“I adapted this from several recipes, and this is a favorite of the whole family. We like to eat it served on linguine with grated cheddar cheese and chopped sweet onion.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the ground beef and Italian sausage with about 1 T oil in a large sauce pan and brown over medium heat.
  2. Drain off excess fat, then add diced onion and minced garlic and cook for about five minutes, stirring often to prevent burning.
  3. Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the beans and bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer for one hour.
  4. Stir often to prevent sticking; add water or broth if the chili looks too dry.
  5. After one hour, add the beans and cook for 15 more minutes to heat through.
  6. Traditionally Cinci Chili is served over spaghetti or linguine with additional optional toppings including grated cheddar cheese, chopped sweet onion and sour cream.
