Cincinnati is often called "The Chili Capital of America" for its 100+ chili parlors, all serving a version of Cincinnati's distinctive brand of chili. It's actually more a topping than a stew.

The good citizens of Cincinnati consume more than 2 million pounds of chili each year, and for good reason. Try out some Cincinnati chili yourself, and you'll be a fan, too.
