’‘ricachon’’ in spanish.

the word for rich is rico, and when you put ’‘achon’’ or ’‘azo’’ or ’‘aco’’ at the end of the word, it means to imply big or more. so ricachon is kind of like ’‘big fat cat’’ or something along those lines.

you could also say ’‘forrado’’ meaning wrapped, as if you are wrapped in the money. the opposite would be ’‘pelado’’ meaning skinned.

note: spain spanish, not mexican spanish
