Along with the awesome chili’s that everyone brought, Matt Irsfeld made his famous Enchiladas. John Boulette made his best salsa EVER, Rhonda whipped up some homemade cornbread along with some back up chili. Assistant Chief, Tim Dunn made his “delish” Mexican dip. We also served some great desserts including “Mexican brownies!” Of course Corona’s were available from Mike Rosenbush.

After some pretty difficult voting, the winners were:

1st Place – Reagan Jones

2nd Place – Brian Houlihan

3rd Place – David Adamitis

Prizes included money on their training accounts and some great fun chili gifts! Everyone was a winner, and all contestants received gifts.

Okay everyone, start working on next year!

Unfortunately due to computer glitches, the pictures of all the winners and prizes were lost in the computer. If we can recover them somehow they will be added later.
