The great chili cook-off of 2018!
Wolfgang's workplace has held an annual chili cook-off for the past several years, and Friday was the day for 2018. The thought of a bunch of engineers cooking chili doesn't naturally inspire high expectations, but apparently the results are quite tasty. Winner gets a big sombrero.
And darn if Wolfgang didn't almost win that sombrero!
He got first prize in the "unique" category and second place overall. Got a trophy and medal, even. Lookie!
He dubbed his dish "Aloha Sweet Chili". *Spoiler Alert* The secret ingredient is pineapple. Who knew??
He'd actually made it for us a couple of weeks prior to the cook-off, and we got to be the test kitchen. The only thing he changed for the cook-off was, he let it simmer longer - thus the 10 pm cookfest.
I agree, it's very tasty and worthy of the prizes.
I'd show a pic of the chili too...
but we ate it.
