There's nothing better during an Iowa winter than a delicious bowl of chili. Now, chili can be made in so many different ways and almost all of those ways are delicious.

This weekend, you'll be able to try many variations of chili at an annual chili cook-off in Davenport. This chili cook-off not only showcases numerous chili recipes, but it also raises money to support an incredible, local non-profit.
