2015 -Hangover Salsa

byScott Navaroli


It all began for Scott Navaroli – from Southborough, MA - after he attended a NY chili cookoff as a spectator. While there, he turned to his wife and said, "I can make a better chili than this!" A short time later in 2003, Scott entered his first official cook-off. The chili circuit has taken him across the US, cooking in 15 States and in more than 100 cook-offs. Scott believes that there is nothing better than the feeling of having friends across the country, and we agree!
