A local favorite for over 20 years is changing hands!!
Mexico based Mission Foods has purchased the Albuquerque Tortilla Company!! The horror!!
Having grown up primarily in the west I've tasted many tortillas and Albuquerque Tortilla Company, in my humble opinion, makes the best.
One thing I have noticed about 'national' brand tortillas is that they are thinner and larger than the Albuquerque Tortilla brand, my guess is that the larger/thinner ones make for better burritos.
Albuquerque Tortilla Co's are more like mom's. A little thicker and chewier. Slap some butter on there and heat it up and ooooh man... makes for a good late night snack! Peanut butter and jelly, de-lish! And nothing beats them when served with red chili and pork.
Ok, I'm hungry now.
I've tried Mission Tortillas. Eh.. less said the better.
