Vicki's Award-Winning Chili Recipe
Mar 04, 2011

Last weekend, team Occasionally Chilly (a.k.a. Occasions Publishing Group dressed as the three blind mice) took the Polar Bear Plunge. As an additional aspect of this year's event, there was a Chili Cook-off during the post-plunge party, so Occasions’ own Vicki Nutt decided to take part. Her Three Bean Deer Chili won second place in the competition, and lucky for you, she has generously decided to share her award-winning recipe on Jonesboro.com. Enjoy!
