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. Traditionally served over spaghetti or a hot dog, Cinicinnati chili is also unique in its eclectic blend of spices and the addition of unusual ingredients like cocoa (or chocolate) and molasses. Kidney beans, chopped onion, and grated cheddar cheese are the favored toppings, and oyster crackers and a bottle of hot sauce are served on the side. 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.
