Duggars' Cincinnati Chili Recipe

At the request of several of our readers, here is the Duggars' recipe for Cincinnati chili.

Duggar-Style Cincinnati Chili


Ingredients:

1 #10-size can (or 10 15-ounce cans) of Mexican-style chili beans
1 packet of Cincinnati Chili Seasoning
2 pounds browned ground beef or ground turkey, if desired
2 pounds cooked spaghetti
Assorted toppings of your choice, such as shredded cheddar cheese, chopped onions, crumbled crackers, sour cream, and chopped black olives

Directions:
  1. In a large pot, mix the beans and seasoning together, along with the browned meat, if you choose to add it, then heat.
  2. Serve over the cooked noodles. We serve this entrée with a variety of toppings on a buffet line.
  3. Our favorites are cheddar cheese, chopped onions, crackers, and sour cream.

I've been eating Cincinnati Chili my whole life and it did not come from a seasoning packet. This is by far the worse recipe I have ever read.

1.You are not suppose to brown the meat first. Raw meat, in pot, then cook.

2. Your recipe says to add the meat "of desired". Thats like giving a recipe for hamburgers and saying adding meat is optional.

3. You should not add sour cream or black olives to this dish. Thats not traditional cinci chilli.

4. Use oyster crackers or saltines. No need to crumple them.

5. Beans should be a topping not part of the chili base.

6. Where is the tomato sauce and onions in the chili?

I cant give out my recipe, but this should help

Are the seasoning packets usually in most supermarkets in the US?

OH my....that is a huge recipe; has anyone cut it down to a normal family size ??

I totally agree with the first sentence in Anonymous 1:33's comment.
There are much better recipes for Cincinnati Chili on AllRecipes.com. We prefer to cook the onions & kidney beans in the chili, instead of dirtying up a bunch of bowls with all the add-on's.

I just made this tonight and it was delicious. I went by the recipe, but I added a 6oz can of tomato paste. My family loved it!!! Thanks so much for the recipe. God Bless!

i have a comment and a question for everyone.

Just because you grew up eating something called "Cinci Chili" doesnt mean the Duggars recipie is wrong. For example, not everybody does meatloaf the same way, do they?

So if I make meatloaf with oatmeal or instant potatoes instead of breadcrumbs, or maybe mustard or mayo instead of catsup, is my recipe a bad recipe?

I havent tried this yet, but when I do I will leave out the beans and the onions. The chicken-etti was good as was the Tator Tot cass. so this also should be good. Thanks for letting me 'talk'.

You don't read? It says add the meat to the beans and seasoning if you desire to cook that way. As for browning the meat most people prefer their meat browned meat not raw because they have been conditioned by the media to not eat undercooked meat or fish. Also there are people who do not eat meat and that's okay too. As for the cheese..onions...sour cream and other choices it is stated that these are TOPPINGS! Maybe rereading it and not being so hasty might help.

Cincinnati Chili main flavor comes from coco powder, cimamon ,and chili powder. Still addicted..

I want to know how do you make this for one???

Hi Anonymous,

It would be fairly simple to cut most of the recipe in half or even into smaller portions, but the packet of seasoning would be the tricky part. We recommend making the entire batch and freezing the extras. Chili freezes very well.

I don't understand why the Duggars started the new season on September 17th this year and suddenly the season finale is on October 25th or so of this year. Isthere a problem? I mean folks that don't like them just oughta watch something else. But this show really needs to be followed not just let go! I mean that the Duggars and kliens. Why??? It's clean tv.

Negative. You can disagree without being rude about it. Just make suggestions. Dont be bitter and angry.

We ask for the Duggar recipes, not the other way around. Enjoying their life and how they do things is just interesting to most of us, but if you think your recipe is better, that's fine. There's no need to get upset if you like your recipe better or if you think their recipe isn't "authentic" enough. Most of us enjoy how down to earth this family is and just want to experience a small piece of it.

@Anonymous Looks like this link is a great recipe for Cinn Chile... However, bloggers were wanting the recipe that The Duggars use. And that is what is posted.

Relax folks. These recipes are what they enjoy. They may not even like YOUR version of it. I have my own personal recipes that everyone loves, but I don't presume to have the ultimate answer on anything I make as some of you!

I totally agree with you # 22. We're here to enjoy the Duggar's and all aspects of their life that they are generous enough to supply to us. Chill out. Deborah from Canada.
