The market is currently taking entries for the cook-off and needs a minimum of 10 entries in order to take place. If you make more than one phenomenal chili recipe, don't worry: you can enter more than one recipe. The chili will be judged blind by the official panel on the following six criteria: texture, flavor, consistency, spice and taste, aroma and color.

The grand prize is $100 cash and bragging rights, 2nd place gets $50 and third gets $25. Whether you place or not, it's a great way to share your homemade masterpiece with the community. All entry forms and payment must be completed by Wednesday, February 9th. Read the rest of the rules and regulations here.
