Cincinnati Chili

I saw this recipe for Cincinnati Chili on Sweet Pea's Kitchen. It looked delicious and was something I had never tried before. The beef mince is cooked with interesting flavours - cocoa, cinnamon, allspice and cayenne pepper. And don't forget chilli of course! I have to admit I didn't add the amount of chilli powder the recipe suggested.

I really liked this dish, it was quite sweet but not too much so. The initial flavours you came across in a mouthful were the mellow cinnamon, cocoa and allspice, then the heat of the chilli slowly built up at the end. My husband pointed out how nice it would taste in the middle of a whole roasted potato - and I agree!

I had to add this photo that my three year old took of her lunch yesterday!! She wants to join in with my blogging hobby :)
Can you believe it? - she is a better photographer then me!
