Skyline Chili

When you live and work at one of the most remote places on the planet, sometimes you just want a taste of home. For three Queen City natives, that means shipping an entire case of Skyline Chili to the South Pole so they can enjoy Cincinnati-style chili at "the bottom of the world."

If there’s anything more iconically Cincinnati than our chili, you’d be hard pressed to find it. Spaghetti, topped with a thin, sweet-spiced meat sauce and a pile of bright orange cheese: locals generally love it, and everyone else is just a little confused. Where did it come from? Why do Cincinnatians love it so much? Is it even chili?
