COMPETITION: World Open Chili Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: Laughlin Regional - Laughlin, NV (Red)My name is Margo Knudson. I’m ninety-one years old and I’ve been competing in chili contests since 1981. In 1987 I won the world championship, and have been qualified to cook in the world eleven times. Cooking has always been a part of my life. My husband and I competed for years together after retiring from the restaurant business, and enjoyed such camaraderie on the chili cooking circuit. It has become like a “chili family”. My chili recipe is derived from my father’s recipe, and my husband J. R. and I worked on perfecting it over the years. This will be my twelfth world chili competition.
