Calling all chili and salsa cooks!

Chilimania plays host to the Wisconsin State Championship CASI-Sanctioned Cook-off (Chili Appreciation Society International) Cook-Off!

The CASI cook-off is open to any cooker as long as he/she prepares “chili-grind” chili and his/her chili preparation meets CASI regulations (see all cook-off rules).

In addition to the CASI Wisconsin State Championship, Chilimania will host their “TRADITIONAL,” anything goes, contest.

Chili chefs may enter the CASI contest, the TRADITIONAL contest or both, along with the SALSA contest, all for one entry fee.
