Red River 2009


Hot Chili Days / Cool Mountain Nights Chili Cookoff

& New Mexico State Green Chili Championship

Saturday August 15, 2009

Red River, New Mexico


1st Place

New Mexico State Green Chili Champion

3rd Place Red, 2nd Place Showmanship

If this cookoff is not on your list of annual events - you need to mark it now!  With a setting in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains, surrounded by green trees and running brooks full of trout, Hot Chili Days and Cool Mountain Nights Chili Cookoff is not one to be missed.  Start your weekend off right, with a mountain top concert amid the trees in the cool mountain air.  And it only gets better.  The cooks’ party Friday night was fantastic.  Lot's of chili cooks from all over the country.  It's a great opportunity to sit back and catch up on old times.  The food was themed - everything had to have chilies in it.  From the Green Chile Chicken to the Jack Daniels Beans.  The cook’s party was capped off by Larry Joe Taylor in Concert

   When dawn broke on Saturday, some cooks were already setting up.  The BBQ cooks who tended their fires all night long were looking a little tired but happy.  The chili cooks kept right on with their setup and preparations.  When the public started to show up things really started to kick into high gear.

Then the music got going, the crowd gathered and things really got moving.  No shortage of a chili or BBQ hungry public here.  Larry Joe Taylor took the stage right about turn-in time.  38 cooks at this event and nobody had chili left at the end of it. 

Then it was time for announcements.  We picked up 2nd in Showmanship, 3rd in Red Chili and First Place in the New Mexico Green Chili Championship.

But the weekend was not over yet!  There was music at the cookoff site until 6 P.M.  Then an Acoustic Concert followed by Larry Joe Taylor and friends at 9 P.M.

Mark this one on your calendars for next year!  It just keeps getting better and better
