A choice from the midwest by way of the Great American Hot Dog Book
. These Greek influenced dogs use Cincinnati Chile which is made with boiled beef and is known for the use of cloves, allspice & unsweetened chocolate. It is a totally different animal than a Texas chili. It is somewhat close to the meats sauce used on N.Y. SYSTEM HOT WIENERS
. The dogs get topped with yellow mustard, the Cincinnati Chili, diced onions and grated cheddar cheese. The Cincinnati Chili is also popular used over spaghetti served 3-Way, 4-Way or 5-Way. # way is spaghetti, Cincinnati Chili & grated cheddar cheese. 4-Way adds diced onions, while 5-Way adds kidney or chili beans. The recipe made a huge batch of the chili and I was going to cut it in half. I decided I would use it for spaghetti and I am very glad I went that route. Both the Coney Dogs and the spaghetti were excellent.
