Salsa Contest in Ventura

The Padre Ventura office held a salsa contest.  Entrants included Aubrey, Tony Jerome, Jess and Marco.  The variety of salsas was remarkable especially considering they did not coordinate on the effort.  Salsas included those of the chunky, smooth, fruity and green varieties.  Staff had the joy of tasting and voting on their favorite.  The winning salsa was a chunky variety prepared by Aubrey who shares her recipe below.
