Entries were judged on aroma, texture, flavor, and taste by guests, as well as official judges. Salsa entries ranged from mild, to creamy, to fruity to a spicy salsa that left tasters looking for a cold drink.

Austin Downs’ entry won the People’s Choice award, while Claudia Cereceres won the judge’s top pick.

Guests enjoyed a silent and live auction along with a taco and enchilada bar buffet prepared by the Liberal Country Club. The auction consisted of several items donated by local businesses individuals, and organizations.
