Description: The Tlaola community and its economic activities revolve around a nucleus of indigenous Nahua women who hold the secrets to processing the local products, primarily Serrano chilis. The seeds are sown between October and November and the chilis are harvested between April and May. The peppers are dried in the sun, then toasted artisanally and ground to obtain a condiment used to season traditional dishes. As well as chilis, the women of the community also grow coffee, tomatoes, corn, beans, blackberries and ornamental plants, which represent an important alternative source of income for the indigenous families.
