Corn tortillas are numerous and finding the best ones can sometimes become a mission of sorts. To help you find a fine set of tortillas, we have a couple of tips to keep in mind the next time you’re out shopping.
Examine the packaging. We don’t necessarily mean the design, either. If it’s visible, check the packing date to see how fresh the tortillas are. The closer it is, the fresher they are. If the tortillas were packaged somewhere nearby, there are better odds the tortillas have not dried out on their way to the store.
Get a feel for the tortillas. Grab the tortilla package and gently feel them. Upon flexing the package, your tortillas should be able to bend without any of them sticking together. That’s one way to ensure your tortillas are nice and fresh. The package should also be free of moisture and there should be no hard or cracked edges on any of the tortillas.
Consider the store. You’re much more likely to find better tasting—and more authentic—tortillas if you purchase them from a Latin market or at least a store that has an aisle dedicated to Hispanic food products.
