Kamesha Good and her team, the Groundbreakers, out cooked 17 other competitors to win Habitat for Humanity’s fourth World Heavyweight annual Chili Championship last Saturday, during the MainX24 Block Party.
Ms. Good entered the contest not only because she loves to cook but also to complete the required volunteer hours necessary to build her first home through Habitat for Humanity. Ms. Good’s white chicken chili with the special ingredient of fire roasted corn won over the judge’s and more than 900 chili lovers who attended the event. Ms. Good and her team won World Heavyweight Chili Championship Belt along with bragging rights.
Locally-owned Alchemy Spice Company won the People’s Choice award with both their meat and veggie chili, which contained the company’s Happy Day Chili Powder.
Lastly, Team Santa No Kill Chili was presented with the Most Spirited Award. This team of eccentric Habitat supporters clad in Santa hats and elf accessories sprinkled holiday cheer throughout the event.
DeMoss Capital sponsored this year’s competition and proceeds raised will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga.
