Larry Walton from Robinson, Texas, won the 45th Terlingua International Chili Championship in Terlingua, TX, on November 5, 2011. Larry's chili was judged best by six panels of judges who had to select from over 300 chilis which were cooked at Rancho Casi de los Chisos on that day.
Larry will be present at many cookoffs throughout the year leading up to the 46th championship on November 3, 2012, as CASI continues its pursuit of "Chili, Charity, and Fun".
