Chili Cookoff

The recent bouts of cold weather have taken a devastating toll on our roads, psyche and soul. We may not get as much snow as other parts of the country but as every resident Texan knows, just a few inches of snowfall means that certain doom is soon to follow. Few things can wipe away the sting of seasonal weather patterns better than a nice, big, steaming hot bowl of homemade Texas chili. It doesn’t just warm up you up on a bitter, cold day. It has natural healing agents that make you forget you’re experiencing the two weeks out of the year that Dallas actually has true winter weather. You can get your fill of this bowl based miracle thanks to the Dallas Fraternal Order of Eagles 3108’s Chili Cook-Off featuring a ton of homemade entries of this classic Texas dish. All of the proceeds from the chili cook-off will benefit the Denise Landers Cancer Fund. The Dallas Fraternal Order of Eagles 3108 is located at 8500 Arturo Dr. in Dallas. Entries at $20 per chili entry and $5 for a beans entry or a “Junior Chili” entry. More information at
