The adventure started with some beautiful peppers and diced veggies...
Then, I got signed in and found my spot at the tables... #20.
I got such a cool apron for entering chili!
And the chili cookers started filing in...
I scoped out the competition, and told my friend he needed to leave his 4 month-old out of the competition or things would be unfair :) No winning on account of cuteness of a little baby.
There were crockpots of all kinds...
filled with delicious looking chili
The tasting began...
and I served up Lucy's Chili!
But I made sure to save some for the judges. There were over 40 chilies to choose from - wow, that must have been tough.
Frog Prince and his buddy scoped out the chili and started to taste,
while the judges began their work...
and the sign of full tummies stuffed with good chili scattered the tables.
The judges made their final decisions -
And chili #14 got the top prize
We had an excellent time at the Chili Cook-Off!
