Our tortillas are made from REAL heriloom seed corn brought from Chihuahua, Mexico along with 2 other simple ingredients, water and hydrated lime. The corn is first cooked, then stone ground into a dough called masa. The dough is then cut, cooked, and cooled in our tortilla machines. Virtually all of the tortillas bought in store are made out of a powder mix filled with preservatives. We use the traditional ingredients and methods to get the best tasting tortilla for you. Blue corn, our signature ingredient, has 20% more protein than yellow or white corn and has the same antioxidants as blueberries (which is where the unique color comes from). These tortillas are more filling and nutritionally beneficial than your average store bought brand. Because our tortillas contain the skin of real corn, they are also more malleable and hold together better so you don't have a taco that falls apart! Cutting them up and putting the pieces into an air fryer or on the skillet can make some the best tortilla chips you have ever had.
The tortillas need to be refrigerated as soon as you receive them and are good for two weeks. The tortillas can also be frozen which is very helpful for our out of state customers. They will last months frozen with no quality deficiencies when thawed. Our tortillas are made to order and shipped fresh.
After being made and put into a deep freezer the tortillas will be shipped out in an insulated pack with an ice bag. 2 day FedEx express shipping is used to get you your tortillas in the fastest way possible. The tortillas may not be 100% frozen with a thawed ice bag but are still fine for consumption if they do not contain any pink spots. Feel free to message us with any additional questions or concerns!
In order to maintain optimal freshness, we ship our tortillas Mondays and Wednesdays. Once shipped, approximate delivery time is 2-4 business days (due to Covid-19).

How to Use
You can throw your tortillas in a cast iron skillet, warmed over medium-high heat, for about 15 to 30-ish seconds on each side. If the tortillas smell toasty, with a few browned or darkened spots, you're doing it right. You can also put a damp paper towel over them and microwave them for a few seconds.
Storage and use by
