Each cup of chili comes just how you like it; with or without beans, and topped with shredded cheddar cheese, or onions.

This is the eighth year in a row Philippe’s and Dolores Chili has teamed up for this event.

The two companies have a relationship built upon time. The 1970’s is when it all began and Dolores Chili is still sold exclusively at Philippe’s. Both establishments have plenty in common being family-owned, Los Angeles-based companies. Dolores has been in business since 1954 and Philippe’s is celebrating 110 years in October. Dolores and Philippe’s are run by third and fourth generation family members, respectively, and both are built with the intent of hard work and core values that make them so great.

Philippe’s, being one of the oldest and best known restaurants in Southern California, is renowned by its chili which pairs well with any of French Dips, including: beef, pork, ham, lamb, turkey and pastrami.

Dolores Chili is available at Philippe’s daily by the cup or bowl, with or without beans and all the fixings, and is served with a side of crackers. Some French Dip lovers even like to dip or top their sandwich with it.

Dolores Chili is made at Dolores Canning Co. in East Los Angeles. The Dolores Chili Brick is sold in 16 oz. packages in grocery stores throughout the Western United States, including: Ralph’s, Food 4 Less, and Stater Brothers. Another option is a five-pound tray for larger entertainment feasts like the big game at Smart & Final. They also have a Chicken Chili Brick for sale.
