Although this drink is Mexican and origin it can be found commonly in states such as California, New Mexico, and Illinois. In some areas, it is also known as a chamango.
One of my first experiences with picante sauce was when I ordered a breakfast burrito when my family went out to eat. They provide a small packet of picante sauce with the burritos, which adds a little spice to your meal.
