CHILI SUPER BOWL- Home of "World's Largest Chili Pot"

In 1982 several Abilene businessmen became aware of needs that existed at the Abilene Boys Ranch. Since most of these “Good Ole Boys” were chili cookers, it was decided that the way to raise money would be to have a chili cook off. The Chili Super Bowl was born. Amazing transformations have happened at the Ranch since the beginning of the cook off.

The Directors and Volunteers are proud to help the Ranch by sponsoring the Chili Super Bowl annually on Labor Day weekend in beautiful Buffalo Gap. Up to 100 chili, brisket, chicken, beans and rib cooking teams from all over the state come to compete for prize monies in excess of $7500. All cash prize money is donated by local merchants.
