  • Chili is to be brought “ready to eat”. Please bring to The Jones Center at Hidden Falls by 3:00 pm, on Saturday, February 11th.
  • Judges will be told they should vote for the chili based on the following major considerations: good chili flavor, aftertaste, consistency, blend of spices, aroma and color.
  • Each contestant/team will be given a contestant number and will be asked to complete a card with the following information when you deliver your chili:
    • Your name(s)
    • identify if the chili is mild, medium or hot
    • any key ingredients that should be known such as meat other than ground beef or turkey, or things like peanuts that could affect those with food allergies
  • Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
  • If possible, please use a 6 quart or larger crockpot. The intent of the cookoff is fun, but also to provide a large portion of the food for Tribe Retreat.

  • Unlike professional chili cookoffs, beans are allowed.
  • Maximum of 2 people per team for entries.
  • Have fun!
