Do you like competitions? Do you love spicy food? On Wednesday, November 6th, there was a chance for OC students to come to try all kinds of spicy food in the form of chili. Hosted by the military and veterans program located in Building 11, the event started at 11:30 AM and ended at 1:30 PM.
A Chili Cook-Off is a social event, similar to a barbecue, in which competitors prepare their own particular recipe for chili and submit it for taste testing.
There were 10 contestants, each with their own chili recipe, 70 tasters and 5 guest judges. Each taster got to vote for which chili they thought was best. The chili that got the most votes was the Mexican Chili made by America Morgan (entry # 8), and the runner up was the American Pride Chili made by Chad Dohlenburg (entry # 10). The judge’s top choice award was given to the Island Style Chili created by Odessa Kawaii (entry # 4).
