Lovers of Cincinnati's Mediterranean-spiced take on chili are bound to savor this nod to the midwest’s culinary creations. We start with a hearty base of spaghettini, beef, onions, and beans. “Our Way” also features cinnamon, clove and a hint of dark chocolate! Preparing your chili requires boiling water and some waiting time, but if that’s too easy go ahead and kick things up a notch by adding shredded cheese, sour cream, and your other favorite garnishes.

Skyline Chili lovers unite! Everyone loves Cincinnati Chili and what is better than being able to take it into the backcountry with you. Imported freeze-dried Belgian spaghetti is the perfect pasta to hold the slightly sweet Greek-style tomato sauce that made this kind of chili so famous. We made it “our way” (pun intended) with freeze-dried red beans and onions in the recipe. The rich tomato sauce has warm spices like cinnamon, allspice and cloves. The secret ingredient and what makes it so authentic) is just a little cocoa powder. Make it “your way” with the addition of grated cheddar cheese, sliced jalapenos, tobacco or oyster crackers. Lean all-natural beef provides 20 grams of protein per serving. Nut free. Dairy free (unless you add the cheese) and soy free. Forget the chili mac, this is so much better tasting and better for you. Hearty. All you need is 2 cups of boiling water & 15-20 minutes hydration time & dinner is served! Lightweight & convenient this cult favorite will never disappoint. Seven year shelf life lets you be prepared for any emergency.
