GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Local fire stations and various Greenville restaurants submitted their best recipes for the city of Greenville’s annual chili cook-off.
Some weren’t afraid to give away what makes their recipes taste so good, while others use the event to perfect their recipe each year.
“I think the year before last my chili was too thick, and I mean I had a bunch of it,” said Joey Minner, a park ranger with the city of Greenville. “So this year, I didn’t make it so thick, and I think it’s paid off.”
The event raised $15,000 for the United Way of Pitt County.
After trying several bowls of chili, many gave into their sweet tooth at the silent auction bake sale.
Greenville Fire and Rescue holds the event every year in November to kick off the giving season.
