Chili Cook-Off

Chili Cook-off


A UHCL Tradition

The Chili Cook-Off is the longest-standing tradition at UHCL. Held every spring, the cook-off welcomes 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.
