I grew up in TorreĆ³n, Coahuila Mexico. I was a student for a few years in the USA during middle and high school to learn better English. I also attended the University of Texas in San Antonio for 2 years. Today I go back and forth from Piedras Negras where I have my business, to my house in San Antonio. In between I try to do as much fishing and gardening as I can.

Season with salt and a pinch of Knorr Suiza(Mexican favorite) chicken stock powder.

I have catarina seeds and pods from the markets of central and southern Mexico, since I haven't found them in northern Mexico and they are my favorite dried chile.
