New Orleans Chili Cook-Off Will Send You Into The Best Food Coma Ever

Chili keeps our bodies warm and our bellies happy and there's no better way to spend a winter day than by chowing down on boatloads of the spicy comfort food. This New Orleans chili cook-off this weekend is all you need to warm your soul and you can't miss it. Taste an endless amount of the made-from-scratch goodness for only $20.

On Jan. 12, join the chili lover's crowd at The Big Chili Chill at NOLA Brewing. Even though it's expected to be in the 60s, there isn't really any weather that doesn't permit a chili fest. 

Make your rounds to sample from all the teams and decide who should take home the trophy. As if your bellies won't be filled to the brim by the end, there will be lots of crisp craft beer from NOLA Brewing to wash it all down.

General admission tickets are only $20 online (and $30 at the door) which is a legit steal when you think about how much you'll be eating.

If you're a beer fanatic, you may want to check out the $50 VIP tickets because they get you unlimited beer from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This here is the real deal because there is a panel of local chefs and celebrity judges to crown the grand champion.

But of course, the people's opinions matter so all the taste testers' votes will go toward's the People's Choice Award.

If you think you have what it takes, try your hand in the chili competition yourself. It's $100 for team registration and the prizes include more than just bragging rights. 

For more endless food in LA, you can eat endless amounts of crawfish at this cook-off in April or check out this festival with unlimited tacos and margs
