We enjoyed fifteen excellent chilis at CAPPE's 14th Annual ChiliFest on February 6. We appreciate all who entered and express our gratitude to the volunteer judges, contributors to the bake sale, our tortilla chefs and the general public for coming to taste chilis and vote for the People's Choice. Thank you for your continuing support of CAPPE!
