These Trader Joe’s corn tortillas have a nice corn taste, are good for tacos, and hold up well when heated up. They have only 3 ingredients in them, far fewer than most national brands like Mission that use preservatives and things like guar gum. As a result, these don’t last more than a week or so before becoming slightly stale. There’s a bunch of different tortilla options at Trader Joe’s now, including corn and wheat tortillas, flour tortillas and handmade tortillas. I like to put a little bit of oil in a pan and crisp these up a bit before adding shrimp, chicken or steak. A little fresh lime and cilantro and you have a budget friendly and tasty meal………….

Corn Tortillas at Trader Joe’s
One of the conflicts I always have in the tortilla section is whether it’s worth it to buy the homemade tortillas that are a tad more pricey than the regular ones. Does anyone feel like one is worth it over the other? If people have a favorite tortilla that is their go to, I’d love to know. I know that some people look down on flour tortillas for maybe not being as authentic, but I still prefer the taste over corn tortillas. That being said, these taste really fresh and like real corn, so I do sometimes pick these up. One thing I’ve found is corn tortillas don’t always freeze as well as flour ones do. If I know I won’t be going through them quickly, I usually go with flour over corn. Has everyone had similar experiences if they try and freeze some tortillas and then heat them up?…..
