La Reina Tortillas 12cm 500g
Known as tlaxcalli in ancient times, it has been a staple food in ancient Mexico since 3,500 years ago.
Tortillas are still a must in almost every Mexican family meal, dipped in sauces or to make tacos.
The nixtamalization process that tortillas go through significantly enriches the nutritional value of maize as a source of vitamins, minerals (calcium) and protein.
How to use them:
Tortillas can be used to prepare assorted types of tacos, such as regular tacos, golden tacos (fried until crispy), flautas (flutes rolled taquitos, looking like thin flutes). When cut into triangles and fried they become totopos (tortilla chips) to prepare chilaquiles with sauce or just to be dipped in cheese or guacamole. When cut in strips, they are used to make tortilla soup, a delicious hot soup with an authentic flavour.
How to warm them:
Open the package, warm them on a pan. When warmed in microwave, put some in a lightly damp clean cloth, put inside a plastic bag and warm for approx. 30 seconds.
Each package contains 24 tortillas on average.
Store in a cool, dry place. Once opened, refrigerate in a sealed container for a maximum of two days.
