There were plenty of surprises at The Bulfinch Group’s Chili Cookoff. Nearly 50 chili enthusiasts gathered in teams to create their own chili specialty before the healthy competition took over. Nine teams worked enthusiastically to create their own secret recipes before tensions rose as the judges walked around, tasting each secret recipe. Finally, the big announcement came and the top 3 finalists were declared: 3rd place – The Chili Sisters; 2nd place – The Chili Chili Bang Bangs; and 1st place – The Chili Dippers. The evening was full of laughter, camaraderie and friendly competition. A shout out to the MIT Endicott House for creating a magical evening for all chili enthusiasts.
