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.
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.
