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

Food has changed A LOT in the last century. And so has our health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With the introduction of preservatives, pesticides, GMO and new industrialised production methods, a lot of what makes it to our into the fridge and pantry would be unrecognisable to our great-grandparents. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But we have hope that this is changing. We're seeing a resurgence of 'real food'. Like it used to be: preservative-free, grown locally, and non-GMO - even within our own supermarkets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You are what you eat: so be real, pure, and not full of 💩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
😁 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🇲🇽 Grab your tequila and matraca and cry ‘¡Viva México! …because today is Mexico’s Independence Day! 🇲🇽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The 16th of September marks the day when the fight for independence from Spain officially began in 1810. Father Miguel Hidalgo, the local priest from Dolores, rang his church bells and urged the masses to revolt. This moment, known as the ‘Grito de Dolores’ (Cry of Dolores), is re-enacted every year by the Mexican president on the balcony of the National Palace in Mexico City, as the crowds below cry back ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México! ¡Viva México!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No matter where we are in the world, us Mexicans always celebrate this important historic moment. Usually, it’s with all our amigos and familia singing along with the mariachis whilst having some pozole and watching fireworks. Although this year will be a more ‘socially-distanced-style’ solo celebration, not even a global pandemic can stop our national pride! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This mural, 'Retablo de la Independencia' by Juan O'Gorman, is displayed in the National History Museum in Mexico City. It depicts the struggles for independence and the birth of the new 'Mexico' - from 1765 to 1836.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Think 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo) is Mexico's independence day? Think again! 🙅🏽‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you want to have a Mexican party, 16th September is the day to do it! Why? Because contrary to what many believe, '5 de Mayo' is not a big party day in Mexico, and it certainly isn't Independence Day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
May 5th, it's the day the Mexican army defeated the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, but it's a far cry from the poncho-wearing, tequila-shooting, maraca-shaking, cultural-misappropriation 'fiesta' that many outside of Mexico think it is 🤦🏽‍♂️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's a day we're proud of, and an important occasion to recognise the contribution Mexican culture has had on the world. We like to celebrate it for what it actually is, not what US marketing companies want it to be, so they can sell more tequila and cervezas!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
16 de Septiembre on the other hand, now THAT's a fiesta! 🎉🎆 It marks the day Mexico gained our independence from Spain in 1810, this is a day when the country stops and we all celebrate! 🥳🎇⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

💚 Recipe Highlight 💚⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's back to basics for one of the cornerstones of Mexican cuisine, Salsa Verde Cruda (Fresh Green Salsa) 💃🏽⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Made with tomatillos (Mexican husk tomato), this salsa uses just 6 ingredients and takes only 10 minutes to make, it brings great flavour and freshness to almost everything. We love it on carna asada, tostadas or chilaquiles, but the possibilities are only limited by your imagination 💡⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have you tried our Blue Totopos? We've been asked again if these are made of chocolate 🧐 so we're going on the record... they are most definitely made of corn 🌽 💙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Blue corn is one of several main types of corn used in Mexican cooking, the unique blue colour comes from Anthocyanins, an antioxident that's also found in wine and berries 🍷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The taste is a little sweeter than our white corn totopos, but we think everyone should give them a try them to find out for themselves. You know, for science! 👨🏽‍🔬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#FlashbackFriday⚡️circa August 2012. Co-Founder Diana, aka 'the aspirational Taquera', trying her hand at al pastor tacos during her first 'trompo' operation lesson. She had ...and still has... a loooong way to go before mastering the 'flick-the-meat-into-the-air-&-catch-it-in-a-tortilla' trick 🌮 Keep at it Taquera! 💪 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It may be delicious, but it's not Mexican! 🙅🏽‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
FACT: Fajitas originated in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, USA 🇺🇸. The name 'fajitas' (meaning 'little strips') is believed to have appeared around the 1930's, and became popular in the 1970's when it began appearing on menus of "Mexican" restaurants across the USA. Tex-Mex food, you've tricked the world again! 🤥😬😏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What Mexico has is MUCH MORE delicious (...we're a tad bias 😉😊) = Carne Asada. This literally just means 'grilled meat', but the culture around carne asada in Mexico goes much deeper than that. It's like the Mexican equivalent of the Aussie BBQ ...i.e. it's a big deal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having carne asada means grilled meats like arrachera, plus nopales (cactus) and cebollitas de cambray all grilling away over hot coals, served up with hot corn tortillas, and eaten with family and friends (and usually some cervezas y tequilas too 🍻). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
