Annual Chili Cook-Off Contest at St. Pius X Catholic Church Sponsored by the Catholic Women Council
Amazingly, the winners of the Annual Chili Cook-Off Contest have been men while Reverend Herb Essig, better known as “Father Herb” was still around St. Pius X.  When one thinks of a BallyKissAngel community named after the BBC soap opera sitcom, an English-Irish-Scottish Catholic community comes to mind…just like St. Pius X Catholic Parish in the Village of Lombard, County of DuPage, otherwise known also as “Camelot” in Illinois, U.S.A.  For three (3) years, I volunteered to cook, stir, taste, and serve Chili con Carne with the Catholic Council of Women at St. Pius X throughout the years, especially for the Annual Chili Cook-Off Contest and Catholic Women fundraiser.  CCW gathered the People of Pius X to cook off their best chili con carne recipe to make chili hot dogs and sloppy joe chili burgers, always sponsored and promoted by a solid Texan Linnea Warda, Carol, Rosa and others who slaved to make the Annual Chili Cook-Off Contest a celebrity show at the Social Center for the catholic school community.  Here’s a solid Atomic Canuck Chili Recipe for ten (10) servings from AllRecipes.com
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef

  • 1/4 cup Canadian beer
  • 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
  • hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce
Directions
