ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A hit FoodNetwork show is looking for contestants from the Albuquerque and Santa Fe area.

The best part is that participants don’t have to be a professional chef. “Chopped” is looking for amateurs, anyone from grandmas to tailgaters, to butchers and politicians.

The show puts four people against each other with a basket full of surprise ingredients.

The winner gets $10,000.
