Mouthwatering Homemade Chili {with a touch of sweetness}

Mouthwatering Homemade Chili {with a touch of sweetness} 1I just made the most delicious homemade Cincinnati Chili*.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 14-16 oz. can whole tomatoes with their liquid
  • 1 16 oz. can red kidney beans with their liquid (use a variety without added sugar, if possible)
  1. In a large stockpot over medium heat, saute the meat in its own juices until it is browned.
  2. Add the other ingredients in the order above. Simmer the chili gently for at least 30 minutes and up to one hour.

I served it up with plenty of cheddar cheese on top and cornbread on the side.

  1. Just last week I was in the mood for chili but couldn't find a recipe that sounded good or that sounded simple enough for my "limited" skills. This one looks perfect! Thanks so much for posting it!
