It Went Down at the Salsa Showdown
Did y’all enjoy your extended weekend? We had such a good time on Saturday that we are still trying to cool off! Birmingham’s 2nd annual Salsa Showdown took place and a belle had a ball. Local restaurants competed to see who took the crown for the best chips and salsa, guacamole, specialty dip and queso. All the fun benefitted Sidewalk‘s educational programs.
You already know that the sis and I love Mexican food, so we were in chip and salsa heaven! Tamika and I were fortunate to be judges and put our taste buds to work. Tamika was a salsa judge and I was a guacamole, queso and specialty dip judge.
Let’s just say our palette got a workout; one specialty dip–a tomatillo based dip had my mouth on fire. Tamika said a few sauces gave her tastebuds a run for their money too.
After eating, we had to work off the calories by banging on piñatas! We actually won a few Rojo gift certificates (thanks to our sweet big sis). The older sis won Sidewalk passes. There was a hot pepper eating contest and it lasted well over 40 minutes.
