Food Memory: Sweet Potatoes and Cincinnati Chili

foodmemory36.jpg

Even though many people don’t think it is a delicious food at all, the best comfort food for Husband is Cincinnati chili, a meat sauce with twinges of cinnamon and chocolate that is somewhat unremarkable but is quite elevated when layered on a bun with a huge quantity of sharp cheddar cheese on top. We made it even better by frying sweet potatoes in butter, pouring on the chili, and adding the cheese garnish, and it’s now become out go-to dish for friends with a Cincinnati connection or just for ourselves, eaten in a bowl while watching a movie. For such a savory dish, it also satisfies the little sweet tooth quite well.

    Fantastic! I’m a native of Cincinnati (though I don’t live there now). We have “Gold Star Chili,” “Skyline Chili,” and “Camp Washington Chili.” Glad to see fans of this dish. Thanks for posting. 🙂
