Welcome to JD’s Chili Parlor


H-E-B has scoured the Lone Star State in search of the most delectable culinary creations from talented Texans during the company’s annual Quest for Texas Best competition. After tasty deliberations, 20 finalists with a flair for food were selected out of more than 824 entrepreneurs from 136 cities and towns across the state.

Since its inception in 2014, HEB has sifted through more than 3,000 products in the Quest for Texas Best competition and has yielded nearly 450 unique products worthy of company-wide distribution.

Gourmet Chili & Chilified Products made by

Professional Chili Designers 

Texans take their chili very seriously and so do we! Inspired by the historic Chili Queens, who invented chili right here in San Antonio almost 200 years ago, our passion is to make the most delicious, high quality and versatile chili and chilified products you’ve ever tasted. We created a unique line of Americana fusions unlike anything the world has ever seen!

You can also find us at various farmers markets and special events in the greater San Antonio area and around Texas. Our very own Chili Queen of Texas, Diana Anderson, likes to serve big bowls of red wherever she goes, bringing smiles to people’s faces. Visit our calendar page for details or just listen for the call of the Chili Queen, “Chili, Chili, Chili!”

Planning an event? We are also available for private events and catering. Come on in and sample our chilis at our tasting room, located at the Local Sprout Food Hub in downtown San Antonio. Contact us to set up an appointment.
