Heirloom Corn Tortillas

from 3.00

3 Ingredients. Fresh-Pressed. No Shortcuts.

Masienda is proud to collaborate with La Princesita, a third-generation, family-run tortillería in Los Angeles, to bring you our Masienda Bodega heirloom corn tortillas. These tortillas are made the old-fashioned way, no shortcuts: Masienda's whole-kernel olotillo corn is gently cooked and slowly steeped in water and slaked lime (cal). This ancient, Mesoamerican preparation, known as nixtamalization, is key to imparting calcium and activating the essential amino acids and vitamin B3 found naturally in each kernel (making corn an O.G. superfood). Each batch is then stone ground, freshly pressed and baked before becoming a perfect, true tortilla.

We love the light nuttiness, natural oils and toasted corn flavor of these tortillas. They work fantastically for tacos, but are versatile enough to use in almost any Mexican preparation. Our tortillas ship in bundles of 7 or 14 packs, with ten tortillas to a pack. To maintain freshness, all of our tortillas ship frozen via FedEx 2 Day for a base rate of $25. For larger orders, shipping costs will increase based on total weight.


Because Masienda Bodega tortillas are produced entirely without artificial preservatives, they are best maintained in the refrigerator (10-14 days) or frozen (up to 3 months). We recommend keeping a pack in the refrigerator and freezing whatever you will not use immediately. 


If frozen, allow the tortillas to defrost in the refrigerator. Pre-heat a non-stick pan or skillet over high heat. Heat tortilla for 20 to 30 seconds per side, until soft and hot. Wrap hot tortillas in a clean kitchen towel to keep warm throughout your meal. 

(For extra softness, rub each side of the tortilla lightly with water, before reheating.)


Our tortillas ship frozen in insulated boxes with cold packs to maintain temperature. We ship tortillas for a base rate of $25. For larger orders, or for orders that include other products, shipping may increase based on total weight. All tortilla orders are shipped via FedEx 2 Day to ensure freshness. The tortillas may arrive slightly thawed and should be refrigerated or frozen immediately upon arrival. For orders larger than 14 packs, please email bodega@masienda.com
