One of the ways I have tried to keep things ‘normal’ around my house after my Gluten Intolerance Diagnosis, was to turn recipes that we used to eat into Gluten-Free Recipes. My sister in law introduced me to Skyline Chili a few years ago – this is a Chili Recipe that can be served over Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, or Pasta.
Skyline Chili was originated out of Cincinnati Ohio and was introduced through Skyline Restaurants, which offers many Gluten-Free Menu Options. I was bound and determined to make it at home because I loved it so much when I first tried it! I think this is the recipe that tastes the closest to the original recipe – I serve it over my favorite Gluten-Free Pasta Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta. This is the closest Pasta that I have found to regular Spaghetti, it is not mushy and stays to form when cooked.
Here are the Ingredients:
- 2 cups cold Water
- 1 lbs ground beef
- 1 cup crushed tomatoes
- 1 yellow onion – Diced very fine
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (Use Lea & Perrins which is Gluten-Free)
- 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa (Hershey’s Cocoa is Gluten-Free)
- 1/8 – 1/4 cup chili powder (flavor to taste)
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/2 – 1 tsp ground cumin (flavor to taste)
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
- 1 whole bay leaf
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves (flavor to taste)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
Here are the direction:
- Boil 1 lb. Ground Beef and one Onion, Finely Minced, in 2 1/2 cups of water for 30 minutes or until Ground Beef is cooked all the way through.
- Add all the dry ingredients and Garlic Cloves directly to the meat and stir. I start of with the lowest amount of spices listed above – then taste it as I go along to see if I need to add any more of the ingredients to make the flavor better.
- Add Crushed Tomatoes and Worcestershire Sauce – then stir.
- Cook over low heat for 1 hour – skim fat off the top of the chili.
- Serve over Hot Dog, Hamburger, or Gluten-Free Pasta.
- Top with Shredded Cheddar Cheese (We use Cabot) and Sour Cream.
- You can also top it with raw Red Onions and Kidney Beans.
