A note about serious food allergies
Cincinnati is famous for more than the Bengals and WKRP. There's a distinctive way of preparing chili that Ohio town has, one where they pile it on top of spaghetti. Distinctive and delicious, so we stole… ahem, paid tribute to… it here. Tomatoes, beans, and poblano pepper piled on top of elbow macaroni, topped with sour cream, cilantro, and gooey cheese. Spaghetti, chili… whatever you call it, it's darn tasty.
