EstebanHi Guys,

I’m Esteban, (Ehsteve, Teban, and Steve are all fine too) and I currently live in Southern California. I received a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations with a Minor in Graphic Design from Humboldt State University, and I currently work in PR/Digital Marketing during the day.

I decided to start Chicano Eats because I’m proud of my roots, and I’d like to invite you to experience un pedacito de mi cultura and traditions through food. No seriously, mi abuelita would kill me if I made tacos and didn’t offer you any.

As a Chicano (or Mexican-American) I have the privilege of being part of two completely different cultures, and I hope you get to enjoy recetas I grew up with and stories from my experience as a queer Chicano. I also invite you to join the conversation and share yours with me!
