Any Way You Want It

…that’s the way you should cook it.

The 2nd Annual No Holds Barred Chili Cook-Off is coming!  The deadline to enter your team in the competition is October 1st, and the actual cook-off will take place on October 11th.  The winning team will win not only the respect and awe of a crowd of chili-hounds, but also a pretty good amount of cold, hard cash.

To find out more about the competition, check out their website at or today’s write-up in Houstonist.  No Holds Barred is a very different kind of chili cook-off, and one that you shouldn’t miss!

In the interest of full disclosure, it should be said that yours truly is VERY excited to be one of the judges this year.  I can’t wait — seriously, I’m counting the days — to taste all the different, random, inventive, bizarre chilis that I hope await us in October.  Hopefully some of you fine readers will enter your very own chili in the contest!

  1. It wouldn’t be very fair of me to say what I do or don’t prefer in my chili, now would it?

    But I actually don’t have to worry about preserving the interests of fairness with my answer. The truth is that I don’t have a beans preference either way. It can be argued that “true Texas chili” does NOT have beans. But that certainly doesn’t mean that chili WITH beans isn’t good, too. 🙂

  2. “Do you like beans in your chili?”

    What is this Cincinatti?

    Chili is meat, beer, broth and seasoning.

    That. is. all.

    (Just don’t tell my wife I said that.) 😀
