The Kerbey Lane queso recipe might have crashed into the moon this week, but though it's unlikely that your best queso recipe will end up on the moon anytime soon, it could win you big prizes at the upcoming Quesoff.

The ninth annual celebration of Texas' beloved cheese dip is slated for 1 to 4 p.m. on July 27 at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, and organizer Adi Anand has opened applications for this year's contest, which draws about 30 competitors, including restaurants, chefs and home-cooks who compete in four categories: meaty, spicy, veggie and wild card.

The crowd votes on the favorites in each of those categories, but a panel of judges will pick a best in show winner. Anyone can enter and there is no fee. You can send an email to queso@mohawkaustin.com to sign up, and you can compete in multiple categories.

The event is free to attend, but bags of chips cost $5.
