“We fell in love with Cincinnati Chili when visiting Cincinnati several years ago. It's a bizarre, but wonderful comfort food. I've adapted this from other recipes, trying to find the right balance of heat, savoury and sweet. The classic is made with beef, but I've also made this with chicken and it's still great.”

  3. If way too thick, add extra tomato sauce and/or water.
  4. Serve as a 'threeway,' on top of cooked spaghetti, covered in shredded mild cheddar. Serve oyster crackers and hot sauce as accompaniments.
