Top Twenty Mexican Slang (Top Ten Mexican Slang Part 2)

The most popular post on this blog is Top Ten Mexican Slang. But for sure ten words don´t even scratch the surface of slang here in Mexico.

I hear these words every day. Unlike the original Top Ten Mexican Slang, in this post every word has a PG rating. Maybe PG-13.

Pinche

Pinche could have been in the original top ten. It translates to many words in English, damn for example, but only when used to describe something.

“¡Pinche coche!” – damn car

“Pinche Juan” – goddamn Juan

Mande

Mande is the Mexican way to ask what or excuse me, when you don’t understand what someone said. It can also be used like tell me.

“Estoy pedo, pero ya me tengo que ir a la chamba.”

“¿Neta?”

Ahorita

Ahora means now
