Slow Cooker Cincinnati chili recipe. Lean ground turkey or beef (I used beef) with vegetables, spices, and beans cooked in a slow cooker.

Classic Cincinnati chili is served in 5 ways: chili is served alone,Β chili served over spaghetti, chili with added beans, chili with chopped onions, and chili with shredded cheese.

Learn how to cook Cincinnati Chili in a Dutch oven. To cook it in the oven you need to use the following ingredients:

2 pounds (960 g) lean ground beef,2 small yellow onions, peeled and chopped,2 tablespoons olive oil,1 tablespoon minced garlic,2Β½ tablespoons tomato paste

2Β½ tablespoons chili powder,2 teaspoons cocoa powder,2 teaspoons brown sugar,1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper,1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice,1Β½ teaspoons kosher salt,1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper,1 teaspoon cinnamon,2 cups (500 ml) chicken stock,2 cups (500 ml) water

4 cups (1L) tomato sauce,1 tablespoon cider vinegar, shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, and cooked spaghetti for serving


HeatΒ  2 tablespoons olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add chopped onions, season with salt and black pepper, and sautΓ©, stirring, until golden brown. Add meat and cook, breaking it into small pieces with a wooden spatula, until no longer pink.

Stir in garlic and cook for a further 1 minute. Stir in spices and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 1 more minute. Pour in chicken stock, water, vinegar, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

Partially uncover and cook for a further 2-3 hours, stirring every 30-45 minutes. When the texture is very tender, remove the lid and let the liquid reduce. The chili should be thick.

Serve Cincinnati chili over the cooked spaghetti, sprinkling with shredded cheese and chopped onions.
