    Default Cincinnati Chili for Two

    love chili, but don't want to fix the 'monster' batch because there's only two of you? well, here's my modified recipe that I fix when I have a 'taste' for chili
    Cincinnati Chili for Two
    1/2 lb ground beef
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 cup chicken stock
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup canned tomatoes
    1/4 tsp vinegar
    1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    3/4 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp cumin seed
    1/4 tsp ground allspice
    1/4 tsp cayenne
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 clove garlic, crushed
    1/2 bay leaf
    1/4 lb thin spaghetti
    8 oz kidney beans, hot
    1/3 cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded
    1/4 cup onion, chopped
    3 oz oyster crackers
    Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in a heavy nonreactive pot over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until beef turns brown. Stir in next 10 ingredients and salt to taste. Cover and simmer 3 hours over low heat. Skim off fat. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Drain. Serve chili ladled over spaghetti. Sprinkle with hot kidney beans, shredded cheese and chopped onions with oyster crackers on the side.
