The CASI U.S. National Open Chili Championship in Terlingua has lots of cooks wanting to WIN and everyone enjoying 80+ degree weather in January!


100 Chili Cooks from as far away as Florida head to the High Sierra Bar & Grill for a chance to win this excellent trophy, Wendell Rankin Hand Painted Stove, and chair for 1st Place Chili!

Great looking stove!

Think it's HOT?

A big silent auction raises lots of money for local charities.

It's time to turn in chili!

Cooks salute those who serve!
