The View Vs The Chew Cookoff Winner

To pick a winner from the day’s four recipes, two guest judges from the audience, Keisha and Mary, tasted all four dishes.

Mary liked the pineapple in the sloppy joe recipe, as well as the ya-ya sauce on the meatballs. Keisha loved the tender chicken in the lentil recipe and thought the red beans were “homey.”

So who won? The audience judges ultimately chose Michael and Joy’s meatballs recipe. You can try them all and tell us what you think is the best dish.
