Cinco de Mayo cannot come soon enough for chefs from 12 Sedona area restaurants.

In anticipation of winning the prized "First Place Judges Award" Trophy, they are selecting special spices and ingredients for the Rotary Club of Sedona's Great Sedona Chili Cook-Off competition.

The handsome, hand-forged trophy is a traveling recognition, last won by El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano in Tlaquepaque. The winner will be selected by a panel of distinguished chili lovers - Sedona Mayor Rob Adams, Police Chief Ray Cota and Verde Valley Fire Chief Nazih Hazime.

The coveted "First Place Judges Award" will be presented at 3 p.m. on May 5 at Tlaquepaque's Calle de Independencia.

"People's Choice" and "Best Decorated Booth" awards will also be awarded to winners from participating restaurants: Bodacious Burgers, El Rincon Restaurante Mexicano, Mesa Grill, Oak Creek Brewery & Grill, Reds, Redstone Grill & Patio, Rene at Tlaquepaque, Renegades Steakhouse, The Secret Garden Café, West Side Deli, Verde Valley School and Zainey's.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. admission to the Great Sedona Chili Cook-Off is $10 for adults, children under 10 are free. Proceeds from the Great Sedona Chili Cook-Off will benefit Rotary International's effort to End Polio Now worldwide and the Rotary Club of Sedona's newly launched Imagination Library Program which provides free books for pre-school children.
