Crock Pot Cincinnati Chili! An Ohio-favorite dish gets the crock pot treatment with this Skyline Chili copycat recipe. Eat like a Cincinnatian with a chili made with hints of cinnamon and chocolate (that's NOT sweet!) and serve it like the locals do using the authentic "ways:" two-way, three-way, four-way, or five-way.
In a skillet over medium heat, warm vegetable oil. Add 1/4 cup onions and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Remove skillet from heat and set nearby.
In a large crock pot, add water and ground beef, then stir until ground beef is broken up.
Add tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, apple cider vinegar, chili powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon, cumin, and allspice, as well as the cooked onion and garlic. Season with salt, pepper, and cloves, to taste. Stir ingredients thoroughly until combined.
Cover crock pot and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.
Serve Cincinnati chili immediately as desired. See the post above for the authentic "ways" that this chili can be served. If chili is watery, make a quick slurry by whisking together 1/4 cup of the chili and 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour. Mix slurry back in with the chili and test the thickness. If needed, repeat slurry step until desired consistency is reached.
