    It’s been five years since Bear Creek rose to flood levels — thanks to nearly 7 inches of rain — and on Friday the 13th of September 2013, Evergreen residents awoke to rushing water that forced road closures, and damaged businesses and homes along its path.

    And, behind every good pot of chili is a story.

    Maybe it’s a story of a late-night brainstorm, or maybe, it’s years of experimenting, or maybe it’s literally taking a page from your own cookbook.

    Whatever the stories behind the 70-some pots of chili at the 16th annual Big Chili Cook-off Saturday, the estimated 3,500 attendees seemed to enjoy them.
