Super Bowl chili cookoff returns to Friends

Friends on Ponce held its popular 16th Annual Chili Cookoff on Sunday followed by a big Super Bowl watch party. 

Patrons helped judge the chili competition, with $500 in cash prizes going to the makers of the tastiest dish. And the winner even got to take home a trophy to commemorate the win.

Speaking of trophies, many stayed after the cookoff to watch the Kansas City Chiefs come from behind to beat the San Francisco 49ers and capture the Super Bowl title.
