How it all began

Jennifer Teutli & the inspiration behind Mexican Spice

Born and raised in Mexico City, I have always had a passion for authentic Mexican food and when I moved to Chatham, New Jersey, over 10 years ago, I searched and searched (without luck) for a good healthy place where my family and I could taste the flavors of Mexico whenever we got homesick.

Disappointed with my local findings, I decided to start my own little business catering to my friends and neighbors.

Business took off amazingly! In a matter of 5 years I went from making Salsa Verde in my own kitchen, to setting up a professional kitchen, growing the team (or better said, building a team), participating in local Farmers Markets and catering countless events and parties.

You can find Mexican Spice at two brick and mortar locations, one in Summit and one in Madison, NJ, and have plans to continue growing. Oh and did I mention the super-chic-amazing-fun-classy-fabulous Food Truck? Mexican Spice has a Food Truck which is the cutest little thing and we take it around New Jersey to cater special events like birthdays, weddings, and of course, to the local Food Truck Festivals.

I am passionate about the Mexican culture, the infinite flavors, colors and traditions, and I love that I am able to share “A little taste of Mexico” with the community.
