Uncle Sam's Cincinnati Five-way Chili (Skyline-style)

Here's a yummy and hearty recipe from my brother and Betsy's uncle.  


Cincinnati Five-way Chili (Skyline-style)
guest post by Uncle Sam

Souce: a pamphlet from the American Heart Association years ago
Serves: About three


1 lb. hamburger (lean for healthy, fatty for tasty)
2 medium onions, diced (one onion to cook, one to serve raw as a garnish)
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teas chili powder (or 1/2 teas red chile flakes) 
1/2 teas ground cumin
1/2 teas ground cinnamon
1/4 teas ground allspice 
1 can diced tomatoes (14 oz. can, NOT drained)
1 can kidney beans (14 oz. can, drained and rinsed)
3 T apple cider vinegar
2 T (heaping) semisweet chocolate chips
Grated cheddar cheese (as a garnish)
1/3 lb. spaghetti 

Brown the hamburger and sweat about half of the diced onions in a large pot. Bloom the minced garlic (heat directly against a cleared portion of the inner surface of the pot) for about two minutes. Bloom the chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, and allspice in the pot for about one minute. Add the tomatoes, kidney beans, vinegar, and chocolate chips. Simmer (the longer the better, all day if you have time, adding water if necessary). Cook the spaghetti to al dente in a separate pot about 15 minutes before serving. 

Serve in bowls, placing the chili directly on top of the spaghetti. Garnish with diced raw onions and grated cheddar cheese.

Note: the proportions of beef and bean can be  modified (if you don't have enough beef, use another can of beans).
