World Chili Cookoff Returning to W.Va.

For the second time in four years, the planet's top chili makers will be competing in Charleston.

The International Chili Society's annual World Championship Chili Cookoff will be held Oct. 5 through 7 on Charleston's west side.

Charleston hosted the competition in 2009. That marked the first time the ICS held its championship east of the Mississippi River. The event was held the past two years in Manchester, N.H.

The world championships involve red and green chili categories, along with salsa. Competitors must first win a regional title from among dozens held around the United States and Canada.

For the first time, this year's competition also will include a "homestyle" category that includes a cook's favorite combination of ingredients. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
