This Copycat Cincinnati style Chili Spaghetti is sure to please. I think this is a really good copycat version of the traditional Skyline Chili. What is great about this recipe is that you can make it fresh and unprocessed which I love! If you are from the Cincinnati, Ohio area you most likely grew up eating Skyline Chili. You can get "hooked" on this style of chili and in some areas you can't find the canned version in the store. It is easy to prepare and really satisfies your craving!
