Chili Cook-Off a success
Scott Hunt of Bowling Green is going on to the World Chili Cook-off with his version of chili verde.
A new event this year at the Pike County Fair was the Show-Me Missouri State Chili Cook-off. The weather for the Saturday event was mild (unlike some of the chili), and chili chefs from across Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arkansas came to let brave souls sample their wares. There were 21 different types of red chili, 14 green, 12 salsas, and 15 in the Anything Goes class.
See the results on page 2 of the Bowling Green Times.
