With the New Year comes a new Chili Cookoff! The Essen Haus is proud to bring back this chili event for it's 4th year. Like last year, we will be setting up in our main dining room to maximize the chili tasting fun.
COOK SPOTS ARE FULL, but there is still plenty of room for chili tasters! Mark your calendars for Feb. 18. COOK Information...
Only 15 cooks may enter for the chance to win cash prizes. Up to $200 will be awarded to the judge's top pick, with up to $100 going to the people's choice winner. A killer chili recipe and a $20 entrance fee are all it takes to participate.
Think your chili has what it takes to win? There's only one way to find out! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information about entering.

Less of a chili cook and more of a chili eater? You can still join in on the fun! Stop down from 6pm to 8pm on the 18th to sample all of the chili you can handle. Once you've tasted them all, make sure to vote for your favorite. Admittance to this family-friendly event is only $10 for adults and FREE for children ages 10 and under.
