Vallarta charities host Chili Cookoff

The sixth annual Charity Chili Cook-Off is set for Saturday, February 24, 1-5 p.m. at El Rio BBQ Bar in Paso Ancho in Puerto Vallarta.

pg28bThe event is an all-you-can-eat chili feast, featuring recipes from some 16 popular Puerto Vallara area bar/restaurants and sponsors — all competing for trophies and bragging rights. There are two categories of chili judging — one by popular vote from attendees and one by professional judges. Space is still available for a couple of more entries. Anyone interested in participating by making their own five gallons of chili, please contact Donna Wong at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Cost of the entry is 250 pesos per person. In addition to all that chili, an order of El Rio’s famous smoked riblets and an agua fresca are also included. Regular El Rio menu items will also be available for purchase. Entertainment will be provided by several cookin’ musical groups.

Two bottles of PATRON Tequila will be raffled off. Bring a non-perishable food item for one free raffle ticket (one ticket per donated item). Food will be distributed to those in need.

All proceeds from the cook-off go to local charities and the community: Estancia Sabrina Projecto Busca un Amigo A.C. (Day care center for children with disabilities); DIF New Life Home for Boys (young boys who have had a troubled past); scholarships to play Torpedos American Football, and the Jay Sadler Project Community Relations (COMREL) program, which provides necessary resources to improve various charities and non-profit institutions in the Banderas Bay area.
