Turkey Chili- Cincinnati Style

1

Our son, Christopher, requested this dish from me. Never having made Cincinnati Chili I had some homework to do. There isn't much difference from the chili I regularly make. But it's the presentation that is different. The chili is served over spaghetti with beans, onions and cheddar cheese. I was skeptical but surprisingly, it was very good. This will be my third pantry meal for the week. I'm making extra to freeze for Christopher to have the next time he's home.
