When we first opened our tortillaria, we were advised to get a crew in early and to pump out a full days supply of tortillas and chips, stock our shelves, and shut the system down. But if we followed that advice we would be going directly against our motto “Authentically Fresh”. So instead, we did the exact opposite…..ran the tortilla oven as slow as possible so that we could have warm tortillas available for our customers throughout the day. Well, over the years we have had to steadily speed the tortilla oven up as demand increased. Today you can come in and see exactly what goes into our famous tortillas (which is one reason we put the tortilleria out on the sales floor).

You could also stop by the Redlands Ranch Market today to see how we make our famous tortillas!
In addition to our corn tortillas, we also offer flour tortillas. Staying true to our passion for preserving tradition, our flour tortillas are made from an authentic recipe.
Our southwest recipe uses vegetable shortening instead of animal shortening. The reason behind using vegetable shortening is because it has more density which enables it to hold up better on a grill.
Along with delicious, authentic, made-from-scratch corn and flour tortillas, we also have tortilla chips, masa for tortillas, masa preparada (ready to use for making tamales), tostadas, taco shells, Doritos, and pork skin “cracklins.”
You don’t need to wait until Christmas to get your tamale fix around here. We use very minimal preservatives in our products so they can’t be left in the pantry for weeks. They’re made to be enjoyed within a few days for the best food experience for you and your family.
Many local restaurants use the Redlands Ranch Market chips and tortillas for their authenticity compared to other places and manufacturers. We feel that these established relationships are a testament to our commitment to great ingredients and authentic methods. If you need fresh tortillas, or other related products, the Redlands Ranch Market is your one-stop-shop!
