Chili Apprectiaion Society International

Each year, CASI sanctions nearly 500 chili cookoffs internationally as qualifying events for the Annual CASI Terlingua International Chili Championship ©, known as TICC.   These sanctioned local events raise over $1,000,000 for local and national charities.  This annual ultimate chili championship is held the first Saturday of November at Rancho CASI de los Chisos, near Terlingua, Texas.  The CASI Championship event is a fundraiser for local Terlingua charities and organizations and also funds CASI's National Scholarship programs.

CASI's Mission:

To create and maintain a structure that promotes chili cookoff events which bridge the gap between local charitable organizations, the community and corporations.

CASI sanctioned chili cookoffs are intended to bring local communities and competitive chili cooks together to raise awareness of chili and raise funds for the local charities, while supporting the community with wholesome, enriched competitive cooking events.

CASI's Vision Statement: 

"Making a positive difference in someone's life with every pot of chili cooked."

This vision portrays the attitude of every CASI cook as we fire up our stove to cook a pot of chili at a charity or community CASI sanctioned event. 

Chili, Charity, and Fun

This motto describes the theme of our cookoffs and the positive environment CASI cookoffs create. Resoundingly successful in accomplishing our mission, since being founded in 1983, CASI has generated and donated over $30,000,000 in financial support for local charities.
CASI is governed by a diverse volunteer board of directors elected by local affiliate pods (chapters) nationally and internationally.
