BRAWLEY — While competing teams in the annual Chili Cook-Off began at 4 a.m. Saturday to prepare what they hoped would be a winning recipe, the team Just in CASE Chili had been prepping for the past 25 years.

Over its quarter of a century in the competition, Just in CASE hadn’t been able to secure a first place finish. That is, until the team, which is made up of staff from Jordan Central Implement Co. in El Centro, came up with this year’s formula.
