You already know this, and that’s why you’re considering pressing your own, homemade toasted discs of goodness. But what if there was another option? One that could save time in the kitchen and still get the results you’re hoping for, i.e. flavorful, authentic tortillas that really taste like Mexico. Maybe you didn’t know it, but you can now order tortillas straight from the source and get them delivered to you quickly and hassle free. This can be a great option for people who just don’t have enough time to make their own. Still, while some prefer the convenience of ordering online, others enjoy the satisfaction of pressing their own. Both offer different benefits and it ultimately comes down to personal preference. In this blog, we'll explore the pros and cons of ordering handmade tortillas online vs making them at home so that you can decide which option is best for you.

Making your own tortillas can be a fun and rewarding experience. Not only will you get to enjoy the satisfaction of making something with your own hands, but you can also customize them to suit your own tastes. You can choose the type of flour, the thickness of the tortilla, and the spices you want to add to make them just the way you like. This can be especially great for those who are looking to get creative in the kitchen and experiment with different recipes. Making your own tortillas also has the added benefit of being healthier than most options for ordering them online. Store-bought tortillas are made with preservatives and other ingredients that may not be the healthiest for you and your familia. When you make your own tortillas, you can be sure that they are made with all-natural ingredients and no additives. Plus, you can control the amount of salt and other seasonings you add, so you can be sure that your finished product is as healthy as you want it to be.

However, making your own tortillas can have some drawbacks too. It can take up a lot of time and it’s hard to get it just right. Sometimes the tortillas are too thick and don’t puff up properly, or it can be hard to get the cooking temperature to the perfect level. Also, lacking professional equipment can get in your way. Though you can use a rolling pin, a tortilla press will get more consistently good results. Finally, if you’re throwing a big fiesta, that’s a whole lot of tortillas to make! And we bet that once your guests have tasted one of your delicious homemade tortillas they’re going to want some more. It can be frustrating to spend the whole party in the kitchen instead of mingling with friends and family.


Ordering handmade tortillas online is the easy and convenient option. Not only can you order them from the comfort of your own home, but you can also have them delivered right to your door. This means that you don’t have to worry about making a special trip to the store or spending time in the kitchen making them yourself. Another great benefit of ordering handmade tortillas online is that you can choose from a wide variety of flavors and sizes to suit your individual needs. You’ll be able to find the perfect tortilla for your favorite Mexican dish or for a delicious snack. Not to mention, you can also get them in bulk, which is great if you’re having a large gathering or if your Familia is grande sized.
