Hot enough for you? United Way Chili Cook-Off winners share secrets
Hot, spicy, peppery, tomatoey - and a few "uff dahs" thrown in for good measure.
That's a taste of what those attending the United Way of Pope and Douglas County's 13th annual Chili Cook-Off experienced Tuesday.
A total of 38 chili cook-off contestants competed for prestigious awards at the event.
Inspired by the theme, "Ole and Lena's Chili," many of the soup servers went all out with costumes and booths proudly reflecting their Norwegian heritage.
