“This is a wonderful chili that is a personal favorite of mine! I usually get this from "Skyline Chili" in KY, or from "GoldStar Chili" in OH...This is excellent used for chili dogs (with a mound of shredded cheddar cheese on top) or as a 3-Way (which is poured OVER a mound of spaghetti and then topped with a mound of shredded cheddar cheese.) Either way, YUM!!! One of my very favorites, and my kids love it too...HINT: The cinnamon makes all the difference!”
