The people who are in charge of the event say they have it covered.

Chili or chili beans? If it's beans and you intend to cook the beans a day before the event make sure the batch is stirred frequently during cooling to prevent the beans from souring.

I was vending at a large reptile show in Daytona Beach. A friend was working the booth of another vendor, who told him it was cool to have some of his own animals for sale under that vendors permit. The FWC didn't agree and he went to jail.

Make it mild in heat and have some hot sauces for individuals to add their own. Been to a lot of festivals and they make it to hot for one taste and end up mad and throwing it away. I like it hot but a lot of people don't. I also would also have a selection of different topping to put on besides hot sauces like cheese, onions, I like Fritos on the top of mind and maybe corn bread or a corn muffin.

A 16 oz. portion seems like a lot. I'm assuming there will be other booths with food available? If you plan to feed 100 people a full meal, you will have lots of leftovers and probably few profits. I would think 8 oz. plus toppings and bread would be plenty. That's assuming you get the safety/permitting issue worked out. I worked a barbecue cook-off once and health inspectors kept coming around randomly to make sure the food was being held and served safely.

It was more a part of a project like a bake sale so i really didn't need chili for 100 lol. No matter we're freezing it for this summer's taco salads and chili dogs as well as chili mac, tamale pie, I may even stuff tamales with my chili. I sold the most out of everyone who brought food. I was so proud. Several people asked me what was in my chili. Hubby thinks it should be a family only recipe. But I can give hints! :-D

craig, the fwc are a bunch of snakes to jail someone like that...

it sounds like you had the event, already?

if not, (even if so, lol), i agree with gg once again.

a pint container, like one of those sold in chinese restaurants to hold soup, would be sufficient served with a small dinner roll or piece of italian bread, and maybe you could offer some diced onion to go on top along with some hot sauces.

btw, you never answered, or maybe i missed it: chili with or without beans.

Whoops! Sorry it's chili with beans but I used dried not canned. In Ohio we like beans with our chili.
