The Longboat Key Fire Rescue Department is heating up. On Oct. 8, the crew took second place in Morton’s Firehouse Chili Cook-Off. Last year, it won third place for its “Red Tide Chili” recipe, and this year, the crew only tweaked that recipe a little bit to bring it the second-place victory. The team came up with the idea by merging some of its favorite chili recipes together, but don’t ask for the “Red Tide Chili” recipe. It’s a secret. Maybe they’ll share the recipe Nov. 18 at the Longboat Key Firefighter Association Golf Classic.
