Untruth In Advertising

     How can they call it "Chili con carne" when forensic tests show there's not a single speck of circus-roustabout meat in it?

It's homeopathic chili con carne.

The carney has been diluted to near-imperceptible levels.

That's OK. Cincinnati Chili does contain some kind of meat, and Mexican-Mole-Sauce-style unsweetened chocolate, but as far as I can determine there is no chili in the chili. As in no peppers.)

And if you've never had Cincinnati Chili, you aren't missing anything.

See, I like a good Cincinnati-style every once in awhile, kind of as a change.

If you ever find a "good" Cincinnati-style chili please post a location.

Around here all they serve(Gold Star and Skyline) is a bland, watery, spaghetti sauce they call chili. Guess I spent too much time in Texas.

Although as a coney sauce not so bad.
