Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cook ground beef on stovetop over medium to medium high heat until browned through (about 5 min.) Add about 1/2 to 3/4 cup onion and the 1-2 cloves minced garlic and cook about 2 more minutes or until onion is translucent. The key with the onion is to cut the pieces pretty small, almost minced, so they are not noticeable. This is not your normal chunky chili, should be more of a saucy consistency. Break up the meat while you are cooking also!
  • Then, pour into a large (2-3 quart) soup pot. Add other ingredients (except cheese, noodles, crackers, and remainder of onion) and stir well. Bring to rapid boil, stirring frequently.
  • Once mixture boils, reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 50-60 minutes. Meanwhile, boil spaghetti to desired tenderness and drain.
  • Layer in a bowl as follows: noodles, chili, onion, cheese, oyster crackers. I recommend eating with a knife and fork. Delicious!

    Just wanted to note that I recently discovered boiling beef, and it works beautifully with this recipe. Doing it this way gets rid of most of the fat and leaves you with a super-small grain. Crumble the beef into a slow cooker at bedtime, cover it with water, and stir in a tsp of beef concentrate paste, and it's ready to go in the morning. Then before work, drain all but a cup of the liquid, add the rest of the ingredients,and let it cook all day (you *will* need to add cornstarch at the end). The most work you'll have is boiling a pot of spaghetti when you get home! As is, it's not a hard recipe, but it's also not something I want to start cooking after a long day at work. I've been making this since I happened across this recipe 9 years ago, and it's one of my family's favorites!

    I add a can of kidney beans, because it just doesn't seem like chili without them.

    I found this recipe a few months ago and have been making it at least twice a month since then. I live in Ohio and we used to go to Skyline a lot -- but the last two times I was there I didn't think it tasted as good as it usually did. Then I realized that Skyline hadn't changed, but it just wasn't as good as this recipe! My ten-year-old who won't touch Skyline LOVES this.

    Made this last night & it was a huge hit! Thanks for this - I had Cincinnati Chili once years ago & have never forgotten it; this tasted just like I remember.

    I adore Skyline and the whole family is addicted to the stuff. Dad#2 used to work for the Cincinnati Reds and we spent many a summer eating 3-ways or 4-ways after going to the ball park. Thanks for the post. I'm sure this will be added to our repertoire.

    Please do try it and let me know what you think. I have never had an unsatisfied customer! Your house will smell insanely delicious while it simmers, too.

    I've never had the pleasure of visiting Cincinnati, and this "Skyline Chili" is new to me, but it sounds DELICIOUS - we will be trying this one for sure!
