Restaurants in Santa Fe and ABQ with house-made flour tortillas?

Not only do I love freshly made flour tortillas in general; this seems to be an all-but-sure sign a restaurant is going to be great. Does anyone have any recs in Albuquerque or Santa Fe?
Places I already know and love:
* Frontier - very good, although I find them to go stale quickly.
* Taco Cabana - quite possibly my favorites. The recipe is clearly different than what the chain uses outside of New Mexico, with a deeper flavor and a less gummy texture. Their breakfast tacos are some of my favorite anywhere.
Funny, Los Potrillos was the very first restaurant we tried when we moved to Santa Fe, but I didn't get a dish with tortillas. Will definitely try it again.
There are now two two Bumblebees in Santa Fe too, one in town and one down Cerrillos a ways. I'd forgotten they made their tortillas fresh -- do they make the flour fresh, or just the corn? Unfortunately, I wasn't so sweet on the rest of their semi-healthy Mexican playbook, which struck me as rather bland. That said, I could easily have just ordered a little poorly; perhaps it's time for a second trip.
Duran's Central Pharmacy in downtown ABQ. Their tortillas meet my "must have" qualifications - the "I'm not a huge fan of X, but I couldn't stop eating X at this place!!!"
(Maybe that concept needs its own thread!) :-)
