Where can I buy some flour tortillas made with lard?

I've been searching for a long time now. I first had them in Porto Nuevo in Baja. They served it with the lobsters fried in lard also. But the tortillas were soft, chewy, fluffy, and rich. Delicious.

Is there anywhere in the bay area that makes or serves these tortillas?

Thanks for any help.

  1. Have you tried Mi Pueblo markets?
    Another thread had a possibility.
    Tortilleria Jalisco

    Sonoma, ca 95476-6414

    1. Did you ever find any of these? I also got addicted to lard-y flour tortillas in Baja (in San Felipe) and all I can find are places that seem proud NOT to use lard. :(

      1. No luck yet with lard tortillas. I did find a good source for making them yourself.

        Looks like if I want good tortillas, I'm going to have to make them myself. Not too bad considering most of the work is just getting the recipe and technique right.

        1. A fellow hound introduced me recently to La Palma. They makesand sell flour tortillas, both with and without lard. Both types are soft, flaky and delicious; the non-lard ones are flakier. The ones made with lard are chewier; I like them better. They are on 24th St in the Mission, around Florida St.
