Cincinnati chili is an easy crowd pleaser!!

We here at the BE-Hive are allllll about helping y'all make dope plant food. Here is some guidance on how to make some Cincinnati chili. WHAT IS CINCINNATI CHILI YOU ASK?!!? It is a meat only chili created by Macedonian immigrants that is spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, cumin, chili powder, bay leaf and sometimes chocolate! Usually served over spaghetti with onions and cheese, this is filling, protein packed and delicious!!

What you're going to need is:

  • 2 packs of The BE-Hive Seitan Chorizo
  • 1 onion, small diced
  • a little oil
  • tomato paste
  • vegan worcestershire
  • and a little bit of each of these to taste: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, cumin, chili powder, bay leaf, unsweetened chocolate. 
  • 1 package of spaghetti, cooked
  • vegan cheddar of choice
  • diced onions to top!

Make it at home by sautéing a diced onion with a 3-4 T of oil and garlic. Add chili powder, cocoa powder, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, a couple bay leaves and a pinch of cumin.

Cook for a little while until the spices begin to fill your kitchen with amazing smells and add your seitan. Saute for a couple minutes, add tomato paste, vegan Worcestershire, and water to cover, bring to a boil then simmer for 15-20 mins. 

Salt and pepper to taste.
