For those of you from Ohio, the idea of putting Chili on spaghetti noodles is, well, normal. I didn't know about ordinary chili until I was in high school, as Cincinnati style chili was a staple growing up. Leftovers the next day were always coney dogs. When we travel, I always bring Skyline Chili spice packets back with me to make at home. However, here in Amman, there are two chains, Chili House and Chili Ways, that are much like Goldstar Chili and Skyline in Ohio. Except I don't think they have oyster crackers.
This Wikipedia article gives some info, the most important bit is that four Jordanian brothers started Goldstar in Cinci in 1965. Chili House was started in Amman in 1985. Obviously, it's all in the family.
Skyline to Goldstar, started by Greek immigrants in Cinci in 1949. I even had a cook-off with a friend here in Amman a couple years ago. He was from Cinci and preferred Goldstar. Needless to say, his favorite place to eat in Amman was Chili House.
So, Mommabean, you are invited to our home for chili. Ahlen wa sahlen.
