Quesoff seeks entrants for seventh-annual queso competition

The Quesoff is coming back for its seventh year this August, and if you think you’ve got the best queso in Austin, now is the time to sign up to compete.

Each year, about 30 competitors go head-to-head in four categories: meaty, spicy, veggie and wild card. A panel of judges picks a Best in Show, and audience members get to vote, too. In past years, they’ve had queso ice cream, tandoori queso and duck mezcal queso, and event host Adi Anand says he expects nothing less from this year’s entrants.

You can sign up to compete for a variety of prizes by emailing queso@mohawkaustin.com.

Want to attend? Mark your calendars for 2 p.m. Saturday, August 26, at the Mohawk, 912 Red River St. The event is a food drive and fundraiser for the Central Texas Food Bank.
