Chili Cook-Off

Chili Cook-off


A Beloved UHCL Tradition Returning in 2022

The Chili Cook-Off is the longest-standing tradition at UHCL. The event is typically held every spring, but Chili Cook-Off has not occurred at UHCL since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The cook-off hopes to come back strong in 2022 as a part of Homecoming and Family Weekend!

We welcome students, faculty, staff and the community to campus for chili tastings, food, music and fun. Members of the university and alumni can form teams and submit their chili recipes for a chance at bragging rights. And to add to the fun, Hunter, our beloved mascot, celebrates his birthday at the cook-off! This is a great opportunity to bring your family and friends to show them what campus life is all about.
