Laura Tellez is the epitome of the saying, “Behind every successful man is a strong woman.” Laura showed her love to her family through her cooking- delicious tacos on Tuesdays, caldo on Thursdays, Fridays were famous for enchiladas, and she made the most awesome sopapillas when it snowed. There will never be anyone who can make rice as delicious as Grandma’s rice!

Vargas of El Paso, TX, three sisters- Emma Mercado of El Paso, TX, Alicia Rivera of Norwalk, CA, and Estella Provencio of Los Angeles, CA, and one brother, Manuel Vargas of El Paso, TX.
