On September 23, 2014, Quorum held its 7th Annual Chili Cook Off. With these folks you never know what you’re going to get. But, what I do know is that this competition is HOT! When you have ingredients like TX Whiskey, you know it’s gonna to be good.
Competition this year was fierce between Kathryn Torrez and Greg Richardson – they went head to head with their chili entries (two each) and each had a salsa entry as well. There were eight (8) total chili entries and four (4) salsa entries. (This was our 3rd Annual Salsa competition.)
In the end, Kathryn Torrez took the overall Grand Prize - 1st place Chili, and Greg took 1st place in the Salsa event. Greg’s chili also took the People’s Choice award. Way to go, you two.
Our guest judges this year included Tanya Morris with MFD Business Solutions, Robert Johnson with the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum, Jim Austin of Jim Austin Online, Frank Shiels with Frost Bank, and Rosieleetta Reed who is the President of the Texas Buffalo Soldier Chapter. Employee Matthew Farrington was the resident judge and tie-breaker.
