Blue Ash Chili
Diners, Drive-ins and Dives visited a restaurant in Cincinnati--Blue Ash Chili. Guy Fieri deemed it the best Cincinnati chili in the city. Cincinnati chili uses cinnamon as one of its ingredients, making the chili sweet as well as spicy. Also, it is served on spaghetti. You can choose it with onions, cheese, beans and jalapeno rounds--3 way through 6 way chili, in the vernacular. We chose 5 way chili for Steve and for me chili lasagna, another one of Guy's favorites. The lasagna came with two slices of garlic bread. We shared both entrees and the bread. Good thing we decided to share the bread before I tried it or Steve might have been out of luck--that garlic bread was good! I preferred the lasagna and Steve preferred the 5-way chili, but we agreed that both were good. I wondered if the owners of the Blue Ash were sick of making these couple of dishes. Maybe that's a downside to being featured on Diners, Drive=ins and Dives.
