WESLACO — The Onion and Salsa Recipe Contest returns to Texas Onion Fest this year at Weslaco City Park, to be held on Sunday, March 25, at the AEP Texas Culinary Center. Creativity is the name of the game, as last year’s winners included Sweet Onion Jam with Goat Cheese Crostini and Butter Poached Baby Onion Tart.

The Culinary Center will feature a state-of-the-art kitchen. The contests will be held in front of a live audience.

For the Onion Recipe competition, participants are required to use a one-half cup of onions in their recipe. The salsa recipe contest adds a local flare to the event which requires participants to include a one-half cup of jalapenos. The contest honors the Mild Jalapeno developed in Weslaco by Dr. Ben Villalon.

Competing age categories include youth ages 7 -12, students ages 13-18, adult ages 19 and up, and professional for restaurants, café’s, chefs and cooks. Winners will receive trophies and have their recipes published on the Texas Onion Fest website.

Entry forms are available at www.weslaco.com and at the Weslaco Area Chamber of Commerce, 255 S. Texas Blvd. Registration deadline is Friday, March 16. For more information, call 956-968-2102.
