Chili cook-off

I am so excited. Our culinary school which is located next door to my work has invited the staff to participate in a Chili Cook-off on Friday, Feb 21st. I am super excited and yet a little scared. I have never cooked chili from scratch and definitely not ever in a chef's kitchen. I know my friend Ashley will be by my side so that is reassuring but I am still a little nervous. We are also cooking against the chef students, I am not expecting to win by any means, I just don't want to embarrass myself either.

Do you have any good red chili recipes you would like to share? Or any good tips?

We can use can tomatoes but nothing with a premade chili seasoning. They will supply me with the ingredients but I will have to do everything myself. Did I mention I have to make a gallon of chili. Oh goodness.....what did I sign myself up for?

So wish me good luck and send those recipes my way. I will be sure to take pictures and document my day for a follow up post.
