The Great Snooth Chili Cook-Off

A hearty competition just in time for tailgate season

The Great Snooth Chili Cook-Off A few months back, we received an adorable little box from Andrews McMeel Publishing. Expecting a book, we opened it up and were pleasantly surprised by a chili cook-off kit called "Chili Cook-Off in a Box," how creative!

Knowing just how to use it, we tucked the kit away into the What's Cookin' cookbook shelves to save for just the right time. We waited for months until the proper time to break it back out came upon us: tailgating season.

So, with October 1 behind us and both college and professional football season in full swing, we stepped up to the challenge and hosted our own Snooth team chili cook-off. All with the help of our trusty kit from Gina Hyams.

We tested many recipes and used the nifty chili cook-off box scoring cards as a way to judge all that was entered. Chili dishes were rated on aroma, color, texture and flavor. While all were great, we could only have one winner.

Read on for the winning recipes, and check out Gina Hyams's "Chili Cook-Off In a Box" ($14.99) for your next fall football party!

*Note: We did allow bean chili in this competition, as will the World Chili Cook-Off, as of this year.

    Hmm ... Looks like all the winners were connected with Snooth one way or another.
    How many entrants were there? Did anybody win anything except for the Snooth people?

    Hi Lamebear,

    Yes, this was a Snooth company cook-off, so only those in the company participated and could be winners. We had a lot of fun coming together to feast on chili and blind vote for our favorites of the bunch, and we encourage you to try some of our recipes and then host your own chili cook-off! A lot of fun during this autumn season!
