Creating the winning beef and bean tostada were Chase Hiatt, Logan Mayberry, Kale Litzman and Raul Mendoza. While the student chefs were preparing the tostadas, the Menji Gaub’s Tawankado Hotchkiss K-8 students (below) each broke a four-inch board in half. Teacher Glenda Young thanked Karen Todd and the Black Mesa Cattlewomen who have helped and supported the quarterly beef cook-offs and the year-end championship Iron Chef competitions. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Todd and her family,” Young said regarding Mrs. Todd’s recent health issues.
