“I can remember running around my grandparents’ house in Chixchulub with all my cousins,” said Sueño Executive Chef Jorge Guzman. “All of the sudden a huge platter of taquitos de cochinita would arrive out of the kitchen and we all stop what we’re doing to grab handfuls of tacos. I remember biting into them and watching the golden, orange grease dripping down my elbows. It’s one of the fondest memories I have.”
