Watch the 2015 Mexican Food Cookoff in 3.5 Minutes
What do you get when you put mariachis, rock-and-roll, great food and great times together in Union Plaza? You get the Mexican Food Cook-Off, 2015 edition.
Bartenders from around the city participated in the Margarita Shake-Off inside The Garden while chefs and restaurants went comal-to-comal to see who has the best Mexican food in El Paso -- no easy feat in a city full of great Mexican food.
But the food and drink was certainly not just for judges only! El Paso's finest food trucks and stands were parked all over Union Plaza, with some great kitschy shopping mixed in.
Even the big guy, General Manager Brad Dubow, was around to help with the cook-off; though what he had against the fish we're not sure. Or maybe we are!
Even El Paso music legend Little Mike was there to watch his granddaughter, Shannon Clark, perform for Mariachi Paso del Norte, which did a GREAT job with their rock-and-roll mariachi selections, including a Pink Floyd version of Las Mañanitas that got lots of laughs from the crowd.
Just makes us look forward to next year's version that much more!
