Bethesda United Presbyterian Church and the First Presbyterian Church of Elizabeth teamed together for their second annual Elizabeth Chili Cook-Off.
Pots of steaming chili lined Plum Street as chefs tried to win over guests with their best homemade chili recipes. There were seven contestants this year, and the community members in attendance voted for their favorites.
In the end, Carol Jean (CJ) McKenzie was named the Chili Cook-Off champion, with a turkey chili dish named as second place winner. McKenzie's prize winning chili dish will be on the menu in December at the Top O' the Mornin' Donut Shop in Elizabeth.
Got a homemade chili recipe that you are proud of and that brings on raves from friends and family? Contact either Walt Pietschmann of Bethesda United Presbyterian Church or Reverend Jim Davidson of First Presbyterian Church of Elizabeth to reserve your spot in the 2015 Elizabeth Chili Cook-Off!
