Everyone’s a judge at Chapel Pointe’s annual Chili Cook-Off, where the aim is fun and the bragging rights are high!

On Friday, February 22, residents and staff sampled 10 chili recipes made by staff, residents, and households. The premise was simple: the chili with the most votes wins. Congratulations to the 2019 Chili Cook-Off winners:

  • 1st Place: Friendship Circle
  • 2nd Place: Family Place
    (Both households won a dinner catered by the restaurant of their choice.)
  • 3rd Place Tie: Sherry Gartzke, Haley Jumper, Barbara Malkowicz, and Tom Smith
    (Each third place winner received a $10 gift card.)


Thank you to everyone who cooked chili or came out to judge it. You made this an enjoyable event for everyone! If you couldn’t get enough of the winning chili on Friday, here’s the recipe so you can make it yourself.
