“Recipe is from my grandmother. It's all part of a family tradition. Every year on Thanksgiving, our entire extended family gets together at a state park and stay in cabins; usually in West Virginia, Kentucky, or Indiana. Instead of turkey on Thanksgiving day, we all have Cincinnati Chili. Although this recipe calls for ground beef, it can be made with ground turkey instead. If you've ever had Skyline Chili or Goldstar from Cincinnati, this recipe is a little different. It has a kick behind it that Skyline and Goldstar don't have.”
