Top 5 Secrets For Award Winning Chili!!!!!

by Cindy Rippe

Baby, it's cold outside!!! What a better way to warm up and do something for a great cause!  The Sioux Falls Roller Dollz are hosting the 1st Annual Chili Fest  this Saturday, January 25 at The Coliseum. From 11 to 2pm!!!

I have entered my award winning chili in this competition and I am SOOOO excited! Ok, so, let me talk smack here.... I am not afraid to put my chili up against  ANYONE! I have won several awards for my chili, and let me tell you, it's the perfect blend of peppers and plenty of seasonings...not too hot, but just the right amount of heat. 

Here's  5 secrets  for award winning chili:

1. Good quality beef. Buy the best you can find, ground round. (add tri-tip or brisket is good!)

2. Spicy V8 juice- I don't know, it just adds a little extra zing to it!

3. Apple cider vinegar--just a tad!

4. Hungarian Paprika 

5. Go easy on the beans....they are a cheap filler and can overpower  the chili. 

I hope that you will come out Saturday and try my chili! It's going to be a fun day of competition to help out The Sioux Falls Roller Dollz!
