  • Onion Recipe & Salsa Contest

    Be amazed by what you can dish up with an onion! Participants can choose to enter any or all categories: Appetizer, Main Dish, or Dessert.  Age divisions are as follows:  Youth, Student, Adult and Professional

    Onion recipes must contain a minimum of ½ cup of onions, of any variety. Spicing up the festivities is the Salsa Recipe Contest. All entries are required to include jalapenos, in honor of the Mild Jalapeno developed by Dr. Ben Villalon, aka Dr. Pepper, in Weslaco, TX. Come find out if your homemade salsa deserves some recognition!

    Winners will receive trophies and have their recipes published on the Onion Fest website.

    To enter either contest, complete an Onion Recipe Contest Form or a Salsa Recipe Contest Form and return to the Weslaco Area Chamber of Commerce.
