Cincinnati-Style Chili

Cincinnatians take the motto "have it your way" to the next level. Here in Queen City, hungry diners can have their chili two-way (spaghetti and chili), three-way (spaghetti, chili, cheddar cheese), four-way (spaghetti, chili, cheese, and onions or beans), or five-way (spaghetti, chili, cheese, onions, and beans). The gut-busting dish was created in 1922 by Tom and John Kiradjieff, owners of the now-famous Empress Chili.

Oh, Skyline Chili... My dad was so excited to share this w/ my siblings and I when we visited the areas as teens.. we loved it but my mom - not from Cincy - maintains that its watery and can't stand it!
