Train Wreck

BPD_09 You may call this dish Cincinnati Chili or Skyline chili,  but the family we got the recipe from called it Train Wreck.  For reasons that will soon become apparent, it just seems more fitting. 

You can make enough for 2 or feed a very large and hungry crowd.  It’s really fun to see all the different topping combinations people come up with… so go on, be adventurous! 

YOUR BASIC HOW TO MAKE A TRAIN WRECK: 

1.  Whip up your favorite chili
2.  Boil spaghetti and drain
3.  Assemble toppings while spaghetti is cooking

Serve chili on spaghetti and pile on your favorite toppings.  

Toppings may include, but are not limited to: cheese, onions, green pepper, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream, avocado, olives, Fritos, crushed tortilla chips.  If you remotely think it could go with a train wreck, chop it up and call it a topping.   Trust me. Someone will try it.

A few examples:

A purist. Cheese and only cheese.  Please.

An almost purist who added some onion to their cheese.   Just a smidge.

Lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese with sour cream on top. My, aren’t you venturesome? 

 

Have fun trying new combinations of toppings and let me know your favorites and your fails.  I’ve seen a few freaky-deaky train wrecks in my time.  The weirdest topping ever?  Coconut.  Um, ewww.

Oh, I would be in trouble with a dish like this! I can never close my burritos because I like EVERYTHING in them. Ditto for my burgers. I would have the tallest pile in the world! Looks yummy and fun, though! Thanks for sharing.
