I usually find them at my normal grocery. However, usually the corn tortillas are usually in a refridgerated case unlike the flour ones which are frequently found on shelf in the bread or mexican sections.

I don't know where you are, but here in Southern California they're kind hard to miss! :lol:

I get mine at Ralphs, which is owned by Kroger, and they are located prominently on an endcap.

I have heard, however, that in some parts of the country, decent Mexican food is basically not available :( so you might have to keep searching.

Try asking the manager at your local market.

Also, if there is a Hispanic neighborhood in your area, check there.

If you're feeling adventurous, buy a tortilla press and a bag of masa and make your own!

Caution: it's a lot of work! :rolleyes:

I Southern California every regular grocery store carries corn tortillas. I buy Mission Tortillas. I find them in any regular grocery store. I have also seen them in Walmart. Below is the website for Mission Foods. You may want to contact them to see if any of your local store carry them.

I get mine at either walmart or our local store.

Sometimes they are by the mexican foods and sometimes they are buy the bread. Depends on the store.

You might try asking next time you're at the store - they're often on an aisle end in the stores I've been at in a number of states.

I tried a few brands of corn tortiallas and i found that the brand Azteca tastes the most like flour tortillas, they are in the refrigerated section of the grocery store, I buy mine at Meijers.

I just wish they made a bigger corn tortilla like the flour ones, the corn ones are small.

Thanks everyone! I checked my local Shaws and found the Mission brand hiding behind their flour tortillas. You've never seen anyone so excited to find tortillas!

Yes, I had to stop eating Schar bread because I was getting sick on it all the time. I believe if I am not mistaken (it has been a long time) the Artisan line does not. I received this tip from someone else, and I don’t know if it is accurate but it seemed to help me, at least.
