Cincinnati 5-Way Chili
Spicy 5-Way Chili, seasoned with sweet spices and dark cocoa, has a flavor reminiscent of Mexican mole sauce. The chili originated in Cincinnati, Ohio, where chili parlors stand on many street corners. The chili is served alone, 1 way, 2 ways over spaghetti, 3 ways with added beans, 4 ways with chopped onions, or 5 ways with shredded cheese!
