And the winner is….Miss LAUREN! Yes, Miss Lauren took the Chili Cook-Off prize for 2017 with her Mexican Taco Chili. No longer is Miss Jeanie the queen – but then, she didn’t enter a recipe this year, either. The birth of the newest grandbaby hampered her culinary time. The second place winner was a tie: Fr. Philip with his Kenyan Chicken Chili, and Miss Dondra, with her Crown Me With Many Crowns Chili. Thanks to all eight who entered the contest. We’ll wait anxiously for next year to see who will wear the crown! To see photos of this chili-lishious fellowship, click here.
