Skyline Cincinnati Chili

The first and only time I have tried Skyline Chili was when Michael, our friend from Cincinnati, came to Spain and brought us a can of Skyline Chili that I cooked myself following the instructions carefully. A bunch of spaghetti, a huge amount of chili and topped with Cheddar, it was the most delicious thing on Earth.

Now, I can’t eat it because of my food allergies and also because they don’t sell it in Spain. But I have get a recipe that tastes the same and it’s awesome.

P.S: Michael, come back and bring some (a lot of) Chili!
