Bring the cheese to her, then when you have to get beans, talk to the woman carrying something on her head just underneath and to the left of Isbela’s Kitchen and take them back to the old woman.

Hidden Trophy – El Savior (Gold)
- Access the Alternate Ending
Since I didn’t know what this trophy was at the time, and I collected the orbs on my own without marking them down, here’s a description of how to unlock this rather difficult trophy, courtesy of PS3Trophies:
Orb 1- This orb is found in Juan’s home where you start out at in the very beginning of the game. You must have the headbutt and ability to turn into a chicken unlocked. Walk into his house and headbutt the yellow block. Go through that space and you will come to an area with some hunched over dude warning you about a maze up ahead. The maze is quite large and it requires a little bit of time to traverse to. Most diverging paths will have a dead end right away and won’t make you travel aimlessly forever. When you have completed the maze you will find a portal to some odd place. Simply walk to the right and you will get the first orb.
Orb 2- This one can be found at the top of the Tree of Life through a secret way up. Go through the entire tree until you eventually fall straight down on the left. You will see a blue block covering up an entrance right above you. Break the block by using your wall glide. Jump up where the wall was blocking and run up the wall to the very top of the tree. You will reach an area called the Branches. This is where is gets hard. You must get through difficult platforming stages to make it to the very top. Most will take probably around 10-20 tries to complete. When you reach the top you will find a sarcastic chicken and a portal. Go through the portal and you will find the next orb.
Orb 3- This orb is found in an area called the Caverna del Pollo. This can be reached by going to the very bottom right of Santa Luchita. In this place you must make your way through three challenges. Each challenge has ten waves of enemies. None of them are too hard if you are going for this after you have beaten the game. When you beat the third challenge you will drop down onto a cliff with a portal. Go through it to find yet another orb.
Orb 4- The next one can be found in the Sierra Mountains. This one is a little hard to explain, but I’ll do my best. Towards the beginning you will come to an area with cacti throwing things at you. Go over to the wall on the left and wall glide to the right out of that mountain. If you did it correctly you should fly straight to a platform with a portal on it. Go through the portal and get the next orb.
Orb 5- This next one will require a lot of speed. Go to the Forest del Chivo and find the skull switch underneath a hill to the upper right of the area. Hit the switch and then exit to the left. Climb up the mountain that you were just under and glide off the higher step to the left. You will hit a block with spikes ontop of it. If you did it fast enough you will fall down into an area with dozens of chickens and another portal. Go through the portal to find the orb.
Orb 6- This orb will automatically be obtained after beating the final boss.
