Annual chili festivalPosted: Updated:
Hot and spicy chili. It puts the sizzle in southwest and helps preserve Sonoran beauty at the same time.
For the past nine years, the Rincon Institute-- a non profit organization working to conserve the Sonoran Desert-- has hosted the roasted chili festival.
All of the vendor fees and raffle money go toward the institute's projects, like the Rincon Valley Farmer's Market.
