Yeyo’s El Alma De Mexico Special Recipe

We at New American Economy are so excited to have Rafael Rios joining us Tuesday, May 5, for a very special and exclusive demo on our Instagram Live in celebration of Cinco De Mayo!

Rafael is the Executive Chef, Founder, and CEO of Yeyo’s El Alma De Mexico. Yeyo’s is named after Rafael’s father Hector, who had the nickname “Yeyo,” and Michoacán, the state in Mexico in which Rafael was raised. Michoacán is often referred to as the soul (or “alma” in Spanish) of Mexico.

Rafael founded Yeyo’s in 2012 and has been serving authentic Mexican cuisine in Arkansas ever since.
