The Team Work Chili Cook-Off program combines creativity with culinary skill. A fun ice breaker will result in the formation of teams, each of whom will have a designated table equipped with all the necessary cookware, utensils and a stove.
16 - 200
1.5 – 2.5 hours
20 sq ft per participant is a good guide. Each team will need a table large enough to accommodate a portable stove, ingredient prepping, and creation of a marketing strategy. Very large events can be done in a ballroom or outdoors if weather permits.
- Have fun
- Play together
- Resource management
- Negotiation skills
- Create a memorable experience for the group
- Friendly competition
When the judging begins, scorecards will be utilized to award points based on creativity, presentation and taste. One team will emerge triumphant as the reigning Chili Cook-Off Champions! Judges can either be members of the participating company or event staff.
Other options include adding our famous Salsa or Winery Team Challenge and incorporating southwestern trivia.
The searing flavors of this fiery festival guarantee that TeamBonding’s Team Work Chili Cook-Off program brings the five-alarm fun to your summer team building outing! Do your team members have a fire in their belly when it comes to their chili recipe? Think they can bring red-hot heat and be crowned chili champion? Then step on up, partners! Show off that chili machismo as you vie for succulent spicy success!
Teams will start out with the basic chili necessities (the meat and tomatoes, if you will). Ye Olde General Store is open for teams to purchase more ingredients. But, teams had better leave their inner-bandito at home. The sheriff keeps a watchful eye and doesn’t take too kindly to sneak-thievin’.
Teams can also negotiate with the hombres from other teams for those last minute needs. But no tusslin’. Sheriff’ll ride you right out of town for that.
If your chili recipe is definitely blue ribbon material, bring it on! Us judges have certainly polished our belt-buckles around a few pots of Texas Red in the past. Shucks, even got some stuck in our cookie dusters. We know good chuck. So make sure your chili is a true hot tamale!
TeamBonding’s Team Work Chili Cook-Off program is both hot and chili con cool!

You got everyone involved and it was truly amazing how this team builder got the creativity of all of our teams flowing. I can’t count how many people told me it was our best team builder ever!
The Chili Cook-Off went very well. It was a huge success and everyone really enjoyed it!
Thank you for all of your help---the Chili Cook-off was a huge success with NBC Universal Cable Sales!
