I don’t know the history on Cincinnati Style Chili, but it’s one of those things that you take for granted when you’re from southern Ohio. My dad loved whipping us up some chili over spaghetti when we were kids. It was a special treat to me. I didn’t realize until my 20s that most people didn’t enjoy chili over spaghetti.
I was obviously an Ohio girl. I’d never even heard of Skyline Chili at that point!
Cincinnati Style Chili has overflowed into my married life as well. My husband (a Pennsylvania through and through) loves it. But then again, Pennsylvanian’s put french fries on sandwiches. So, whatever. It’s good!
