From mild and tart to a smoke inferno, ArtsQuest Center Executive Chef Barry Sullivan and his culinary team have created a spicy sampling of chilis made from habanero, ancho, serrano, jalapeno and chipotle peppers. During the Bottomless Chili Bowl, an all-you-can-eat affair, attendees can taste all the delicious recipes on hand and circle back for more of each of their favorites. Each chili is ranked on a scale of 1-10 for its hotness, with 10 being the hottest.

The complete list of chilis is:

1 - Wildberry Chili – Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries make for a slightly sweet and mild chili. Garnished with a Chantilly cream.

2 - New England Clam Chowder “Chili” – Super chunky, scratch-made New England chowder with shore fresh Cape May Clams, blanketed with a dusting of chili powder

2 - Smoked Sweet Potato Chili – Tomato-based. Mild and smoky.

2 - White Chicken Chili – Ain’t no tomatoes in this cannellini bean and poultry-fueled chili party!

4 - Cheesy Chili Mac – A delicious blend of mac & cheese and traditional ground beef chili.

4 - Lentils, Chickpeas, and White Beans – Oh my! – Vegetarian chili served with an avocado cream.

4 - Yuengling Lager Braised Short Rib Chili – A beer-fueled take on a classic beef and black bean chili.

6 -Turkey Town Smoked Chili – Smoked turkey breast and shredded turkey legs in a mild chili.

8 - Buffalo Chicken Chili – What if cheesy Buffalo chicken dip was actually a chili?

10 - Blow-Your-Face-Off Habanero Chili – Hot as hell. Topped with shredded Monterrey jack and cheddar cheeses. Taste only if you dare!

The afternoon also features a free beer sampling from D. G. Yuengling & Son.

Proceeds from the SteelStacks Bottomless Chili Bowl support ArtsQuest’s art and education programs for area students.
