RO*TEL Across America Looks To Facebook To Find Best Recipe

RO*TEL, the maker of canned tomato and chili products, has created a new recipe contest powered by Facebook called RO*TEL Across America. The company will award $2,000 to “the most creative, best tasting RO*TEL recipe” created by its fans.

Fans can submit their entries until June 13th. On June 16th, after all the recipes have been submitted, a panel of judges will decide on the top ten submissions. The first round of judging will be conducted by both the brand and guest Judge Mary, a food blogger focused on country style southern cooking. The ten finalists will then be put to a vote among the company’s Facebook fans to decide the first place winner. Fans can vote until June 30th, and the winner will be announced on July 7th.
