Captain Larry's annual chili cook-off

Do you like chili? Do you make a great chili?  Captain Larry’s moves forward Saturday, February 7, 2015 with their 8th annual chili cook off with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Dogs XL Rescue.  If you like eating chili, there is an $8 tasting fee and if you wear a Dogs XL t-shirt, enjoy happy hour pricing during the tasting which starts at 4 p.m. 

If you want to enter your chili into the contest there are some simple rules:

  • Show up at Larry’s at 3:30 p.m. with your chili in a crockpot
  • Bring signage to promote your chili for the voting
  • The Captain will provide electric, serving bowls and utensils
  • It is open voting by everyone that pays admission ($8)
  • Judging starts at 4 p.m. – Winners announced at 7 p.m.
  • Prizes will be award for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place

Chili recipes are not limited; it looks like you can go vegan to carnivore, beans or no beans.  Just for the heck of it I searched for chili recipe at Saveur magazine’s website  - they offered up 15 irresistible recipes: Rye’s Red Chili, Triple Chocolate Beef & Bean Chili, State Fair Chili, Lady Bird Johnson’s Pedernales Chili and more.    

I’m not sure what the prizes are but on a late afternoon in February  warm chili sounds like reward enough.  A smart chili maker will invite friends and family to help booster their votes.
