Maria y Ricardo's

Maria y Ricardo's has changed their recipe for flour tortillas to appeal to the big chains, but I know that they still make the old style. Anybody know where to get them?

  1. I was just thinking about this terrible, terrible problem and wondering if I should contact the company. First, though, I will try Hi-Lo in JP. I'll post the results.

      Somewhere in a coat pocket I have a number to call - probably just the factory. You're supposed to ask for the tortillas that "Carl delivers." They'll ship UPS.

        That is great to know. Meanwhile, haven't got to Hi-Lo yet--but we HAVE found them at Harvest Co-op in JP! Who knows how long the Co-op will stay on Carl's route--but for now, there they are.

        Finally got to Hi-Lo and I can confirm that they have them--they had piles of them today.

      3. I had no idea about this..what is the difference between the two recipes? I used to get them at WF, but they have phased them out and replaced them with their own brand, which I don't care for.

          The old ones were thin and had a slight sheen to them. They tended to stick together - the reason the new owners changed the recipe. The new ones are much thicker and doughy, for lack of a better word.

        2. I picked up some whole wheat at Kurkmans Market on Cypress St in Brookline on Saturday.( this is where I first discovered MyR about 5 years ago) but have yet to eat one. The reason i went for the whole wheat was that the regular white flour tortillas had a stiff feeling I didn't like. Perhaps they were the new style?

            yes, that's the new style. it's like every other commercial tortilla, doughy and stiff.
