ND community of Minto serves record pot of chili

MINTO, N.D. — The northeastern North Dakota community of Minto is in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest serving of chili con carne.

The Grand Forks Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1almU6B ) that Guinness confirmed that the Minto community had cooked a pot of 2,240 pounds of chili in June. That broke a 10-year-old record by more than 1,000 pounds. The previous record was set in 2003, when the Keystone Aquatic Club in Harrisburg, Pa., cooked a pot of 1,430 pounds.

The news that Minto had broken the previous record was announced Thursday evening before a crowd of 250 members of the Minto community who had gathered for another benefit feed featuring chili.
