Annual Chili Cook-Off 2019

On June 5, we gathered at the cozy inner courtyard of Texas Honky Tonk & Cantina (last year’s Best Chili winner) to enjoy the fantastic weather, delicious chili, cold beer and ice-cold Margaritas, refreshing soft drinks and, of course, the amazing company of fellow members!

This time, we had 5 teams competing with their special recipes for the Best Chili 2019 and People’s Choice titles. All our competing teams made a huge effort and put up amazing stations! In the end of the day, it was team Hilton and their chili Beef Flavored Chili Stew that was selected by the Jury team to win the Best Chili 2019 title!! Our participating tasters voted for team Scandinavian Chili and their CCC (Chili Con Carne) dish to receive the People’s Choice title!
