Chili Challenge at Northern Michigan University

Amateur and professional cooks got to try their hand at a chili cook off this afternoon at Northern Michigan University.

The hospitality management memorial Chili Challenge is a way for students and the community to come together for some chili, some fun, and to remember those who are no longer with us.

And this year, there is quite the variety of chili.

There are two sets of judges for the Chili Challenge, one for the professionals and one for the amateurs.

The chili’s are scored from just okay – to outstanding.

And the way the different flavors are scored is quite unique.

This is the 15th year for the chili challenge at NMU.
