2005 - No Name Chili Bowl

2005 proved that smaller can indeed be just as good, or even better. We had a few less folks, and half the entries from last year, but the consensus was that the quality was way up once again. This year also introduced several firsts:

  • We had dual entries from one family - Oslynn and Jamie couldn't decide on one recipe so we got to enjoy both of their choices!
  • We had a teen team entry from Toby and Eben, which took home the prize for Most Blistering Heat (despite almost not having an entry due to a mid afternoon crockpot disaster.)
  • We were treated to Dale's awesome guacamole recipe...only downside was that there wasn't an entire crockpot of this stuff!
  • We awarded a new prize for the chili that recieves the most overall votes, across all categories. Theoretically, this could go to an entry that doesn't win in any individual category, but it didn't play out that way this year.
