The garden center I have been going to this year started roasting green chili this year and to go along with that idea they had a Green Chili Cookoff today. It took me a while to decide to enter, but I thought it would be a fun thing to do, so I made some chili to see if I could get a good taste and entered. It took me a little researching to see what they have in different recipes, but I mainly stuck with what I have used before. I did add a little more of different spices/herbs so it wouldn't just be bland and hot and I like what I came up with. I also enjoyed tasting the other chili there. I hadn't ever tried doing anything like that before, but it was fun to do and it was a friendly contest, not a big deal one (though the winner did get a nice prize). Votes were mainly from friends and family and I did manage to get a friend to come up. I ended up in 3rd place, just out of the money.
Here are a few of the people at the tasting:
