It's cold outside, but what better than to celebrate National Chili Day today? This national celebration, always on the 4th Thursday of February.

The Chili Appreciation Society International (CASI) celebrates chili with over 500 CASI charity sanctioned events nationwide each year.

The Concho Valley Chili Pod is the local CASI representative, and their next cookoff will be at the Water Valley Park on March 21st & 22nd to help St Jude Children's Research Hospital. You're invited to come out, judge some great chili, and learn more about chili!

You can visit www.casichili.net for recipes from the last few Terlingua International Chili Champions and learn more about the wonderful world of chili!

We're proud to salute all those in the chili world who do so much for so many charities
across this great country.

It's cold, so fire up a bowl of chili tonight!
