If the air downtown Sioux City smelled delicious Saturday morning, chances are it's because you like chili. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Siouxland hosted its 19th Annual Chili and Salsa Cook-off at the Tyson Events Center Parking lot. The event drew hundreds of people and contestants from all over.
Cooking started at seven in the morning on Saturday, but one contestant tells us he's been working on his chili recipe all year. It's not a secret recipe that has helped him win several awards, so much as experience
"You just practice and get little hints, my featured ingredients are Granny Smith Apples and Vermont maple syrup, and with those blend together, it just makes a really nice rich chili," Kyle Barton a contestant from Des Moines, Iowa.
The head of the Siouxland chapter of Big Brothers and Big Sister tells us the cook-off is one of the organizations biggest fundraisers.
J.J Webb won first place for chili, while first place salsa went to Julie Schoenherr with Soho Kitchen.
