Soup/Chili Cook-off Guidelines:

All entries must be homemade. No box mix allowed. All soups or chilis should be cooked ahead of time and brought to the event in an electric crock pot.

Crock pots should be brought to Spirit River Community Center starting at 3:30 p.m. the day of the event. Tasting begins at 4 p.m.

Bring enough soup/chili to give a very small sample to approximately 200 people. Cooks generally bring four to five quarts and must use their own crock pot and serving utensils.

Each sample will be about two to three tablespoons. Spirit River Community Church will provide cups and spoons for tasters. Bring your own personal serving ladle or spoon.
