Chile Pepper Eating Contest
Can you Handle the Heat?
If you think you are up for the challenge join as at the Great Bowls of Fire Chili Cook-off on Nov. 12th at 1pm in Alameda Park on the Main Stage.
The substance that makes a Chile so hot is called Capsaicin. Pure Capsaicin is rated somewhere between 15,000,000-16,000,000 Scoville heat units. To put Scoville heat units (SU) in a better prospective, a jalapeno is rated 2,500-8,000 Scoville heat units compared to a Habanero which is rated 100,000-325,000 Scoville heat units. Our competition will have you eating one pepper per round stepping up to a higher Scoville heat each time. Last Man or Woman standing wins! See Prizes below
