    I made this for dinner last night...I loved it but my wife hated it.

    Neither of us have ever had authentic Cincinnati Style Chili.

    Serve this over spaghetti and topped with diced raw onion and finely shredded cheddar cheese (Cincinnati style chili four ways).

    I got this recipe from Cook's Country on PBS.

    I spent a month in Cincinnati one day. I agree with your wife.

    I like Cinci but that chili has no beans or cumin? Here's one I like, it also has green peppers and I leave out the garlic. More my taste:

    Cumin Chili Recipe | Food & Wine

    Ingredients
    1 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
    1 onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 1/2 pounds ground beef
    3 1/3 cups canned whole tomatoes with their juice (one 28-ounce can), broken up
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    1 tablespoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
    1 1/3 cups drained and rinsed canned pinto or kidney beans (one 15-ounce can)


    Directions
    In a large saucepan, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook, stirring, until the vegetables start to soften, about 10 minutes. Increase the heat to moderate. Add the ground beef and cook, stirring, until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

    Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, cumin, oregano, salt, and black pepper and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes. Add the beans and simmer, partially covered, until the vegetables are tender and the chili thickened, about 5 minutes longer.
    Notes

    Variation:

    Add one ten-ounce package of frozen corn, thawed, to the chili along with the beans.

    That recipe sounds GREAT!

    I'm a chili fanatic, I'll definitely be making this. Thanks.
