PHOENIX -- Calling all cooks! Do you have what it takes to win $25,000 from Chevron? That's 10 to 15 years in gas money alone!

The Game Day Chef Challenge launched Friday, Aug. 1, just in time for football season. Bradley Hasemeyer explains that contestants should put together a meal with food purchased at gas stations.

"It really only has to incorporate one item," he says. "So you don't have to go into a Chevron and grab everything. You just cook whatever you were going to cook for dinner and realize, oh, I need some salt or some pepper. You could do that."

You don't have to be a professional chef, either! Home cooks on any level are welcome to enter.

Bradley showed off his concoction on Monday's Good Morning Arizona. He calls it the "Bradley Cheesy & Loaded Buffalo Dog." Most of the ingredients came from a Chevron.

"Create your creation. Take a photo of it. Take a photo of your receipt. Take a photo of your recipe," he says. "Pull all that together and submit it online."
Contest Overview:
- Choose your best recipe
- Incorporate any food or non-alcoholic beverage item from a Chevron or Texaco station
- Prepare the dish, take a photo and submit to www.THEGAMEDAYCHEF.com
