting seeing what kind of searches come up with *that* in my blog) -meaning it was served on top of spaghetti, with shredded cheese.


Oh, and by the way, I finished some socks....just gotta find the time to photograph them! Life seems to be moving in fast forward since Little Man started school.
