Reigning chili champs serve up another victory

A bet on Black Jack chili secures top prize at the 18th annual Cloverdale Chili Cook-off.

Winners of the 18th annual Cloverdale Chili Cook-off were chosen by the public.

A tasty batch of “Black Jack” Chili helped secure the top prize for defending champions Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino at the 18th annual Cloverdale Chili Cook-off.

Also for the second year in a row, second place went to Rusty’s Pub – always a crowd favourite at the competition – for its 2015 entry, Release the Kraken chili.

Held annually at the start of the May long weekend during the Cloverdale Rodeo, the cook-off involves teams from local businesses and organizations serving up homemade chili.

The public is invited to sample all the entries and vote for their favourite.

One of Cloverdale’s newest businesses, The Chop Shop, claimed third place with Clearly Chopped Chili at the May 15 cook-off at Clover Square Village. It’s presented by the Cloverdale BIA and the Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce, and sponsors.
