For the Spice Blend, mix chili powder, sugar, cinnamon, garlic powder and salt in small bowl. Set aside.
Cook ground beef and 1 cup of the onions in large saucepan on medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink; drain fat. Add Spice Blend, water and tomato sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve chili over spaghetti. Top with kidney beans, and remaining 1/2 cup onions. Sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired.
Excellent recipe. Prepare Cincinnati Chili for the first time and it was an immediate hit. Will definitely keep this as a winter staple. ~Thanks McCormick~

Needs cocoa powder or chocolate also. Hint: cook ground beef with a bit of water and 'mush' it up as you heat it to obtain the fine ground consistency typically found with Cincy chili.

We Cincinnatians know you must have cocoa in it - and allspice. Also, meat cooked in water slowly all day it makes the chili melt in your mouth.
