      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.
