Chili Cook-Off

Chili Cook-off

32nd Annual Chili Cook-Off

The Chili Cook-Off is the longest-standing tradition at UHCL. The event is held every spring and will be part of the 2023 Homecoming and Family Weekend series of programs.

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! Hunter is turning 10 this year, and we are going big. Come celebrate with us! This is a great opportunity to bring your family and friends to show them what UHCL is all about.
