I just got home from the First Chili Cook off​​  at Oceanside Ale Works sponsored by the Rotary Club of Vista.​
This event directly benefited the Boys and Girls Club of Vista
Patrons made a Donation and received a chili cup to try three very different chili"s.
 

First was a chicken chili vindaloo. Prepared by Tony Chahal.  A fusion of Mom's recipe from home. .. Punjab India and his wife's old family recipe from Davenport iowa.

 

 

 

Then we had Kiwi's Entry from OAW. Ghost pepper chili...two versions hot and mild.

 He had the traditional toppings of sour cream and onion.

 And non traditional  red ghost chili and Trinidad scorpion chili in case the Ghost

Chili was not hot enough

Rotarian Tim Aspell provided a blend of 7 Chili's. Starting with a vegetarian base. A bourbon barrel stout, chili bean base medley, a smoked pork butt that was smoked for 18 hours.  And a few other ingredients that if I tell you... Tim will kill me.

 

 

A great time was had by all and we hope to do it again soon


A special thanks to Rotarian John Viereck for Chairing this event.
