Couldn't resist posting another 'chocolate' blog today.
DH and I met in Cincinnati and a visit to Skyline (Greek chili) once a week (if not more) was mandatory. We also spent a long weekend on a houseboat with several other couples every summer and would bring our version of "Skyline" as the Friday night meal.
This is not my recipe, but as close to it as I could find. www.cooks.com/recipe/dm3
3 lbs. lean hamburger
2 qts. water
2 lg. onions, chopped
29 oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
4 tbsp. chili powder or more
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate squares
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 drops Tabasco sauce
In an 8 quart kettle combine hamburger, water and onions; simmer for 30 minutes.
(Yes - there is nothing more awful looking than grey ground beef 'water'...)
Then add remaining ingredients. Simmer for 2-3 hours, uncovered.
Serve on steamed buns, over hot dogs, with onions and cheese or serve over spaghetti noodles, with onions and cheese.
Makes 6 pints.
If you plan to serve as a '4 or 5 Way' www.skylinechili.com/way
add 2 (16 oz.) cans of kidney beans to the pot with remaining ingredients.
Not the most 'healthy' way to become ""AWAKE! ALIVE! AWARE! and Appreciative of ALL that IS", but definitely a 'fun' one for me.
Thanks for letting me share!
