Sup valley girl.
Probably just overall the worst food.
I use to live in Price Hill and worked at the original Skyline. I was always told it was Greek Americans that invented it. It is the best chili I've ever had and still make it at home for my family. BTW without beans is a four-way.
greek, macedonian, noodles, cincinnati…
You practically have to grow up in Cincinnati to appreciate what we proudly call Cincinnati chili. There are perhaps more than a dozen local joints that each have there own version. And yes, they all seem to be owned by Greeks. My personal faves, Dixie Chili and Blue Ash Chili. Dixie has the usual 2, 3, 4 & 5 way but they go one step further and offer a 6 way; fresh chopped garlic! BAC has deep fried jalapeño bottle caps you can add to your chili-n-spaghetti, or even a cheese coney – yummm…
Most of my friends who are not from Cincinnati, even as close as Dayton, OH, have a really strong dislike for it. It's just whatever your tastebuds find delectable.
If you take the basic recipe and tweek it a bit, brown the meat instead of boiling it, lay back on the cinnamon and sugar and go with some good paprika and a touch of dry mustard, this can actually be a decent sauce. Sadly most of the time it is horrifying.
Really bad video. Didn't think I would say this about any other Eater videos
Did you know that Cincinnati chili looks and tastes like shit? Skyline, for instance, is fucking trash. Man Ohio is just the worst.
Its 100% American for all the reason you state it isn't.
It was invented in America by an American, it's an American dish.
