MADISON, WI – Oscar Mayer today announced that Maria Carrion-Kozak of Colorado has been selected as the grand prize winner of its national Sabor de Mama recipe contest. Mrs. Carrion-Kozak’s recipe, “Tortilla Mama Luisa”, was an evolution of her grandmother’s original Tortilla Espanola recipe and dedicated to her mother Luisa.

“Oscar Mayer congratulates Mrs. Carrion-Kozak for having a dish that rose above all other entries,” said Samantha Gammell, senior associate brand manager, Oscar Mayer.  “Her ‘Tortilla Mama Luisa’ recipe is not only delicious but is an excellent representation on how you can integrate Oscar Mayer hot dogs into traditional everyday Latin dishes.”
