Introduction

This is the Express Chili parlor, Cincinnati, recipe as published in the Cincinnati Enquirer. As stated in other recipes, Cincinnati Chili's spices vary from recipe to recipe. The chili is generally served over spaghetti, and topped with your choice of cheddar cheese, chopped onions, and kidney beans. I tend to thrown the kidney beans into the finished product. Also, I like to add some chopped sweet green bell pepper to the recipe while it is cooking. This is the Express Chili parlor, Cincinnati, recipe as published in the Cincinnati Enquirer.
