Beans On The Bank Chili Cook-OffSome of the best chili recipes in the area were whipped up today.
Some of the best chili recipes in the area were whipped up today along the bank of the Red River in East Grand Forks.
The 11th annual Beans on the Bank chili cook-off was this afternoon.
Organizations and teams from all over the Grand Forks area competed today for cash and prizes.
There were eighteen teams this year, and judges say it was a tough year to pick winners because there were a lot of good entries.
Chili sampling started at noon, and the heat may have had an affect on the results.
"There's some good chili's today, and I broke a sweat many times it's not just because I'm standing in the sun. This is still the after burn of the chili." judge Kim Holmes said.
H & R Block came in first winning 3-hundred dollars, Gissepe's second for 2-hundred and Tavern United took home third with 1-hundred dollars.
