Calling All Cooks: Meadowlands Racetrack Chili Cookoff!


This sponsored article is brought to you by Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment.

In its all-new facility, the Meadowlands Racetrack will host its inaugural Homestyle Chili Cookoff on Saturday, January 30, with a grand prize of $1,000 up for grabs! In addition to the $1,000 grand prize, the winner earns a spot in the International Chili Society’s World’s Championship Chili Cookoff in Reno, Nevada.

Homestyle chili is defined by the International Chili Society as the cook’s favorite combination of ingredients resulting in a dish seasoned with chili peppers and spices. Contestants must cook their chili on site, between 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Judging will take place immediately afterward.

“This event is another opportunity for us to create a unique event to expose new fans to our beautiful facility,” said Meadowlands general manager and CEO, Jason M. Settlemoir. “Plus, who wouldn’t love to cook and sample chili on a cold winter day?”

Both amateur and professional cooks, are invited to register by visiting the sign-up page. There is a $20 registration fee, due prior to the start of cooking. (This covers the membership fee to the International Chili Society.)

In addition to the chili competition, a side contest for homemade salsa will take place, with a $500 first prize.
