The Chili Capitol of Illinois, Taylorville, hosting a pair of chili cook-offs this weekend.
Chillifest Committee Chili Chair Tom Calvert says the Lincoln Prairie Trail Regional cook-off is Saturday, while the Aldo Klinghammer Memorial Chili Shuffle is Sunday – both at the Palomino Club.
Calvert loves the family environment of chili cook-offs.
Both cook-offs still need volunteers to test the chili.
Chili cooks listen up – Calvert is a world champion and has a word of advice.
