The 2012 Salsa Challenge was a huge success! The Salsa Challenge is an opportunity for people, amateurs and professionals, to show off their salsa making skills and unbeatable recipes. All salsas were prepared on-site, right in the Salsa Challenge tent. People had the chance to buy chips and go to each salsa challenge contestant to sample their awesome and unique salsas. Bragging rights, as well as prizes, were awarded to the best of the best!
