The first-ever Victory Heights’ Chili Cook Off held on Sunday afternoon was a big success with seven chefs (plus one late scratch due to water issues) and 60 attendees.
Residents began to trickle out of their houses after a Seahawks victory to a gray but dry day (after a rainy morning) to sample both vegan and meat chilis created by our neighborhood chefs. Tables were set up along 19th Avenue NE across from Victory Heights Park with extension cords keeping crock pots full of chili warm, plus tortilla chips and tiny corn bread treats.
Ballots were available to vote for your favorite and the winner was…
…Andrew’s Chili McChiliface. Having sampled six of the seven chilis I can attest they are all winners, and we greatly appreciate the effort all our cooks put in, and all the folks who came out to partake of this perfect autumn treat. Rematch in 2022!
