The Flavors from Mexico's Pacific coast

In 1992 Javier Hernández and his wife Huralia, a couple from Guerrero, a state on Mexico’s Pacific coast, wanted to bring to the community flavors from their hometown and founded one Mexican Food truck plus one Paletas Truck.

Due to their previous success, they opened Pozoleria Guerrero in 2002, which later changed its name to Pozoleria Mexican Food that continues under their administration with the same homemade seasoning.

Pozoleria Mexican Food serves different authentic Mexican Food with the Guerrero seasoning, from Burritos, Tortas, Tacos, Menudo, Chimichangas, Enchiladas and Caldos.

Pozoleria Mexican Food specialty is the Pozole! It comes in three different colors white, green, or red. It’s a delicious, tender mixture of pork meat, hominy corn, topped off with avocados, radishes, lemons, onions, cilantro, and a crunchy piece of tostadas on the side.

Pozole comes from the Náhuatl pozolli which means foam; Because the corn kernels are large and white (also called Cacahuazintle or blowout); when boiling, they open like a flower creating a foam.

The Pozole is one of the most popular foods consumed during the Mexican National Holidays or the celebration of an event such as a birthday, holy wedding, or baptism. It can be eaten “white,” that is, without adding chili, and “red” or “green” when everything has been cooked with chili and the broth takes this color.

They use fresh ingredients, cook their beans from scratch, and use seasonings imported from Mexico to guarantee their flavor and quality. Because of this, Pozoleria Mexican Food has been recognized as “Best Pozole” several times in different Phoenix publications.

Pozoleria Mexican Food is also committed to serving the community through tangible contributions such as donations to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society®.
