Nashua resident, Nicole Barreira placed 3rd in the ‘Last Chance Cookoff People’s Choice Chili’ category at the 2010 World’s Championship Chili Cookoff.
Approximately 70 chefs from all over America, competed at this year’s international chili cook-off, held at Veteran’s Park in Manchester, New Hampshire. Barreira took home the 3rd place award with her spicy chili recipe that had a smoky chipotle taste balanced with sweet brown sugar.
“There’s nothing like a warm, sweet and spicy bowl of chili on a crisp New England, fall day,” states Barreira, who is the corporate chef at New Hampshire’s T-BONES and Cactus Jack’s restaurants. “The chili cook-off was a blast and I’d like to give a big thanks to all the people who sampled and voted for their favorite chili! It’s an honor to receive recognition for one of my recipes at such a prestigious event.”
