Do you have the right ingredients to win the title of Chili Meister? Findlay Market is hosting its 16th-annual Chili Cook-Off to crown a new king or queen of Cincinnati chili.
In addition to the long-running chili contest, the market will also be naming a “Hot Sauce Boss.” Each chili competitor will bring four quarts of chili (in a heated slow cooker) for judges to sample, and Hot Sauce Boss entrants will bring 10 ounces of hot sauce in a squeeze bottle; both will have to source at least one ingredient from a Findlay Market vendor.
If you want to taste the creations of these amateur chefs, free chili samples will be available at 1 p.m. and hot sauce samples at 3:30 p.m. (while supplies last). Tickets for chili-themed bites from Findlay Market vendors will also be for sale starting at $2 per ticket, with beer for purchase from Christian Moerlein.
10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26. Findlay Market, 1801 Race St., Over-the-Rhine, findlaymarket.org.
