Chili contest to chase away the chills

We’re heating things up at Abbott’s Glen with a Chili contest

It’s January in Vermont & that meals it’s chilly, so Abbott’s Glen is hosting a chili cook-off to heat things up! Can we chase away the chills with a big ole bubbly pot of chili? You bet we can. Each January, we encourage our naturist guests to cook up their best pot of chili to bring to our contest. Our guests will line up their chili’s in the dining room. Then they are numbered. Everyone will have an opportunity to taste each chili & place their vote for the BEST. Every year we are always surprised by the amazing variations in meats, sauces, vegetables , beans & spices.
