The Wrangler Brigade began its Hispanic Heritage celebration with a heritage cook-off Friday at the Freeman Cafe dining facility.

Contestants from the 4th Sustainment Brigade, 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary), used their lunch hour to share dishes consistent with their cultural heritage in tents set up outside of the dining facility.

Soldiers were able to sample a variety of dishes including enchilada pie, charro beans, and arroz Amarillo con pollo.

Three taste-testing judges were on hand to determine the winner. Sgt. Veronica Castillo took the first-place prize, a Sony MP3 player, for her green enchiladas and tres leches cake. Other prizes included a digital photo key chain, a Burger King gift card and an aromatherapy oil diffuser.

“This is a preview for our Hispanic Heritage Month celebration,” said Sgt. 1st Class Tamara Shelton, the brigade’s equal opportunity advisor. “There will be singers, dancers and a special guest speaker.”

The brigade’s Hispanic Heritage Month celebration is scheduled for Tuesday from 10-11:30 a.m., at the Battle Simulation Center Auditorium.
