fat tortillas

  • d

does anyone know anything about really thick tortillas and where i might be able to get some(preferably in austin or dallas)? a friend swears he got some in texas, maybe a pack of six, that were maybe 3"-4" in total thickness.

    1. re: Greg Spence

      not sure -- flour, i think. and he said they were hand-tossed.

    2. For fat (thick) corn tortillas goto Angie's in Austin. Thick flour tortillas sound kind of bad in principle...but for good flour tortillas--goto Joe's Bakery in Austin.

      1. Gonzalez in Dallas on Jefferson Ave. has really thick flour tortillas that are like savory pancakes. El Ranchito, also on Jefferson, has amazing corn tortillas. Both are in the Oak Cliff neighborhood.

        1. There is also a Gonzalez on Bruton Rd (in SE Dallas). They have the same thick tortillas that are nearly a meal in themselves.

          1. Yep you are thinking of the fat Corn Tortilla, I have never heard of flour. There are many places that make these. Most of the taco places that make their own can and do make these.
