With temperatures about to take another icy dip, it�s a great time to warm up with some chili. Just in time, Seville Quarter�s 18th annual Great American Chili Cook-off is set for Saturday, so whether you love to cook chili or you just love to eat it, go ahead and clear your calendar. Seville Quarter�s Buck Mitchell said there still are a few competition slots open for cooking teams. Cooking begins at noon, and chefs must prepare their concoctions from scratch on site. Three-person teams compete for a $20 entry fee, with chilis judged on taste, consistency and smell. Trophies are awarded for the top three chilis, plus awards for showmanship (decoration and team entertainment) and people�s choice. Speaking of the people, they�ll be ushered in at 4 p.m. for the two-hour public tasting. The $10 entry fee will get you a chance to taste all the chili you like, and vote for your favorites. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Seville Sertoma Club. For more information, call 434-6211 or visitwww.sevillequarter.com. More chili is on the menu from 5 to 7 p.m. Jan. 31, as Escambia Christian School presents its 15th annual Cougar Chili Cook-off at the school gym, 3311 W. Moreno St. Tasters are welcome to chow down on all the chili they can eat, along with dessert, crackers and cornbread. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 12 and younger in advance; $7.50 for adults and $5 for children at the door. Soft drinks will be available at an additional charge. Tasters also will vote on the People�s Choice winner.
