It’s chilly chili weather. Think your recipe is the best in Winston-Salem? Let the judges decide on Sunday, Jan. 28.

Foothills is hosting its second annual Beat Chef Shane: Chili Edition Throwdown from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Tasting Room (3800 Kimwell Dr.).

The competition is open to amateur cooks who think their pot can beat the recipe served at the pub. Your creation can be mild, hot, and with or without beans. You’ll enter it in one of four categories:

  • Traditional pub chili
  • Texas chili
  • White chili
  • Vegetarian chili

Chili cooks must pay $25 to enter + sign up by Thursday, Jan. 25. You’ll need to bring your own table, heating device, and enough servings for 200 people to taste. Be sure to list possible allergies.

If you’d rather eat than cook, wristbands will be sold for $5 at the door. Taste testers can vote for the People’s Choice winner — and sample as many recipes as you can eat.
