@Peffy:  You can just add more liquid to any chili recipe- chopped tomatoes, tomato juice, beef consomme, red wine- the choice is yours.

@Peffy:  oh my gosh we have kitty twins! (Kinda) 

@julies1949:  +1, and if it ever gets too watery, I’ve mashed up a can of beans and added to the pot to thicken without having to add flour or cornstarch.

@Future_Mrs_Dr_I:  Leftover mashed potatoes are also a good thickener.

Try to look up Cincinnati chili. My dad has always made chili this way and it’s super watery. I’ve never made it but I remember the base being water and ground beef mixed until the beef was in superfine pieces. It sounds weird but it’s oh so good.

And you must put finely chopped uncooked onions on top. Gah, now I want this for dinner!

@trixiesrockets:  Woot! The only other person outside my family that knows what this is! Also, I’m from San Diego so that probably has something to do with it :D.

Cheese is necessary, but it’s not right without onions. I’m a big fan of it on top of a hot dog bun (sans hot dog- not my fav :). Soaks into the bread. Ugh. So good.

@missfrillycoat:  you’re dad is awesome! we can it a chili cheese sandwich when you eat it without the hot dog. A 3 way is chili, noodles & cheese. A 4 way is chili, cheese, noodles & either onions or beans. A 5 way is chili, cheese, noodles, beans & onions. :-P. now that you know the lingo you’re a true Cincinnati chili eater 🙂 .

@trixiesrockets:  Hah! I feel like I’ve been initiated!

Another thing that I think is a regional dish from Cinincatti that I grew up on- do you know of guetta/ghetta?

@trixiesrockets:  Yes he is. And I can never spell it right. Up until 3 years ago we actually just thought it was something his mother had created, not something an entire region makes.
