BUSH'S Chili Cook-Off

Every chili-maker thinks their chili is the best. Whether it's a recipe that has been passed down or one created by adding your own special touches, chili-lovers take a lot of pride in making the perfect pot of chili.

One of the pleasures of making homemade chili is enjoying the aroma and letting the anticipation build while it's simmering — not only by the cook, but by the rest of the family as well. Unlike some dishes where leftovers can be viewed as wasteful or inconvenient, fans enjoy and often plan for homemade chili to serve more than one meal. It's the meal that keeps on giving!

Family-owned and operated, BUSH'S has been a part of the chili-making tradition for more than 100 years. For generations, families have served its delicious, slow-cooked beans, making it a favorite for pride-producing chili. To celebrate this shared passion for great chili, BUSH'S Beans is hosting a Chili Cook-Off to give you the chance to show-off your chili making skills with chili-lovers everywhere.

Together with The Daily Meal, BUSH'S Chili Beans is hosting a contest that will award two lucky winners (and their guests!) an amazing trip to New York to take part in a BUSH'S Chili Beans Kitchen Collaboration Demo Video. There you will be paired with BUSH'S Culinary Expert, chef Jeffrey Saad, who will work with you to create a whole new chili, using your recipe as the base. Your video will be shared with over 15.3 million monthly users and your winning chili collaboration will be added to The Daily Meal recipes section for all to enjoy!

Known for his appearance on Next Food Network Star, chef Saad became the star of his own Food Network series called The Spice Smuggler and starred on three seasons of Cooking Channel's United Tastes of America. His first cookbook, Jeffrey Saad's Global Kitchen: Recipes Without Borders is a hit, and most recently, Saad was the host of FYI Network's World Food Championship and has been featured on the PBS show, Moveable Feast (both season one and two), Chopped All-Stars (coming in second to Marcus Samuelsson), Iron Chef America Countdown, The Rachael Ray Show, Grill It! with Bobby Flay, and more. Think you have what it takes to show chef Saad your cooking chops? Entering is easy. Create your chili recipe using BUSH'S Beans and submit it here. Be sure to share your excitement with other chili fans by tagging #BushsChiliCookOff on social media. The Daily Meal editorial team will judge recipes based on creativity, simplicity, versatility, and photo quality.

Deadline is January 8, so start cooking!
