I have always said, "It's in my blood." My father taught my mother to cook and both taught me! Besides I come from a family who own their own taqueria's (Taco stops), meat markets, restaurants in various parts of mexico and in Texas.
With recently being laid off in early 2016 and a single parent, I just knew it's do it now or regret it for the rest of my life! I moved back home to San Antonio. During this transition, I met my soul mate and husband now. We actually worked together for Bexar County a few years back. He was an I.T. Director and I worked in a different department as a Business Systems Analyst for Bexar County's I.T. Division.. He is one amazing person and thankful everyday!
He'd say how much he loved Mexican food and I replied, "You haven't had real Mexican food until you try my cooking."
What sparked a fire to get this off the ground was when my husband was laid off 3 days before Christmas the same year I was laid off. I mean, who does that? Who lays off people days before Christmas!
We started the food truck selling grilled chicken, breakfast (tacos, burritos, tortas), lunch (street tacos, tortas, quesadillas, etc.)and just like that La Consentida began. Tradition is our mission. Each meal we serve comes from our family to you. It really does! We decided to go with my father's pastor original recipe! Since it has been a true blessing!.
Many know our story, but if your new to following us here's a brief:
We opened our food truck in December 2016, a restaurant March 2017, closed the restaurant only 2.5 months later. My husband after having 3 near cardiac episodes had open heart surgery early May 2017. After much discussion we decided to close the restaurant. You know things always happen for a reason. We have much better plans. 1 step back --> 2 steps forward. To this we thank God for his redirection.
