Saucier and sassier than most, the chili you’ll find in Cincinnati comes plopped atop a pile of spaghetti and smothered with all sorts of goodness.
With apologies to the politically correct, the froufrou, girlie-girl semblance of this recipe is just a guise. Trust us. It’s an unadulterated, manly man’s chili.
“Beautiful.” “Filled with flavors.” “A tad spicy.” “Simple.” “Perfect!” That’s just a taste of what our testers are saying about this soup. Sort of makes you want some, doesn’t it?
A soupy, stewy, smoky chili with stealth veggie goodness galore, including the likes of zucchini, bell peppers, and more. Healthful never tasted so darn good.
