Contestants stir-up chili at annual cook-off

Posted: Updated:
Several chefs mixed and stirred chili this weekend, filling the air with a tasty aroma during the annual Chili Cook-off in Gering.

There were five divisions for participants to cook in, including green chili and the dry beans cook-off categories.

Bob Ledet of Cheyenne has participated in the contest for 27 years and says he has won a few medals for his Creole-style chili.

Mike Lienemann with the American Legion in Scottsbluff placed first last year for his green chili.

He says he and his team chose the same location as last time hoping to win for a second year in a row.

"We kind of like this same spot because they just come right in here so yea, we're in the same spot we're in last year and hopefully it'll be the same result," he said.

Trophies for first through third place will be awarded to contestants as well as ribbons for fourth through tenth places.
