My first chili fest Sun, 02/25/07 3:42 PM (permalink)
Victory Brewery in Downingtown, PA held their fifth chili cook-off today and it was my first. Over 25 chili's in "open" competition, washed down with Hop Devil for my wife and Storm King Stout for me. Interesting to note that after a few, I skipped over ground beef and kidney bean versions (that I grew up with) and hunted down shredded or cubed beef, preferably without beans ala Texas style. But some standouts included a turkey mole and one with a dollop of chile pepper ice cream that was surprisingly wonderful. Another used a Jamaican jerk seasoning that was very flavorful. We go to a few beer fests but this is a new (for us) and good combination. Great beer and hot chile took the edge off the fact it is snowing outside.
