Ron Jackson's 'Love Redemption Tacos and Tortillas'
go to original
September 29, 2015

Addiction can happen where ever a man lives, so Salvador's addiction isn't the real story. It's the story of a man who at 6 was begging on the streets of Guadalajara at 6, homeless at 13, a wetback in his twenties and should have been dead before 30. Instead, with the love of his wife Maria, her unwillingness to give up, and help from a wich doctor in Ajijic, Salvador found redemption. Miracles continued, and today sober for 25 years we find Salvador and Maria as owners of a popular restaurant in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico. (Ron Jackson)

Love Redemption Tacos and Tortillas: The Salvador and Maria Story
by Ron W. Jackson
Check it out on

The Salvador and Maria story is a love story, a love which lives only because of Maria's love, courage, and determination to bring Salvador back home to Mexico. Salvador's story might seem to be the same as the stories of thousands of Mexicans, but a closer look, tells you Salvador is not an "Every Man's Mexican".

The story of Ajijic's popular restaurateurs is the story of Salvador's trials and triumphs, of finding love, of begging on the streets of Guadalajara at 6, of beating death, not once but many times and of his deadly addiction to alcohol. It's the story of Maria, who refuses to give up on Salvador, even while suffering the indignities and pain Salvador's addiction is causing.

The love she has for Salvador, is what gave her the strength and courage to continue her fight to save Salvador. Alcohol besets many people and only a few are lucky enough to have the love and trust it takes to find help and redemption, even should it be from a very unlikely source.

Come, meet Salvador and Maria, Salvador the story teller, Maria the mother and cook, Salvador the man, now sober for over 20 years, the man, who after reading his story, will leave you wondering why he is not dead. Salvador and Maria, owners, along with their sons, Salvador and Moses, of Tio Domingos restaurant in Ajijic, will be happy to welcome you as family.

Woven throughout the book, is a look into the Mexico very few, North of the Border, have ever seen, but maybe after the read, will want to.
