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?…..

Corn tortillas will be okay in freezer if you put parchment or wax paper between them so they don’t stick together.
