Fighting fire with fire: envisionit’s 3rd annual chili cook off

 

Our third annual chili cook off brought out some fiery competition. Despite the theme, “Netflix and Chili,” the envisionit office temporarily morphed into a culinary battlefield. Marketers-­turned-chefs wielded their ladles while the judges shielded themselves with bottles of antacid at hand.

In the end, only one could emerge victorious: Bobby Lorenz defeated all odds to become envisionit’s chili king with his “Bobby’s Chili” amassing the most Tum tablet votes. His chili had a signature taste that featured pork, beef and chicken. However, it was likely the bourbon and cotija cheese topping that set it apart.

Coming in at a close second was Laura Grace and her chili brisket tacos, made with over 50 ingredients.

But the spoils went to Lakeview Pantry, which received the non­-perishable donations that were collected by all brave enough to taste-test the spread of chili.

Our stomachs look forward to what next year’s cook off will bring.
