1. Your chili recipe must be original. Recipes you've found in cookbooks and magazines are okay if you've changed them to make them uniquely your own.
2. By submitting your chili recipe and participating in my Chili Cook-Off Challenge, you give me permission to include your recipe in my new chili cookbook. Your recipe will be credited to you and your blog url will also be given.
3. This is the really fun rule: Make the best chili you can. Voting
will determine the winner. You can participate each month as long as the chili recipe you submit is different from the others you've submitted. Sometime before the 20th of each month, post your chili recipe on your blog, along with a mention that you're entering it in the Chili Cook-Off Challenge and provide a link back to this blog. Then send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org giving me the link.
4. On the 21st, I'll post a round-up with a picture of your chili and a link to your post. Everyone can vote for their favorite recipe by leaving a comment. At the end of the month, I'll announce the winner and award the prize: This really hot badge to proudly display on your sidebar.
So get your chili cooking and let me know about it!
UPDATE: I've moved the Chili Cook-Off Challenge to my new Chili... A Bowl of Red foodie blog.
