A call for the best salsa in Tucson gathered nominations for 67 restaurants — all of them your favorites. We used the nomination numbers to seed a 32-restaurant Salsa Madness bracket.

You like it tomato-y, chunky, face-meltingly spicy, fruity, green, smooth and on your table with those salty chips.

Let’s narrow it down some more.

Star readers can vote on which restaurant boasts the best salsa in town. Each week, we’ll eliminate half of the competition based on your votes.

Voting for the championship round begins June 12.

May your favorite salsa win.
