Chili Cook-OffFox Valley Chili Lovers Take Notice!

ESTHER is having a chili cook-off! It will be held in conjunction with the ADI Winter Market at City Center Mall on Saturday, December 17, 2016. We are currently enlisting up to ten teams ($20 entry fee), which will be judged by attendees who will each get a spoon to taste the team entries ($5 for the spoon) and a ballot to vote for their favorite chili. The team with the most votes will win a $100 gift certificate to Antojitos Mexicanos!

  • Saturday, December 17 - 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • City Center Plaza, Appleton (during Winter Farm Market)
  • $20 team entry fee
  • Grand Prize - $100 gift certificate from Antojitos Mexicanos
  • $5 per person admission buys you a spoon, a cup, and a napkin—and the chance to taste ten outstanding styles of chili

All of the expenses are being contributed by the Appleton law firm of Peterson, Berk & Cross and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, so all of the proceeds will go to support the good work of ESTHER.
