Some of History

Francisco I. Madero proposed through the San Luis Plan to take up arms on November 20, 1910 to overthrow the dictatorship of Porfirio Díaz. Surprisingly, on November 14, in the town of Cuchillo Parado, Toribio Ortega and a group of locals took up arms, starting the revolt six days earlier than planned. Abraham González, a native of Ciudad Guerrero, Chihuahua, was ready to lead the revolutionary movement, and circumstances allowedThey united the ideology of freedom and social justice with the actions of those who would later become generals. Over time, several towns joined the uprising, and six months later, it culminated in the resignation of Porfirio Díaz in Ciudad Juárez.



The cowboy food of Chihuahua stands out for its authenticity and simplicity, with dishes such as the "asado de wedding", which is marinated meat cooked in a pit, and the traditional carne asada, where they gather around a spit with touches of oregano. These culinary practices are rooted in the region and reflect rural and cowboy life.
