Buying Tips

Buy tortillas in the bakery section, bread aisle, or refrigerated- or frozen-food sections of most health food and grocery stores. Choose the whole-grain variety whenever possible.


Tortillas are made from whole-wheat, white, or corn flour (masa), and come in various sizes. Some may contain flavors, like spinach or red pepper.
