Do you have more tomatoes than you can eat and a killer salsa recipe? If so, pull out those pots and get cooking! Enter the Best Salsa Contest during the Simon Kenton Chili Cook off Festival, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 23, for the chance to take home $100 and bragging rights.

To enter, fill out the entry form available on line and drop off your salsa at the Courthouse Stage, 200 N. Main St.,Urbana, by 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 23. You do not have to prepare your salsa on site, but no canned, restaurant or bottled salsas are allowed. Entries must be in disposable containers, with recipes and registration forms attached. There is no charge to enter. This is an opportunity to use all those tomatoes and the chance to win $100 first prize or $50 second prize. If you have no tomatoes, how about watermelon? Be creative and join the fun!
