For authentic Mexican food, beautiful scenery, and some of the hottest salsa in the Southwest, follow the fiery flavors of Arizona's Salsa Trail. Beginning in Safford, about 11/2 hours east of Tucson, the trail has stops at 13 family-run restaurants, a chile company, and a tortilla factory in 8 small towns along US Hwy. 70 (also known as the Old West Highway). In Sept., SalsaFest hosts salsa-making competitions, food demos, and a daring jalapeño-eating contest. Think you can handle the heat? See www.salsatrail.com for a map and directions, or call 888-837-1841 before heading out.
