El Yucateco is Bringing the Heat to the 55th World Championship Chili Cook-off

The International Chili Society (ICS), along with the World Championship Chili Cook-off (WCCC), is pleased to announce it’s spicy partnership with El Yucateco - Official Hot Sauce of the 55th World Championship Chili Cook-off in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Sept. 23-25, 2022.  


“Introducing fantastic brands to our colorful clan of chiliheads is one of our most exciting objectives,” said Mike McCloud, CEO of ICS and WCCC. “Hot sauce and chili go hand-in-hand and we’re happy to have El Yucateco on board.”

Spin365 Marketing, a subsidiary of The Padilla Group, is exclusively responsible for El Yucateco’s brand marketing, sales, and public relations in North America.


“This is a great opportunity for the El Yucateco brand to shine as the Official Hot Sauce of the World Championship Chili Cook-off and the World Food Championship. El Yucateco has a wide variety of hot sauces that are the perfect blend of flavor and heat for food sport enthusiasts to use in their recipes and with their favorite foods,” said John Meyer, Vice-President at Spin365 Marketing.


As the Official Hot Sauce sponsor, El Yucateco will provide hundreds of professional chili cooks at WCCC55 with various samples that they can also include in their championship chili recipes.
