Salvador and Aracelli Hurtado

Tacos Las Salsas has been crossing the streets of Western Connecticut for more than four years. Tacos, enchiladas, burritos and guacamole are some of the treats that Mexican food lovers can find in this colorful truck. Besides using authentic Mexican flavors in all their dishes, they are also infused with the patience and hard work that Salvador and Aracelli Hurtado have put in to achieve all their dreams and goals in the United States of America.

Salvador Hurtado was 18 years old and about to graduate as an electro-technician in Mexico but after hearing numerous success stories of friends and family that were doing well in the United States, he felt an impulse that made him leave everything behind and follow suit.

From the very first day of work, Salvador found out that his life as an immigrant in this country was not the beautiful picture that his friends used to describe to him. His first job as a landscaper bestowed on him bloody hands as a consequence of using tools he was not familiar with. His pride never let him go back to his country permanently, as his mother insisted, so that he could finish his studies.
