Today’s Menu: Cincinnati Style 4 Way – Spaghetti, 3 Bean Buffalo Chili, and Cheese




3 Bean Buffalo Chili and Spaghetti 005
Not quite as cold this morning, about 39 degrees. Beautiful day out today, sunny and about 58 degrees. Made a light Breakfast, worked out, and ran Mom to Kroger and the Bank. Came back home and finished up some patch work around our new sod that I laid along the driveway. It seems, so far to have solved our drainage problems.For dinner tonight it’s Cincinnati Style 4 Way – Spaghetti, 3 Bean Buffalo Chili, and Cheese.



Last time I made this I used Hormel Turkey Chili w/ Beans as my Chili, which is a good Chili. But it’s not my 3 Bean Buffalo Chili! Made in a Crock Pot with Wild Idea I had 1 container of it left in the freezer so I set it in the fridge to thaw overnight. I’ll be using my regular Pasta, the Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Spaghetti. The Spaghetti is 180 calories and 35 net carbs, which isn’t too bad for Pasta. But it’s becoming tough to find Ronzoni Products around here in the stores. Kroger sells little or none of their items, Walmart it’s hit or miss, Meijer is about the only one to depend on to find it. Anyway for my Cheese I’m using Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar. To serve I used a bowl and made a bed of Spaghetti, topped it with the 3 Bean Buffalo Chili, and topped everything with Sargento Cheese. I also added a few shakes of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce to the Chili as it was being heated. Some mighty fine Chili spaghetti! Some people like adding fine diced Onions also, which would make it a 5 Way. Then for a side, one of the most important parts, Oyster Crackers! Chili Spaghetti is always served with a bowl of Oyster Crackers, why who knows. I used Skyline Chili Oyster Crackers with a side of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. To properly eat an Oyster Cracker you have to put 2 or 3 drops of Hot Sauce on it! At the end of the post I’ve left the 3 Bean Buffalo Chili Recipe, which I need to be making a new batch of soon. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte No sugar Added Peach Chunks.
