Annual chili cookoff Menu

Every fall we round up all our friends for a chili-cookoff. Everyone brings their recipe and a pot of chili. We award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize ( usually a chili related prize). I add the side dishes and the beverages. It is so much fun to try everyones recipe and vote on our favorites. I hope you make a chili cookoff an annual affair at your home!
