Megan decided to dress up her cups with extra treats inside. Making several types, the fillings were peanut butter banana, peanut butter pretzel, and blueberry peach. She used Ghirardelli 70% chocolate on the outside.

Billy: Chips and Salsa

Billy opted to mimic the chips and salsa of one of his favorite places in Denton, Mi Casita. Part of the reason was because he had a lot of tomatoes from his garden that needed eating.

To accompany his garden fresh salsa, he cut corn tortillas into triangle pieces, deep fried them, and sprinkled them with a lot of paprika and salt. Pretty convincing.
