Twelve-Way with Cheese Released

12 Way with Cheese

Cincinnati has a different way of serving up Chili.  Instead of the chunks of meat found in other cities around the globe, Cincinnati chili is ground fine (like taco meat size) and usually has cinammon or chocolate in the ingredients.  Moreover, it is served over thin spaghetti.  A 3-way is Chili, Spaghetti and Cheese.  A 4-way adds onions or beans and a 5-way adds both.  Different foods blended together to make a great meal.

Well now several of the regulars at the Cincinnati Illustrators Blog who get together weekly to exchange horror stories and share work have come up with a Twelve-Way.  No you can’t eat it.  This group of editorial cartoonists (no not me), greeting card and magazine illustrators, and animators have created a humorous anthology showcasing each of their work in off-beat ways.  And like its chili counterpart, it comes together as one great taste.   The stories are woven together by a Crypt Keeper of sorts (a zombified Marge Schott – the deceased outspoken former owner of the Cincinnati Reds).

    I once worked with a gentleman from Ohio who spoke about this chili-spaghetti dish—It sounds spectacular…Rampant marijuana use amongst restaurant employees, especially the cooks—has plenty of benefits.

    Now please excuse me while I go eat some cinnamon-toast crunch for dinner…

  2. Beef and chocolate you say? Hmmm … hmmm … this is … well, I must admit I’m rather taken aback sir! 🙂

    oh, now you’ve done it – i’m a’ droolin’ for Skyline (NOT Goldstar! SKYLINE!) Mmmmm… and not zombie marge schott. although i’m guessin’ she hasn’t changed much in the last couple years!

    Remind me not to order no chili north of the Mason-Dixon line. You could get shot in Texas for just havin’ – recipe like that.

    Blahahaha chili never caught on down under but now if you addded chocolate??????? Sweet smelling farts!

    Anywho, I read the article and wow, that is a fantastic idea. Here’s hoping you get into the thirteen way edition 🙂

    Psst Glad you explained it or I would have thought it was something kinky!!!!!

    2nd Psst Jammers thinks it is and has ordered 50 copies 🙂

  6. The Cinci form of Chili sounds delicious. But I love the idea of a zombified Marge Schott even more. You wouldn’t really have to alter her appearance that drastically either. WiN!

    Speaking of regional cuisine..(ahem) have you ever tried a Primanti Bros sandwich from Pittsburgh?

    • Bearman says:

      Of course I have. But it was the Primanti Bros in Ft Lauderdale. Not pittsburgh.

      I am trying to remember the bar that I had the great sandwich in Pittsburgh. It was a lobster sandwich in a bar on top of the hill above the city.

      • I’m not sure which bar or restaurant it was in, I haven’t been there in 8 years now anyway, but I know it was on Mount Washington. Beautiful view of the city up there!

    I want to join! Awww…why do all the other kids never let me join their groups?!

    One of my favorite dishes has Mole’ sauce, a chocolate concoction that when done right is the greatest thing in the universe. Cinnamon in spaghetti sauce works great, but a little goes a long way.

  11. chocolate? so not only will their chili give you gas, but it will also make you fat and acne ridden.

    Chocolate in chilli, interesting concept…


  1. […] their bare-ass cheeks to everyone in the bleachers…Inspired by piss-warm Stroh’s and Cincinnati Chili, the remorseless Ohio mob in the stands began to grow increasingly barbaric with each passing […]
