If you’re from the Cincinnati area or have ever visited, then you know people in this area love their “Cincinnati style chili.” The local favorites, Skyline and Gold Star both offer vegetarian options, but I prefer to make it on my own.
This recipe isn’t the healthiest, mainly because of the spice mix you will need, but it is delicious comfort food and it is healthier than what you will find in the the restaurants. Like the majority of my recipes, it is also very quick and easy to make. Serving it over whole grain spaghetti makes is super filling and a great leftover lunch option.
Serves 4 - 6 people
1 Packet of Cincinnati Style Chili Spice Mix
3 cups of water
1 can Tomato Paste
1 can diced, unsalted tomatoes, undrained
1 can unsalted red/kidney beans, undrained
1 small bag of frozen corn
Combine all ingredients in large pot and simmer for 45 minutes - 1 hour. Yes, that’s all you have to do. Told you it was easy! I like to serve mine over spaghetti.
