Tortillas are the basic ingredient of many traditional Mexican dishes such as tacos, enchiladas or quesadillas.
A tortilla is a thin, unleavened (no yeast), flat bread made from either wheat or maize. Both are authentic – it only depends in which part of Mexico you are: North or South.
Corn tortillas are made from finely ground maize that has been cooked in lime water through a process called Nixtamalization. The Nixtamalization process was invented by the Aztec’s civilization thousands of years ago.
In Azteca, our corn tortillas are manufactured following a traditional recipe that uses ‘Maseca’ – also known as Masa Harina. This flour is the dried version of the cooked maize.
