Author's Comments

Cincinnati chili is a little different from Texas style chili, and has middle eastern origins. Usually this type of chili is served with hot dogs or over spaghetti. Where I live in Ohio, you can sometimes find hot dog flavored potato chips to use with this dip, which is great. But it is good with other types of chips as well.
