How to make it

  • Add olive oil to a large pot over medium high heat. Add ground beef and the next 8 ingredients. Stir while cooking until meat is lightly browned.
  • Add the tomato paste and tomato sauce along with the water, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves and chocolate. For more "fire", add the ground cayenne.
  • Bring to boil then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours. Be sure to stir occasionally to prevent sticking and carbonization of the bottom of your pot.
  • To Serve: Cincinnati chili lovers order their chili by number "3, 4, or 5-way".
  • 3-Way. Serve chili on deep sided plate or shallow bowl over cooked and drained spaghetti. Top with finely shredded cheddar cheese. This is called a three-way.
  • 4-Way. Sprinkle chopped raw onions on chili before adding cheese.
  • 5-Way. Add cooked beans (kidney) to the top of the chopped onions before adding cheese.
