Aaron Sanchez is no stranger to foodies. The award-winning celebrity chef and native Texan is known for his bold Latin flavors and easygoing charm.

Sanchez is hitting the road to help Cacique, the largest brand of Hispanic cheeses in the United States, mark its 40th anniversary. The chef and the Cacique 40th Food Truck Tour will make a Houston stop 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Friday at the Montrose H-E-B, 1701 W. Alabama.

The food truck will sell menu items created by Sanchez, including Tostadas with Cacique Chorizo and Chile de Arbol Salsa and Shrimp Aguachile Tostaditas.

All proceeds from food sales will go to the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, a nonprofit that supports higher education.
