    We used to have this when I was a kid growing up in Ohio.

    Anyone else?

    I lived in Southern Indiana for some time, near Cincinnati. That's the norm there.
    BTW-
    If you like Cincinnati Chili, Skyline Chili has seasoning packets that make an excellent pot of chili. I used to buy them on visits at the Kroger stores, but I think they have them online too. It also makes the best coneys IMO.

    My family is from cincinati. We can get it in florida, from publix. Either the skyline or gold star is fine.

    Tradition.

    John Madden's Mess Recipe

    Okay, I admit it -- it does sound like a "mess"! This is from a January 1987 article in Family Circle magazine about throwing a "super bowl bash" with John Madden. This is John Madden's favourite, apparently.

    Try it, It's Great!!

    1 cup dried red kidney beans
    water, as needed
    1/4 lb bacon, diced
    1 lb ground beef
    1 large onion, sliced
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 (16 ounce) can whole tomatoes
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon leaf oregano, crumbled
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 lb spaghetti or fettuccine, cooked according to package directions and drained
    1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tamales, heated
    1 small onion, sliced (for garnish)
    dried red peppers, for garnish

    8 servings

    Rinse and pick over beans; place in a medium-sized bowl and cover with water; let soak overnight.

    The next day, drain beans and place in a medium-size saucepan and add one quart of water.

    Bring to a boil over high heat, lower heat, cover; let simmer until beans are tender, 60 to 90 minutes.

    Meanwhile, cook bacon in a Dutch oven or large skillet until crisp; remove with slotted spoon onto paper towels to drain.

    Pour off all but two tablespoons of the bacon fat; saute ground beef, large onion and garlic in bacon fat over high heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often.

    Add cooked bacon, undrained tomatoes, chili powder, salt, oregano and cayenne; stir well and bring to a boil.

    Lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 60 minutes, stirring every so often; steal some liquid from the beans and stir it in if mixture gets too thick.

    Now would be a good time to cook that spaghetti.
    Drain beans, add to meat/tomato mixture, and heat just to serving temperature.

    To serve, place hot drained spaghetti on a large platter and spoon all the chili on top.

    Cut tamales into pieces and arrange over chili.

    Finally, scatter raw onion and dried red peppers over top, and serve.

    Are ya Ready for some Football??!!

    We have a local restaurant chain,(Steak and Shake), that serves it numerous ways.
    Chili with spaghetti is called "Chili-Mac".
    "Chili-Three Way, is spaghetti covered in chili and topped with shredded cheese.
    "Chili-Five Way", is spaghetti, topped with extra meat, then chili, then onions, and topped with the shredded cheese.
    Hot sauce, the fifth way, is optional.
    Good stuff!

    That's not local. It's a national chain

    You know what's funny? I was about to start making some chili to put over spaghetti, and I thought I'd venture on down to the Food Forum (I don't visit much, unfortunately). This happened to be one of the very first threads. :)

    The only place I've had it before was the Hard Times Cafe. I believe they're only in the DC/VA area, and there used to be one in downtown Indianapolis, which I guess isn't there anymore. Good stuff if you've got the chance.
