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.
