Earlier this week a friend of mine asked me if I would enter a recipe in a chili cook-off that he was organizing. I don't know why, but I agreed to do it even though I can't make chili to save my life. I don't know why it's so difficult for me, but I feel like I can't ever get the recipe right - too many beans, too many tomatoes, noodles, no noodles, too spicy - you get the picture.
I think Andy went more for the spicy samples. (He did tell me that he liked my recipe the best - 1 vote.)
Drum roll please...........
You really want to know what place I came in?
I came in second out of four spicy entries. Not bad for making the recipe for the first time. The boy (yes boy - 7th grade boy) that won this year also won last year with the same recipe. I do have to say that I had fun and we had a nice evening out visiting with friends. On the recommendation of my oldest son, I'm planning on entering again so watch out 7th grade boy - I'll be seeing you next year.
And I would like to add a very big thank you to Pioneer Woman!!
