Corn Tortillas:

Corn tortillas, available in the bread section of Pete’s are made from dried, powdered corn (maize) and are most often found in their yellow form. More traditionally used in Mexican/Spanish cooking they lend themselves well to these style of flavours. They are a much more flavourful tortilla then the more commonly found wheat tortilla and stand up to sauce much better. Naturally gluten free they are a perfect and easy switch to keep everyone at your next dinner or taco party happy!
