8 oz tomato sauce
4 tsp chili powder
4 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt
5 Bay leaves
1 tsp ground allspice
1 1/2 T vinegar
2 T Worcestershire sauce
6 oz tomato paste
1 oz unsweetened chocolate

Add ground beef to water in a large pot and stir until the beef separates to a fine texture. Add all other ingredients and stir to blend. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer uncovered for about 3 hours. May cover the last hour if desired consistency has been reached.

Personal Notes:
I loved this Cincinnati specialty when Mary introduced me to it and went searching for a recipe (there are many!) I combined a couple to come up with this one which seems similar to what I remember. You can order the spices or sauce from www.cincinnati-to-you.com if you want to go the easy route (or just visit the Jensen's in Cincinnati!)
