Coyotas in Guadalajara
It is the Bojórquez family who, with their own recipe, popularizes Coyotas in Guadalajara, when in 1966 Mrs. Lupita and Don Ramón, from Hermosillo, begin to produce and sell these delicacies.
Initially the sales of the Coyotas of the Bojórquez family are made through the well-known restaurant “Delicias de Sonoras”, of their property. Later, in response to the great demand for which they called themselves "The best Sonoran Coyotas of Guadalajara", they begin to be distributed in different establishments in the city and the country.
To this day, the Bojórquez Family recipe remains a secret and is only reproduced upon hearing of the descendants of Lupita and Ramón, who continue to preserve the excellent quality and artisanal manufacturing.
True to its Sonoran style and customs, Coyota is delicious accompanied by a rich coffee and a good talk. It is suggested to heat in comal or oven and enjoy it as if it was fresh from the oven.
