7th Annual Chili Contest – Now Accepting Entries!

2016 Chili Contest Collage

Yep, it’s still hot as blazes – even in Michigan. I’m both torn over the summer winding down and completely thrilled for cooler temperatures, college football, beer, and of course, CHILI!

It’s hard to believe this will be my SEVENTH ANNUAL chili contest – but it is! I’ll feature each recipe as a blog post to share with all the other chili lovers of the world, giving credit to you (or the source of your recipe – so if you have a blog, include the URL in your email, please!)

What’s in it for you? Bragging Rights! And the chance to win, of course…to the tune of $200 for 1st place in the form of a Visa giftcard! Your winning recipe is worth some serious cash!

I will accept the first 6 recipe submissions that will be made throughout the college football season. The winner will be announced in early January, when the season wraps up (Go Illini!).

Send me some chili!! [email protected]

For now, be sure to check out the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th5th, and 6th annual chili entries and winners!

Be well,


Share With Your Friends!

    Does the chili recipe have to be ours, or just one we’ve made?

    I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since your first one! Just think of how different your life is since then – weren’t you guys still in Ohio 7 years ago?!

      Tulsa, actually. Then Ohio. Then Michigan. Bananas! But you’re so right – LOTS of changes! And for you! ๐Ÿ™‚
