Judges evaluate entries in the 2014 Chili in the Channel cookoff at ReNew Cultural Arts Academy.

  New Orleanians may be more discriminating about their gumbo recipes, but chili is poised to gain some attention at the second annual Chili in the Channel cookoff March 7.

  A fundraiser to benefit ReNew Schools, the event's second iteration promises to be packed with spicier, meatier competition than last year's, which featured 15 restaurants (many located in the Irish Channel) and amateurs competing for the golden pot trophy.

  This year, 20 professional and amateur teams battle for chili glory, and registration is underway. Each team can have no more than six participants and will receive a stipend for purchasing ingredients at BreauxMart (www.breauxmart.com). Teams can sign up by emailing Scott Satchfield (scott@renewschools.org). The competition is from 11. a.m. to 4 p.m. March 7 at ReNew Cultural Arts Academy (3128 Constance St., 504-367-3307; www.renewschools.org).
