Rotary challenges restaurants to chili cook off

Steaming samples of chili will be featured at the Rotary Club of Sedona’s Great Sedona Chili Cook Off, a special event at Tlaquepaque’s Cinco de Mayo Fiesta May 5. This year the Cook Off will have more space for restaurant booths and a beer garden in the Calle de Independencia at Tlaquepaque. Last year hundreds of people enjoyed tasting a variety of spicy chili.

Verde valley restaurants and their chefs are invited to compete in the second annual Great Sedona Chili Cook Off. The working definition of a competitive chili is: any kind of spicy, stew-like dish cooked with chili peppers, meat (optional) and/or beans (optional). Various other spices and ingredients may be added with the exception of rice or pasta.

This year the Rotary Club of Sedona is adding a new “Best Decorated Booth” Award. The club will again sponsor a “People’s Choice” Award.

based on the individual votes of Chili Cook Off attendees plus Rotary will award a perpetual hand forged metal Chili trophy for the “Judges Award” determined by a distinguished panel of judges, based on chili flavor, texture, aroma and appearance.

Proceeds will benefit the End Polio Now Project and other Rotary charities.
