My name is Sophie Abell. I am a native Texan, born in Uvalde, Tx., south of San Antonio and I lived in Fort Worth most of my life.
In June 2006 I moved to Noblesville, In. to marry my love. I come from a large family of six. I love to create new dishes in the kitchen and share my creations with my family and others.
While growing up, I was constantly in the kitchen learning to cook and help my mother make many authentic Mexican family meals. The love I have for cooking and entertaining I received from my dad. He would greet our guests into our home and head straight into the kitchen to prepare a meal for them.
What is known as “Sophie’s Salsa,” I received the recipe from a lady from Mexico many years ago. I sold my salsa for 20 years in Texas. The salsa is “award-winning” in two categories at the Noblesville Farmer’s Market Salsa Contest in the Fall of 2006, in both the HOT and Medium categories!
In 2018, Sophie’s Salsa won first place in the Salsa For Salsa competition at Federal Hill Commons for Cinco de Mayo, beating out thirteen other restaurants and catering companies.
I learned how to make homemade tamales from my mother. She made traditional pork tamales. Texy Mexy offers not only pork but also chicken tamales, queso blanco & green chiles, black bean and corn, roasted butternut squash, among others.
When you’re looking for Noblesville Mexican restaurants, we hope you’ll stop by our downtown store and give us a try.
