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.

Now in its 35th year, My Nana’s Best-Tasting Salsa Challenge is the largest annual fundraiser for the Arizona Hemophilia Association, which assists those with inherited blood disorders by advocating for a cure and providing services that enhance quality of life. And to celebrate the event’s 35th anniversary, the prize winnings have been increased to total $3,500, with the grand prize winner walking away with $1,500 in addition to the prestigious honor of the best salsa maker in the Valley.

Additional cash prizes and a D-backs Prize Pack, including (4) tickets to an upcoming home game, will be awarded to the 1st ($650), 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).
