Every year, the State Fair of Texas holds a contest to see which new foods will be offered to attendees when the fair opens. Among this year's entries hoping to tantalize Texan taste buds is a fried chili Frito burrito.

It's the third annual Big Tex Choice Awards contest, where seven new foods compete for top prize. Last year, fried Coke became a sensation at the fair.

Ron Black, senior vice president of food service and novelties for the fair, talks to host Liane Hansen.
