Puerto Vallarta’s Famous Chili Cook-Off

Our first chili cook-off was in the late 90’s and we rather stumbled across a group that was largely gringos in the patio of a lovely little hotel with wandering gardens. We purchased tickets, tasted bowls of chili, had some ice cold beer and met a few fabulous people, some of whom we remain friends with to this day. The original Chili Cook-off mutated to what is now the 6th Annual Chili Cook-off, has moved to a much larger space and is contested between several local restaurants and bars, rather than local residents who simply wanted to show off their skills. However, anyone willing to cook up five gallons (!) is welcome to participate. Simply make sure you’re signed up by contacting Donna Wong at .

Saturday, February 24th is Flag Day for Mexicans but up at El Rio BBQ Bar in Paso Ancho,  there will be another kind of celebration and it’s guaranteed to be a lot of fun. The doors open at 1 pm and voting gets under way shortly after. We haven’t been able to figure out the difference between the popular vote and professional vote but the judging will be done in a manner there will be two awards. One will be the award granted by the pros and the other will be the winner by popular vote. Facetiously speaking, we consider ourselves professional tasters, but some may differ with our opinion. Tickets are available around town in Puerto Vallarta or at the entrance to El Rio, the day of.

This is a Puerto Vallarta charity event and the entry cost of $250 pesos gets you all the chili you can eat, some of El Rio’s riblets and one drink. Long time favorite Texas Embassy Blues Band will entertain along with a great singer Mikki Prost, who’s can probably tell us intriguing stories about chili cook-offs of the past. Pearl Burrus and Vera Carp of regional fame are set to MC. El Rio will be open for those who would rather have ribs or other menus items and extra drinks can also be purchased..

Don’t miss the raffle! We’ve won some great art and services at these events and you have to love the price for a raffle ticket: a non-perishable food item for the food bank. This is a popular pastime you won’t want to miss while supporting great groups, including but not limited to DIF – New Life Home for Boys and local daycares for disabled children, plus some awesome scholarship foundations.

Que es cómo es.
