Hatchett’s 2020 Chili Cook-Off

February 1, 2020

Hatchett Design Remodel hosted our 9th Annual Chili Cook-Off today to kick off Super Bowl weekend! The Hatchett Design Remodel Staff, family, and clients gathered in our Newport News showroom as our chili contenders competed crockpot to crockpot!

The competition heated up this year as our chili masters vied for Hatchett’s coveted Chili Cook-Off trophy.

Our esteemed panel of taste testers mingled while they enjoyed a sample of each batch before casting their ballots. Of all the champion chilis, there was one clear winner.

The Winner

Congratulations, Tommy for earning your place in Hatchett Design Remodel history as the 2020 Chili Cook-Off Winner. He couldn’t have done it without the winning recipe, which came from one of our clients. Half that trophy is yours, Rusty Adams!

If you’re looking for a really good chili recipe for this Sunday’s game, here’s Tommy’s (and Mr. Adams’) winning recipe.


1-1/2″lbs stew meat
2 cans 10oz Rotel diced tomatoes & green chilies
1 can 15oz Bush’s seasoned black beans
1 can 15oz sweet corn
1 can 13oz mushrooms
1 can 15oz pitted black olives
1 pouch 1.25oz McCormick chili season
1 tbsp liquid smoke


Cut stew meat into smaller pieces and brown in a skillet.
Drain water from corn, mushrooms, and black olives.
Chop mushrooms and olives.
Add entire cans of RoTel and seasoned black beans into the crock pot.
Add corn, mushrooms, olives, chili seasoning liquid smoke, and browned stew meat into the crock pot.

For those who like something sweet to go with your savory, another client, Mrs. Gamache, offered up her recipe for Chocochip Gooey Treats. Delish!
