— Don Eladio Vuente to Gus Fring

The Cartel was a Mexican drug trafficking organization from the TV show Breaking Bad and its prequel series Better Call Saul. The Cartel was primairly active in the Mexican states of Michoacán and Chihuahua. It was founded an lead by Eladio Vuente, Hector Salamanca, and Juan Bolsa. The Cartel was one of the most powerful in Mexico by distributing cocaine from the Colombian cartels.

The Cartel's leadership was one day approached by Gus Fring and Max Arciniega who proposed a partnership to manufacture and distribute meth through their restaurant chain, Los Pollos Hermanos. The Cartel agreed but was offended by the pair giving free samples of meth to their operatives, and Max was murdered by Don Hector. Gus swore revenge on the Cartel.

Decades later, Gus' organization grew in power in the United States through the sale of uniquely pure meth manufactured by Walter White. Gus also made plays to damage the Cartel's operations and take over their territory. One such move was tricking Leonel and Marco Salamanca, two of the Cartel's hitmen, into attacking Drug Enforcement Association agent Hank Schrader, resulting in the Mexican government cracking down on the Cartel and the death of Don Juan.

The Cartel struck back by attacking Gus's meth shipments and facilities, attempting to pressure Gus into giving his formula to the Cartel's chemists. Gus seemingly caved to the threats and traveled to Don Eladio's hacienda. Instead, Gus took the opportunity to murder Eladio and all his capos with poisoned tequila. Hector, the last survivor of the Cartel's leadership, conspired with Walter in a plot to kill Gus that ended with Hector and Gus both dying in an explosion. With its leaders all dead, the Cartel crumbled.
