Dallas Kosher Chili Cook-Off

27th Annual

Dallas Kosher Chili Cook-Off

March 15, 2020


Food… Fun… Fellowship…

The Dallas Kosher Chili Cook-off—now in its 27th year—brings together the diverse Jewish communities of North Texas for a day of kosher fun. Host by Tiferet Israel, the Dallas Kosher Chili Cook-off brings together the entire Dallas/Fort Worth Jewish community—secular, religious, affiliated and non-affiliated.

More than 40 teams compete for bragging rights of making the best kosher chili in the Metroplex. Chili types include both beef and veggie. Some 4,500 people attend for a day of food, fun and fellowship—all under the same festive tents. Proceeds are shared with other not-for-profit agencies in the Metroplex.

The cook-off offers you:

  • An art show—new this year—presented by Texas Jewish Arts Association.
  • Dozens of teams competing for top honors for the best beef and veggie chilis.
  • Rides and games for children on the mini-midway.
  • Live music.
  • Vendors showing off their products and services.
  • Kosher supervision by Dallas Va’ad.
  • Double-blind judging by food service professionals and celebrities from North Texas.
  • People’s Choice judging for the single best chili of the event.
