The Chili Dog Cook-Off is an event that appears in the Sonic Boom series. It is a yearly cooking competition held in the Village on Seaside Island where the residents compete in the art of chili dog making.
At the Chili Dog Cook-Off, the participants primary goal is to create the most delicious chili sauce for a chili dog using their own personal recipes prepared at the site of the competition. One variable villager serves as the partial judge for the cook-off and the one to win the competition earns a golden trophy.
The latest Chili Dog Cook-Off was managed by Team Sonic, with Sonic the Hedgehog as its judge. However, the group could not coordinate and thus made the stage needed for the event with unreliable components. As such, Amy decided to build it herself. Afterward, several participants discovered that phony "one of a kind peppers," sold to them by Mrs. Vandersnout for the competition as a scam to earn easy money, were in circulation, prompting Knuckles to head into the forest to find a new peper to win the cook-off with. When Knuckles found one and tried it out however, it made him pass out and miss the cook-off (whose winner was not revealed). The next day, Team Sonic found Knuckles, having just dreamt about Eggman ensuring himself victory in the Chili Dog Cook-Off with the Facepeeler Maximus and Chili Maker 5000, which prompted Knuckles to set off in search of the Lost Pepper of Claggerhorn and then attack the cook-off participants with the Pepper People.
