Hot 3-way action means something totally different when it comes to Cincinnati chili. Its basic components are just like other red chili: beef, onions, and chili powder. After that, things get weird. Cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and allspice are not only staples in Christmas desserts, they’re prime movers and shakers here too. The multi-way aspect comes from how the chili is ordered in a restaurant, depending on the way you like it: 2-Way is chili over spaghetti (yes, SPAGH-ETTI), 3-Way is with cheese added, 4-Way adds onions, and 5-Way is the works: spaghetti, chili, beans, onions, and cheese. No matter what “Way” you order the chili, it’s always served with oyster crackers. I prefer it MY way: served over a hot dog or an Italian sausage.
