On the last day of Hispanic Heritage Month, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is pandering to Latino voters (but hey, we’ll take it). During a campaign stop in San Antonio on Thursday, she reached her full La Hillary potential, and it’s better than the Jeb Bush-approved molcajete known as the Guaca Bowle.

Here are six highlights from her visit to the land of Selena:


She played "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom."

“Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” one of Selena’s most iconic songs, was used as La Hillary’s walk-out music, according to Fusion. And there was apparently a lot of Selena.


Sebastien De La Cruz sang the national anthem.

Sebastien De La Cruz, the young mariachi who had racist comments directed his way after singing the National Anthem during Game 3 of the 2013 NBA Finals, was back and suited up for Clinton.


Julian Castro introduced her.

Julian Castro has endorsed La Hillary, sparking rumors that he may be her running mate, which yes, please do that. Today, he introduced her by saying, “In 2016, the Latino community is going to play a critical role in electing our president.” Fusion reports that he also spoke Spanish, and the crowd went wild.


La Hillary addressed DREAMers.

Clinton said she plans to stand up for DREAMers, regardless of what it takes. “I will defend President Obama’s executive actions,” she said. “[I will] stand up against any effort to deport DREAMers and if Congress still refuses to act I will go even further.”


She ate a lot of green enchiladas.


This happened.
