THE BEST SALSA WINS A $1,000 CASH GRAND PRIZE!

The first 30 contestants to register will receive a $50 Fry’s gift card!

SHOW OFF YOUR SALSA

Whether you’re an individual that has an old family recipe, a Valley business / restaurant who wants to showcase your famous salsa, or a non-profit that wants to spread the word about their organization, this challenge is for you. 

Each freshly made salsa will be judged in one of three categories – Hot, Mild and Anything Goes! A champion is determined by a panel of professional and celebrity judges in a double-blind contest based on aroma, consistency, appropriate heat level, color, taste, and after taste.  The champion will receive a $1,000 prize in addition to the prestigious honor of best salsa maker in the Valley!

Additional cash prizes and Arizona Diamondbacks tickets will be awarded to the 1st ($500), 2nd ($250) and 3rd ($100) place winners in the Individual and Non-profit Hot, Individual and Non-profit Mild and Individual and Non-profit Anything Goes categories, as well as the Best of Show ($100).
