This past Saturday Pat & his family hosted their annual chili cook off and since competitive cooking is completely foreign to me I tend to just wing it.
This year I did about 20 minuets of interweb research and came to the conclusion most all chili has the same base ingredients. So I went with the original no bean cowboy style, bought as much fresh ingredients as possible, Frances was my sous-chef and covered all the chopping duties as I mixed & wrote it all down, somehow out of 21 entrees we won the Judges Choice.
If you give it a go let me know how it works out.
Big thanks to Pat & Nancy for a great time.
