Posted By on Tue, Jan 14, 2014 at 2:08 PM

When does the weather not scream chili? Sure, the sun's out and you can't find a cloud for miles, but that doesn't mean the temperature will always play nice. For those chilly, miserable days, we present the two winning recipes from last weekend's chili cook-off at The Point Park & Eats (24188 Boerne Stage).

Pork U, owned by Scott and Donna Farmer, was voted fan-favorite, while Sean Phoenix's Slider Provider Chili came in as judges' pick. We're letting you decide which recipe reigns by sharing both.

Slider Provider Chili

Serves 15

5 pounds angus chuck

1 pound smoked/chopped brisket

1 small jalapeño, diced (w/ seeds and ribs)

1/2  Serrano pepper, diced  (w/ seeds and ribs)

1 softball-sized 10/15 onion, diced

1 (12-ounce) can of dark sweet beer (We used Karbach's Yule Shoot Your Eye Out)

2.5 cups generic chili powder

10 tablespoons ancho chili powder, or to taste

3 3/4 tablespoons granulated garlic

3 3/4 tablespoons Mexican oregano

2 1/2 tablespoons paprika

2 1/2 tablespoons cumin

Kosher Salt, to taste

Black Pepper, to taste

2 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 1/4 tablespoons onion powder

1 (10.75-ounce) can  hot Rotel

1 (10.75-ounce) can original Rotel

1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

4 ounces water

Brown and season ground beef, all peppers & onions together.  Add it to a stock pot along with all other ingredients except salt and black pepper.  Simmer as long as you possibly can.  We suggest at least 4 hours.  Add salt & pepper towards the end as flavors will intensify as it cooks down.  We like to serve it with sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, diced onion and garlic bread.
