Whenever I go somewhere I’ve never been, I do a little restaurant research. The first time I researched Cincinnati, I found myself inundated with chili parlors. I knew about Cincinnati chili, but I had no idea it was so deeply woven into the local culture. I picked out four places to try. If you told me you were going to take spaghetti noodles and dump cinnamon and chocolate-spiked chili on them, I’d say “What are you talking about?” When the first plate was placed in front of me, I thought, “This is the craziest food I’ve ever seen!” But I liked it enough to eat it four times in one day. It’s now one of my favorite got-a-craving foods. This recipe combines the elements I loved from all four places: It includes the heavy spicing of Skyline, the thin consistency of Pleasant Ridge, the finely grated cheese of Camp Washington, and the topping ratio of Gold Star. This might infuriate some people from Cincinnati, but it’s actually meant to honor their city’s signature dish. Oh, and if you’ve never had it, five-way means it includes chili, spaghetti, onions, beans, and cheese. Two-way is just chili and spaghetti, and you can figure out the numbers in between.
