OUR STORY

Our passion is honouring the ancient culinary traditions of Mexico. Honouring real food, made with real ingredients & no shortcuts. We invite you to taste for yourself how good real Mexican can be!

OUR PRODUCTS

We make corn tortillas staying true to the ancient Aztec recipe. That’s why our corn tortillas taste just like the ones made in the villages of Mexico. Check out our range of tortillas, tortilla chips & tostadas to buy at a grocery store or wholesaler near you.

MADE USING THE ANCIENT NIXTAMAL METHOD

“Stepping into fresh nixtamalised corn tortillas is just incomparable to any other product that we’ve seen, and here at Mamasita we’ll certainly never go back.”

Andrew Logan - Former Head Chef, Mamasita

“La Tortilleria provide an exceptional level of authenticity and freshness in their tortillas. As the product is made from fresh ground corn, the texture, flavour, freshness and nutritional quality in the product is unrivalled.”

Tim McDonald - Co-founder & Owner, Fonda Mexican Restaurants

“The best and most authentically flavoured Mexican foods in Australia… truly world-class and in a league of their own: uniquely-ancient, delicious and a prerequisite for the serious foodies, chefs and restauranteurs.”

Paul Wilson - Chef, restaurant founder & author of 'Cantina' & 'Taqueria' Mexican recipe books

“We love La Tortilleria tortillas… Fantastic service, we couldn’t make great tacos without them. We are so grateful to have access to these beautiful tortillas made from fresh masa.”

Kathy Reed - Executive Chef, Mesa Verde

“I truly believe you will not find a better tortilla this side of Mexico… I have recommended La Tortilleria to many of my chef friends and have never had any argument that they are absolutely the best. I highly recommend them.”

Mark Santos - Head Chef, Captain Melville

While tacos get the majority of attention, there's much more to Mexican food than tacos! 🌮⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chalupas are one of the most common street 'antojitos' (=snacks) in the state of Puebla. 🌽 Small corn tortillas fried in manteca (lard), topped with salsa roja, salsa verde or mole poblano, plus onion & shredded pork or chicken. Then spoon some extra manteca over the top just to make it extra healthy 🐽😆 Finally they are finished with a sprinkling of queso fresco 👌🏾 ¡Riquisimo! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are several origin stories for this dish: some say Poblano friars invented it. Others say they are the result of street vendor entrepreneurialism: a low-cost feed for the workers of the first textile factory in Mexico, La Constancia. Whatever the answer, there's no disputing that they are quintessentially Poblano 🇲🇽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This rich coloured red corn is called Bloody Butcher and is one of many varieties of heirloom corn being grown around the world, with efforts underway across the world to continue to grow these ancient varieties that are full of colour and flavour🌈⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The real question on everyone's mind is whether they would make a good tortilla? 🤔

The state of Oaxaca has arguably the best food in Mexico (wooaahh, big claim! Go on, fire us your counter-claim comments! 😂). From mole to tlayudas, mezcal to tejate, chilhuacle to hoja santa, Oaxaca has many dishes, drinks and ingredients not commonly found elsewhere in the country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why is this? 🤷🏽‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oaxaca is a mountainous region that to this day has one of the largest indigenous populations in Mexico. Because of this, a lot of the ancient culinary methods and ingredients have remained intact and passed down from generations before, with less interference from invading Spaniards and modern methods than other parts of Mexico. This along with its unique and fertile environment makes Oaxacan food culture one of the most interesting in Mexico. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We do have burritos in Mexico, but they're quite different to what many Australians think of as a burrito 🇲🇽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Firstly they're either:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(a) a baby donkey (the literal meaning of 'burrito' in Spanish)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(b) a dish found in some areas of the north of Mexico: beef or beans wrapped in a small wheat tortilla. 🌯⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Both are quite different from the foil wrapped, rice, beans, meat and salads creations popular all over the US and now Australia.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Asking for a burrito in most parts of Mexico might yield unexpected results! 🤣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Blue and purple corn tortillas are almost as common in Mexico as the usual white corn tortillas. In Australia, we’re so used to just our single variety of yellow corn that it’s hard to imagine the many many varieties of corn colours that exist – including red, black, green, blue, purple, white, yellow and multi-coloured cobs. 🌈🌽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Talyudas are a popular street food in Oaxaca ~ starting with a large corn tortilla, spread with frijoles refritos, talyudas are lightly fried or baked until just slightly crispy as a base. Add your favourite carne, vegetables and cheese before going back into the oven until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is perfectly crisp. Add your favourite salads on top and avocado to complete the dish 🥑
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Oaxaca you can find them everywhere in the already prepared food stalls, and you only have to choose the meat, or the famous Oaxaca cheese 🧀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
¡Que Rico! 😋
