Back by popular demand! Our 5th Annual NCC Chili Cookoff will be another friendly competition among club members for the ultimate bragging rights for the Chili King/Queen! Registration is required for all attendees and the competition will be held from 11am to 2pm @ Collectors Car Corral*.

There will be two (2) main categories (Chili Chefs must only choose 1 category):

  1. Traditional Red - classic red chili sauce, with or without meat; NO beans, pasta, or other filler allowed
  2. Homestyle - anything goes! red/green/white/vegetarian chili, with or without meat, beans/pasta/filler are optional

We have several great prizes lined up for those top recipes based on a judged points system with the following criteria:

  1. Appearance - Visually appetizing? Bright/colorful or dull/bland? Too oily?
  2. Smell - How good does it smell? Does it make you want to dig right in?
  3. Consistency - Meat-to-sauce ratio; Is it too mushy/too thin/too thick? Is the meat tender?
  4. Flavor - How flavorful is it from the first bite to aftertaste? Too spicy/not enough spice? Spices blend well together/overpowering?
  5. Creativity - Did the chef use a wide variety of ingredients? How creative did the chef get in recipe? Did he/she think outside the box?

Each Chili Chef will be required to complete the official competition template which will include the following:

  1. Name of chili - names should be clever and BMW or car related, of course!
  2. Heat level/spiciness - On a scale of 1 (mayo is too spicy!) to 10 (burn a hole in my ass please!)
  3. A listing of ALL ingredients - to avoid any allergies among judges/tasters; quantities do not need to be revealed

NCC will provide a wide variety of condiments such as shredded cheese, sour cream, hot sauces, paperware, utensils, drinks, desserts, etc. However, these items will NOT be used during the judging competition. Good luck!

If making chili is not your thing, then you can still join us as a 'judge' to determine the ultimate Chili Chef!
