The Bell House housed the semi-annual Chili Takedown yesterday, though there were many competitors, the Peoples Choice belonged to a hamburger expert! There was a lot of spice, a lot of chili, and a good amount of cheese.
The Food Experiments' Nick Suarez returned to competition with Chili Heaven. It included complimentary Fritos.
George Motz's "Mama's Kick Ass Chili" complete with a nacho. Mr. Motz said he was inspired after judging the Lamb Takedown in October and wanted to try his hand with his mother's chili. Could a "Chili America" be formulating in his brain? I hope so.
And the winners:
Third Place-#9, Chili Heaven
Second Place-#7, Shawty Fire
First Place-#18, Hawaii Five-O
Third Place-#11, Brisk Autumn Chili
Second Place-#7, Chili Heaven
First Place-#28, Mama's Kick Ass Chili
The next takedown will be big, folks. Cookies! COOOOOOOOKIIIIIEEES! December 20th, Bell House, 5pm. Tickets available very soon.
