South Padre Island Chili Expo (SPICE)

The 2018 SPICE Chili Cook-Off was the best ever! We had 18 teams, 32 chili entries and 0ver 600 people attended! Without the support and participation of all who cooked, attended and volunteered we could not pull this event off. Thank you for your support of our mission to help women in the RGV who are fighting breast cancer.
