Every year here at Threadless HQ we have a Chili Cook-off disguised as a Super Bowl party. This year, we're giving you guys a chance to get in on the hot chili action!
Just submit your rockin' chili recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 am CT on February 5th (one entry per person). We'll choose one meat and one vegetarian recipe and announce the winners at 5pm CT on February 5th. If your recipe is chosen, you'll win a $50 Threadless gift certificate. Plus, we'll make your chili on Super Bowl Sunday (February 7th) and enter it into our office contest for another chance to win. Then, if your chili is chosen as the overall winner of either the meat or veggie category on Super Bowl Sunday, you'll win a $100 chefsresource.com gift certificate too!
Recipes will be judged on:
* Creativity What makes your chili awesome? Secret ingredients? A clever name? A great story from grannie?
* Football/Threadless relevance What would make the community vote it a 5$? Or maybe the recipe is a jambalaya-esque ode to the Big Easy? Hint: Don't be afraid to describe the way your chili should be presented.
* Craveability Does this recipe sound like something we just haveta eat? Like. Right. Now? And of course, your chili recipe must be edible and contain no super exotic ingredients. (ie. giraffe bones, turtle doves, durian, etc.)
Let's get cookin'!
The winners: Meat recipe: Eric Z.'s "Brutal Beatdown Chili" Veggie recipe: Liz P.'s "Super Awesome Fake Out Beer Chili w/ Cumin Sour Cream"
Congratulations! The meat chili came in 2nd place and the veggie chili came in 3rd place on Super Sunday!
