I hosted our September potluck, which was our first annual chili cook-off. So many different things begin in September. And for me, one which I’m always excited about is football season. One of the most popular dishes to eat while watching your favorite team play is chili. So we decided to kick off a new tradition with a chili competition.
At our first chili cook-off, we had a good number of entries. Earlier this year, I won a chili competition. With this event, I took a step back to host it and let the spotlight shine on our members’ chilis. People in attendance were pleased with all of the entries, but ended up choosing Tonnie Orona to take home the trophy. Her chili used ground beef and a combination of pinto and kidney beans. For winning the competition, she was awarded a free membership for a year to the Weston A. Price Foundation and a copy of Sally Fallon’s book Nourishing Broth.
