Cincinnati woman's salsa wins at World Chili Cook Off

PALM SPRINGS, CA (FOX19) - A Cincinnati woman is serving up some delicious salsa and now she has the title to prove it.

Gail Donovan of Delhi Township took first place in the salsa division of the 2013 World Chili Cook Off Championship on Oct. 12 in Palm Springs, California.

According to her husband Bill, she competed with over 100 pre-qualified competitors from all over the country, including Alaska and Hawaii. Donovan also beat out contenders from the United Kingdom, Sweden, Canada, the Cayman Islands and Mexico.

In 2011, she finished second at the Worlds Chili Championship in New Hampshire.

"Donovan's 'Code 3 Salsa' is definitely a proven winner," said her husband, a retired Cincinnati firefighter.
