Here at the museum, we have a little bit of a competitive streak. So, this week’s first annual Buffalo Grove Park District staff chili cook-off gave us a chance to get juices flowing! Nine departments competed for bragging rights and this magnificent trophy. The museum made a great effort with a hearty, spicy chili with tomatoes, beans, onions and our secret ingredient: chorizo. Although we tried to vote early and vote often (in the time honored Chicago tradition), we ultimately lost the contest to a tie between a delicious venison Chili and a scrumptious concoction with corn and beans. Well, there is always next year. Do you have any chili secrets to share?
