A Centennial Salsa Contest is being held in conjunction with UTEP’s International Food Fair and the University’s Centennial celebration.“It is open to anyone who has a love for/tie/connection to UTEP – students, faculty, staff, fans, or friends,” said Keith A. Erekson, Ph.D., assistant professor of history and teacher education and executive director of UTEP’s Centennial Celebration. “The idea of doing something with food had been on the table for some time, but things came into focus this summer. When people attended the alumni PICK-NICs around the country, they were disappointed to eat only hamburgers. They wanted food from ‘home.’ So this salsa contest is a way both to produce delicious Centennial food from home and to involve UTEP’s friends and family in the process.”Recipes are due by 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22. The winner will be selected during the Office of International Program’s International Food Fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 5 at the UTEP Union Plaza.
The winning recipe will be published and served throughout UTEP’s Centennial Celebration. To submit your recipe, email the following details to firstname.lastname@example.org:
– Full name
– Salsa recipe, including all ingredients, measurements, and how to prepare/mix them
– Number of servings your recipe yields
– A sentence or two about your love of UTEP
– Phone number
Note that ingredients that are not commercially available or have a short shelf life – including bananas, jamaica, and sugar cane juice – should not be used since the winning recipe will be commercially produced. Questions should be addressed to the UTEP Centennial Office, 915-747-5362.
