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!

    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!
