They reached out and asked if I would be willing to check out some products from this new line. I’m constantly on the hunt for a good tortilla so I was more than happy to work with them.
Bueno Foods is based out of New Mexico and they focus on New Mexican style tortillas and chilies, using quality ingredients with a focus on traditional methods of preparation.
I was sent:
- Organic Whole Wheat Tortillas
- Organic Ancient Grain Tortillas
- Blue Corn Tortillas
- Container of Hot Flashed Roasted Hatch Green Chilies
The ancient grains tortilla piqued my interest right away because sometimes those style of tortillas can be really dry and a little rough.
I made breakfast tacos using these tortillas. The ingredients for these tortillas include whole wheat, amaranth, millet, quinoa, buckwheat and flaxseed.
These were delicious! Totally soft and flexible with an amazing texture. I was completely impressed and pleasantly surprised by these guys.
The blue corn tortillas also get a two thumbs up! I made pulled pork tacos with these and they are the first corn tortillas I’ve used where you didn’t have to use two tortillas per taco. They are thick enough that they don’t break up (once you warm them slightly) and split while you’re eating but they aren’t so thick that it throws off the texture causing it to be too much.
The wheat tortillas were used to make various wrap sandwiches. While it is a basic whole wheat tortilla they are soft and have a pleasing texture.
Both the wheat and ancient grain tortillas are big enough that you can make a small wrap but they are not burrito sized. They are in the middle between taco and burrito sized tortillas.
The green chilies were HOT. Oh man, way too much for my heat tolerance, however, they were perfect for Scott. I made a chile sauce out of them that he used to top tacos. I cooked up the green chilies with onion, and garlic, and a little splash of chicken stock. I blended all that up until smooth. It was perfect as a topper or as a dip for tortilla chips.
Overall I was really impressed with BUENATURAL line from Bueno Foods and would gladly seek out their tortillas. Everything can be ordered online through their shop if you are interested in trying out their products as well.
Thanks to Bueno Foods for sending me some products to try and allowing me to share that with you!
