And they were certainly feeling the heat there, but it wasn't just because of the weather.
"Feel the Heat" chili, bean, and salsa competition had cooks stirring up creations to tempt the taste buds of judges.
Usually Rainbow House holds a fundraising dinner and dance.
But this yearn coordinators decided to spice things up a bit and host this cook off that can allow all Texomans to have fun.
Terri Jackson, Rainbow House executive director, says, "This gives us an opportunity to have vendors and other non-profits out here to help and to have something for the kids to do, where the don't have anything at a dinner/dance auction. Besides that, we get to taste chili and we get to meet all kinds of people outside. It's just gonna be a lot of fun."
Proceeds from this first "Feel the Heat" cook-off will benefit Rainbow House, which helps abused and neglected children in our community.
