I know Mission makes great corn tortillas, and I trust them too as I have never got sick and they supposidly have separate manufactoring and all..

But I can only find corn torillas here that are a max of 6 inches or so. Does anyone, Mission maybe, sell big tortilla shells made gluten free? I know there have to be some. Because when I used to live in San Francisco, one of my favorite burrito shops, the largest burrito was a corn tortilla, I think that was a 16 inch shell! hehe

I've found bigger ones in regular shopping stores. I think Mission sells larger ones. When you use them, heat them with a pat of butter on each side. THey soften up to a flour burrito consistency. Much better.

What? No yummy corn crunch?! I'd never do that to a tortilla. To each his/her own I guess.

grantschoep,

I live in Colorado as well and I have yet to find a large size corn tortilla. I would be interested to find one myself. I miss burritos.

When "burrito" was mentioned, I believed the original poster was talking about 'wraps'. My corn tortilla wraps don't crunch even when I don't heat them with a pat of butter on each side. Without the butter, the corn wraps are crumbly and tear easily when stuffed with ingredients. I find that the butter softens the burrito to a nice consistency. The wrap tears less easily, it is softer, less grainy and more like a flour wrap.

They're not corn tortillas and I haven't tried them yet, but I noticed today at my local health food store with the rest of the frozen breads, there were brown rice tortillas that were the larger size from Enjoy Life Foods.

I bought those for sandwiches until I discovered Breads From Anna. They're okay, but not great: the flavor is fine, but the texture is really chewy, and you can't roll them at all without breaking them. Slightly better if you heat them in the microwave for a few seconds, but still not great.

Ah, ok. I just like tortilla chips, and I get organic ones locally :) Nice and crunchy!

Anytime I've had taco shells, they did always crack apart on the first bite. A few seconds in the microwave before serving might do the trick - not sure.

I think wer'e talking soft corn tortillas here. There is the hard crunchy kind as well.

Most authentic Mexican food uses the soft corn variety.

I used to live in the Bay area also, and get these great tacos from a local Mexican mom & pop type place.

They were just 2 soft warm corn tortillas together with just meat and salsa. Unbelievably great!
