Our Week 6 NFL Cookoff is up and running, this week we pay homage to two of Ohio's finest, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns.  These two teams go head to head today in one of the region's biggest rivalries. Our Yumologists did their homework to discover what chili recipes were representative of this region and we came up with the following:

Cincinnati Bengals Goetta Chili

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 quart of beef broth
1 bottle of dark beer (we used Sam Adams Oktoberfest)
2 diced onions
2 tins of red kidney beans
2 tins of diced tomatoes
2 tins of tomato paste
1 tsp salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, coriander
1 tbsp brown sugar
10 packets of maple and brown sugar oatmeal
2 packets of gravy mix

  • Add all of the ingredients except the oatmeal and gravy to a large crock pot and allow to cook on high for 4-6 hours until the chili thickens and the meat cooks thoroughly.
  • Add the oatmeal packets and the gravy mix, stir until the oats soften and serve. 

Cleveland Browns 3 Way Spaghetti Chili

1 lb ground beef
1 diced onion
1 tsp salt, black pepper, garlic powder, white pepper, ground cumin, chili powder, cinnamon
1 tin kidney beans
1 tin of tomato paste
1 tin diced tomatos
1 bottle dark beer
1 small box spaghetti
Diced onions and cheese to top

  • Add spaghetti to boiling pot of salted water
  • Brown the beef in a medium sized pot, add the onions and cook until the beef is completely browned and the onions are translucent
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except the beans, to the pot and simmer on a lower heat for 20-25 minutes
  • Add the beans and simmer for about 10 minutes
  • Once the spaghetti is al dente, drain.
  • Add the chili to the top of the spaghetti
  • Top chili with diced onions and cheese and serve

Two very unique chili recipes, but ones we hope the people of Ohio will appreciate and enjoy together as they cheer on their respective NFL teams. GAME TIME!
