Seriously! My dear friend lil Jackie is a Cincinnatian. She totally gets Cincinnati chili on a level that most of us west coasters can only dream about. For a long time, I've wanted to make Cincinnati chili but how would I ever know if I got it right? I needed a real expert on the subject. I needed someone who could show me the ropes. Enter lil Jack great cook and Cincinnati native. Perfect situation. So we got down to fixing it. The whole house smelled like chili heaven!! And the taste of it.....OMG!
