Cincinnati Chili is an iconic American dish that’s full of flavor, filling, and craveable. Kids will love it, and our recipe only requires 15 minutes of prep. Serve it over spaghetti noodles and top with cheddar and diced onions like a true Cincinnatian.


  • 1 lb Grass Run Farms Ground Beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • ½ cup tomato sauce

  • ½ Tbsp vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp allspice
