Default Salsa Success

With the help of my husband and daughter for some of the finer cutting, as well as using a dicer machine that I got from Wallymart I managed to win the Montana State Championship this past weekend. In doing so I qualified to cook at the World Chili Championships in Vegas in October.
This win was especially sweet as many of our chili cooking friends drove hundreds of miles just to see me and encourage me in my quest. I also finished 4th in Chili Verde and my husband won that event. There were lot's of tears and cheers!
Now we just need to figure out how we are getting me to Vegas!

Thank you so much - I am determined to bring home the gold for Canada - in 2002 my husband was 2nd in the World in Chili Verde with my recipe and I have twice finished in the top 20 in salsa.
Will keep you posted as I am very determined to win.

actually it is chili verde - a chili made with green chili and usually pork or chicken. It is green in colour and can have tomatoes added (in Colorado they do). I actually prefer it to traditional red. I will post recipes for both of these by Monday as they are not on my laptop and I have to transfer them.
