I finally took the plunge and broke my chili competition cherry. Not only that, this was my first time making chili that didn’t magically appear when I opened a can labeled “Hormel.” Or, I should say, “chile” since I made a chile verde instead of the red stuff. Bartels Harley-Davidson held their annual chili cook-off in Marina del Rey yesterday and I thought I’d buck tradition with a little mean green.
This year, the largest motorcycle rally in the world kicks off early with a chili contest at the Buffalo Chip Sturgis. If you’re riding out to the Sturgis motorcycle rally a little early this year and you want a little fire in your belly before the crowd hits max capacity, it’ll be a great chance for you to do just that. Especially if, like me, you love the idea of motorcycles and buffalo chili.
