If you’ve been to Cincinnati and have tried their chili, then you know it can only be Skyline Chili. A silky, thin sauce flavored with hints of cinnamon coats finely ground meat for a truly delicious and unique bowl of chili. Topped with shredded Cheddar cheese and diced onions, and you can call it a day. Oh wait, not until you place that chili, cheese, and onions on a bed of fries, though.
