Got Salsa? Like to Eat?

If you think you have a great salsa recipe, you know the one that everyone ask you to bring when you are going to a party, well then, you need to participate in the Blanco Cooks for the Cure Chili Cook Off. It’s simple to do and lots of fun! You could even be honored one of the best salsa makers in the Hill Country. The salsa competition takes place February 7 at Yett Park. Turn in time is 12 noon. The entry fee is $20.00 and the funds will go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. There are lots of other categories to enter if you are interested in cooking competitions and lots of fun activities for the entire family.

Some events begin Friday night, with a Pot Luck Venison Stew dinner along with a Margarita Mix Off, Jackpot Bean and a dessert competition. Saturday morning, the air will be filled with Smokey aroma of Mesquite wood and jalapeño peppers. There will be chili, chicken and pork rib categories along with the salsa for judging and sampling. Also, not to forget our friendly best friends, there will be a Pretty in Pink Pet Parade, open to the public for a $2.00 donation beginning at 11:00 am. A scavenger hunt will take place through-out the day ending at 3 pm. Hand Made rugs and Crochet Tuscany Blankets will be in the raffle along with beautiful neck scarves (lots of pretty pink ones) to help keep you warm. There will also be desserts and cakes for the spinning wheel cakewalk.

Vendors are welcomed to set up for a $20.00 donation and donate one item for the raffle. And if you are not a cook, but love to eat, come out and be a judge. To judge, you must sign up in advance at the contact information below.

As the friendliest folks in the Texas Hill Country host Blanco Cooks for the Cure Chili and BBQ Cook Off, the public is invited to participate all weekend. Come out on Saturday and have your vital signs measured complements of the Bulverde EMS, (time to be determined). On Sunday morning cooks will hang around and prepare a yummy Cowboy Pancake Breakfast at 7 am for a cash donation with 100% to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization of San Antonio which supports the Blanco County area.

Our event will take place in Blanco, Texas at Yett Memorial Park on February 6, 7 and 8th. We are hoping this event will help raise funds towards the Cure and help support the local economy at the same time. Rain or shine won’t matter to these cooks. CONTACT: Barby, 830 833-1442
