Our 1st Annual NCC Chili Competition will be a friendly cookoff among club members for the ultimate bragging rights of who can make the best chili. Registration is required for all attendees and the location address (Owings Mills, MD area) will be sent out a few days prior to event. Competition will be held from 11am to 2pm.

There will be two (2) main categories:

Traditional Red - classic red chili sauce, with or without meat; no beans
Homestyle - anything goes! red/green/white chili, with or without meat, beans are optional

We have several great prizes lined up for those top recipes based on a judged points system and the following criteria:

Appearance - Is it visually appealing? Is it bright/colorful or dull/bland? too oily?
Smell - How appetizing is the aroma? Does it make you want to dig right in?
Consistency - Meat-to-sauce ratio; Is it too mushy/too thin/too thick? Is the meat tender?
Flavor - How flavorful is it from the first bite to any aftertaste? Too spicy/not enough spice? Spices blend well together/overpowering?
Creativity - Did the chef use a wide variety of ingredients? How creative did the chef get in recipe creation? Did he/she think outside the box?

Each chili chef will be required to complete the official competition template which will include the following:

Name of chili - names should be clever and BMW related, of course!
Heat level/spiciness - On a scale of 1: mild to 10: extremely spicy
A listing of ALL ingredients - to avoid any allergies

NCC will provide a wide variety of condiments such as shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped onions, hot sauces, paperware, utensils, drinks, etc. However, these items will NOT be used during the judging competition. Good luck!

This event offers online registration and payment through MotorsportReg.com.

If making chili is not your thing, then you can still join us as a 'taster'. Who knows, we may need your 'tasting' skills as a judge!
