The contest on Chili Day lasts between February 23-26, and welcomes anyone interested to share what his or her favorite Mexican chili dish is. People get the chance to mingle with the community of Mexican expats, but also to win a mobile top up for a friend or a relative in Mexico who uses one of the networks there: Telcel, Iusacell, Nextel, Movistar or Unefon. Comments are expected on the Extrano Mexico Facebook page:

The contest theme is not randomly picked. Mexicans celebrate National Chili Day, or "Dia del chile" because chilis have such a rich tradition in Mexico. Dia del chile is one of those holidays that are inevitable in Mexico, since this culture abounds in chili stories, tales and myths. Chili spices up food, keeps it healthy and interesting, yet tests one's limits as well.

The prize will be announced just after the weekend, on February 27, and will consist of a top up to a mobile phone in Mexico. The top up is ready in seconds on since it is an online perfected process:

Mobile Recharge is the most popular service on, among the Mexican expats. International Mobile Recharges are instant and easy and help one send credit to a friend or family member in Mexico. Top ups say a lot about Mexicans' generosity towards people back home in Mexico, whose local communication they support by sending them local mobile credit from abroad. One of the reasons is also that the speed of the online tool makes the transactions almost instant. Promotions are very frequent for top ups, especially for mobile recharges to Movistar and Telcel.

The other two expat services faciliated by are Voice Credit and Virtual Number. Voice Credit is international calling credit that never expires, while Virtual Number is Mexican number one uses abroad to receive local calls from family and friends living back in Mexico.

With Voice Credit, also called Crédito de Voz, Mexicans abroad can call mobiles in Mexico at 1.9 cents/minute, and landlines there at 0.5 cents/minute, no matter the country they call from. The minimum purchase possible on is $2. This small amount brings 400 minutes to landlines or 105 minutes to mobiles in Mexico, or a mix of two.

The Virtual Number is also a very popular option for Mexican immigrants. They can get unlimited calls from Mexico as if they still lived there. For friends and family in Mexico who call the Virtual Number, costs are low, according to the local operator. In other words, they can call the person abroad on his or her Virtual Number at local rates. The cost of such a Virtual Number is $9.99 a month. But the service is flexible, it can be deactivated and reactivated any time according to one's needs.
