Handmade Corn tortillas not from Los Cincos Puntos

Looking for handmade corn tortillas to purchase 4 or 5 dozen at a time. La Azteca was my favorite but they no longer make, Los Cinco Puntos makes theirs to thick for my taste. Help! Want them for this weekends taco tri tip extravaganza!

  1. Seriously, La Azteca doesn't make them any more?

      Not the corn, bug them, maybe they will bring the corn back! Flour is still as good as ever!

        And the flour not in big burrito size either.

    2. Tacos Puntas Cabras used to sell theirs by the 6 - pack. Assume they still do, but not sure.

        I think they still do. I think I saw packages behind the counter when I went recently. They recently posted a pic of little masa dough balls getting ready to be made into tortilla: http://instagram.com/p/pxPvA4gwEL/

        However, it looks like the OP is looking in the East LA area, or perhaps that just where tortillerias are generally found?

        And their Carnitas is phenomenal too.

        1. La Parilla in ELA makes them at the restaurant for the dine ins but you might try calling to see if you can order to go.
          They're really good!

          1. I love the blue corn tortillas from the Tortilla place in El Mercadito.
