There’s no doubt, Minnesotans embrace the cold “chilly” weather and the Wayzata Chili Cook-off has become a tradition celebrating that concept.  Over 10 local restaurants participate and serve their secret special recipe, while celebrity judges taste for the best. Thank you to each of our chefs and their crew who spend many long hours creating some of the best chilis in the North! And get ready to rock with PowerTap
