The Southern Arizona 5th Annual Salsa and Tequila Challenge has shaken up summers in Tucson for over four years, bringing the region’s cultural garden to modern day taste buds!
This year’s culinary event brings together up to 50 chefs and restaurants, preparing unique salsa recipes and innovative tequila-based drinks, along with sweet and savory menu pairings.
Participating restaurants for 2015 include: JW Marriott Starr Pass, Corona, Mouth of the South Salsa, El Saguarito Mexicano Food, Gringo Grill & Cantina, GAP Ministries, El Cisne Restaurant, Click Cafe Green Valley, Sonoran Sno-Cones, and many more.
Ticket-holders will be able to sample chips, salsa, tequila, and appetizers – and then cast their votes in a variety of categories.
Proceeds benefit the Food Bank of Southern Arizona and SAACA’s arts therapy and education programs.
