This is sort of an unusual post for me, but I need your help.
I am going to an awesome party this weekend, and it is all about chili. In my opinion this is the greatest idea ever, and I could swear that I even wrote about a few years ago. Some neighbors of ours have an annual chili competition/party (that is usually flush with margaritas.) Everyone brings their huge pots or slow-cookers full of chili and then the whole party has sample bowls (which are the size of real bowls so that when you are done FULL doesn’t quite express it) and you sample everyone’s chili and EEK, judge it. (How great is that!!?) It makes me wish I thought of it.
People come out of the woodwork with their secret chili recipes, and this year it’s shaping up bigger than usual, which means even more competition.
Now I have never actually entered this competition. I’m too intimidated. I mean, I just feel like there is no way I am going to win, (I have tasted some AMAZING chili at this thing) and then is it embarrassing that this is what I do for a living and I won’t win? Right? Well, in an attempt to get over myself and actually have fun and participate, I am indeed going to enter the Great Chili Cook-off of 2013. But what chili to make???
Pulled Pork and Butternut Squash Chili
Please help me. Any thoughts about any of the chili recipes I have? Do you have an awesome recipe that I should try? If you do, PLEASE leave a link to it, or just post the recipe in the comments. All tips and advice are greatly appreciated!!
Thank you- and I will let you know what happens!
