Murphy's Menu Salsa Cook-Off Winners

Last Wednesday was the infamous Murphy’s Menu Salsa Cook-off, and the people did not disappoint. Neither did the heat, but that’s OK. It’s summer.
There were four hot salsas and eight “not hot” salsas. We had great voter turnout: an estimated 90 people from 5 to 6 p.m. came by to try out all kinds of salsas. The two winners were given a great reusable shopping bag with chips, choppers, limes, garlic and all kinds of other helpful food gifts from Nancy Garcia at Country Mart North. There were fresh and canned salsas. Salsa with beans and salsas with mangoes. All in all, it was a nice mix and very challenging choice for the tasters.
