Heat Pressed Flour Tortillas
La Canasta “Pressed Tortillas” are Thicker to withstand heavy fillings and have a higher moisture content that creates a fluffy and durable tortilla. They are seared on the exterior surface during the cooking process, which captures and seals the moisture inside the tortilla.
Whole Kernel Corn Tortillas
La Canasta “Corn Tortillas” are still made from meaty whole kernel corn, cooked from scratch and steeped for several hours to absorb the rich corn flavor. We grind the kernels using the old fashioned stones that are hand carved for the perfect grind and consistency required to make authentic corn tortillas.

Corn Tortilla Chips Uncooked
Most uncooked raw tortilla chips come in two types of cuts, 4-cut and 6-cut. La Canasta recommends 4-cut tortilla chips because it offers four distinct benefits compared to 6-cut tortilla chips; volume and presence in the chip basket and less chips per serving, less breakage, made low in moisture, creating lower oil absorption and authentic whole kernel corn flavor all of these benefits lead to cost savings, satisfied customers and repeat sales.
