A good bowl of chili is true work of culinary art. Achieving the right consistency and the right balance in taste among the different ingredients takes a certain skill and Houston’s Onion Creek Coffee House has an event scheduled this weekend that will showcase some of the best chili Houstonians can create.

- The chili must be cooked from scratch
- The chili must already be prepared and ready to eat
- The chili can ONLY be reheated at Onion Creek- no other preparation is allowed

- Pint Glass
- A pint of beer
- Swag Bag
- Chili to sample
