Texas Open Chili Championship

Texas-size salute to the official state dish will be served up at the Texas Open Chili Cookoff, Saturday and Sunday, February 23 and 24, 2019, at Traders Village San Antonio.

This event is held under the auspices of the Chili Appreciation Society International (CASI). Chili cooks from all across Texas will join the many “chiliheads” (as they affectionately call themselves) to vie for the top honors in Chili and Junior Chili. On Saturday the 23rd, CASI Chili Entry Fee is $35 and Junior Chili Competition is $10. On Sunday Feb 24th, it’s the Day After CCO and Entry Fee is $20 Chili Grind Only.

DON’T FORGET OUR JR CATEGORY:
Great Prizes for our JR Category winners!!!
Ages 7-12
Ages 13-17
(Parents are not allowed, but a C.A.S.I. official will be there for assistance should they need any)

Head to the BBQ under the Brown Pavilion for some great Frito Pie cooked by our own team.  While your there, grab a nice cold beer.

The cooks have a great time but the main reason for having the chili cookoff is to raise funds for the Texas Honor Ride who provide support and funds to the Wounded Warrior & Family Support Center at BAMC.  Join us at Traders Village and support this great program.
