    I won the 2011 Lamont Summer Sizzler Rodeo & Fair Chili Cook Off! It was a lot of competition (40+ entries), but my Chili won by a large lead (My crockpot was empty before anyone else's was even half way through). I won a trophy, some personalized oven mits, a hat, a keychain, and a nice kitchen linen set. As well as my picture in all the local papers.

    Not the most luxurious of prizes, but its a pretty good feeling to have knowing my food is that good.

    What do you think?

    Chili is fantastic. I am incredibly curious about how yours tastes. :hungry:


    Is a a sweeter chili? A spicier chili? Is it smooth or is it hearty and chunky?

    *drools*

    Thats awesome! If the other food you make is as good, you should consider starting your own restaurant.

    It is a hearty Chili with 3 meats (ground beef, hot Italian sausage, steak) and 3 different beans (Red kidney, white kidney and navy beans). As for spice it is just perfect. Not too spicy, but just enough to let you know its there.

    I would love too, but the place I live in does not have room for another restaurant (400 people and 5 restaurants). I am seriously considering the whole chef route as well (have been for years actually).

    I have pictures of lots of other foods I have created.
