NotesIn watching a food show, I saw a ground beef chile sauce that was totally unlike anything I had ever heard of before. I made up this recipe from watching what they did - so I apologize if am not doing the "real" recipe justice, but it is pretty fun to make and can be converted into many different dishes. The real version I think is called cincinnati chili, but mine is a crazy california concoction.
