I’m from Texas and grew up going to restaurants where tortillas are made on site and you can buy great ones in any grocery store. I always wondered where the good corn tortillas were in Boston. I got my answer about 7 years ago when Michael Docter and his friend Jorge Sosa started up Mi Tierra Tortillas.
They had a great idea to grow corn and make tortillas, right in the same place. The corn is grown in Hadley. They dry it, nixtamalize it, bake it into tortillas twice a week. The tortillas are nutty and aromatic. When you make a taco, the tortilla contributes to the flavor profile instead of taking away from it.
If I haven’t convinced you to try these yet, we have a fun way for you to try them out, for free!
Just order a meal box for Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, and if you’re one of the first 300 boxes we pack, we’ll pop a 6-pack in your box. This is a gift from the folks at Mi Tierra. Huge thanks to Michael and Jorge for giving this gift to our meal boxers.
