Test your recipe in new chili cook off

The Citizens' Voice - - Local - BAR­BARA PITCAVAGE

Do you have a fa­vorite chili recipe that your fam­ily and friends love?

Here is your chance to put it to the test. There is a lit­tle over a month to test out that fab­u­lous recipe and then put it to the test.

Who would ever think that there are go many vari­a­tions of a chili recipe? A num­ber of years ago, I was house sit­ting for a friend and asked if there was more I could do for her? She left her chili recipe for me on her kitchen counter. I was rather ex­cited to see some­one else’s recipe be­side mine or my moth­ers. To my dis­may, the en­tire recipe called for “One can of kid­ney beans, one pound of ham­burger and a half a bot­tle of ketchup.” To each his own, I didn’t taste it but I made it her way.

Swoy­ersville Com­mu­nity Am­bu­lance will be host­ing their first chili cook off from 3 to 7 p.m. Satur­day, Nov. 11. Cost is $10 to regis­ter. For in­for­ma­tion or to regis­ter, call 570-2878360.
