This is not your typical boring, bland beef jerky. This is tender, air-dried steak with flavor as bold as a horse with a red saddle fighting a bull. It’s time to bring the heat to the jerky aisle. It’s time for Vacadillos.

Translated to English, carne seca means “DRY MEAT” and is popular in Latin America and specifically Northern Mexico.

Carne Seca is steak that is sliced, seasoned with various spices and flavors, including chiles and lime, air-dried, and sliced into lean strips. In Latin cultures, it is eaten as a snack AND used in cooking.

We think jerky needs to go. It’s bland and full of sugar and preservatives. If it’s not spongy and wet, it’s too dry and hard to chew. We’re over it.

So, we created Vacadillos Carne Seca, jerky’s sexy new neighbor. We believe bland is boring, and Vacadillos is ready to spice things up!

    I've never had carne seca, but I am now hooked! The spices are just right and the tenderness of the meat is more than I was expecting. I've shared my sample pack with a few others and they are hooked as well and are ordering their own! I can't say that I have a favorite, because I like them both! That reminds me that I need to place another order!

    Some damn good carne seca!

    The chile lime flavor is good but oh man I couldn’t put the habanero jerky down, too good! Gotta get a hit again!

    The quality is excellent, the taste is excellent! It is pricy, but I guess I can see why with the process and all. Although I do love the product, I probably will not purchase it again because of the price.

    Vacadillos are good, but the habanero needed more heat. They are a tasty snack to have around.
