Lonestar Vegetarian Chili Cookoff 2009


Dewey and I won second place at the Lonestar Vegetarian Chili Cookoff this year! Thank you to everyone who came out to support us.

It was a great experience. We were at the cookoff grounds at 7:30 AM. We shared our tent with a group from Fort Worth and another group from here in Austin. By 11:30 AM, we had cooked five gallons of chili over a propane stove. And by 3:30 PM we had served all five gallons, one half-ounce ladle at a time.

Our winning chili recipe is here.

We are so proud of you both. Congratulations! I know this was a lot of work, but sounds like it was a lot of fun as well. I'll try to make this recipe soon, it's cold here in Colorado, perfect time for chili.

Cooling off Austin is hard work! It's been in the 70s all week.
