Several months ago, Copperas Cove Soup Kitchen director Patrick Richardson put out the call to see who had the best chili and three responded to the challenge.
On Saturday morning, Richardson, along with fellow chili cookers Rita Hogan, Samuel Thorpe Jr. and Ray Ashby set up their mini-kitchens in Cove Terrace shopping center parking lot and the competition was on.
The event served was a fundraiser for the soup kitchen, with the kitchen receiving part of the funds from the entry fees as well as donations from those who wanted to sample the chili after it was done.
