Santa Fe Tortilla Company

18 Bisbee Ct., Santa Fe, NM - (505) 473-7000
Posted By Michael Stern on 4/20/2014 5:38:00 AM
For several years now, the Santa Fe Tortilla Company has been an alluring roadside attraction on the highway north of Santa Fe. It is a big enterprise that produces some ten thousand packages of tortillas per day, distributed throughout the Southwest. They make flour and wheat tortillas in the normal eight-inch size and mini five-inch size as well as supersize tortillas that are a foot across.

The fun part about buying tortillas here is that if you look in back, you will see the wheaty circles coming out of the machine at lightning speed as a cluster of women at the end gather and stack them for packing. It’s a hypnotic sight. However, it will soon change. As of early 2003, plans are in the works to move the Santa Fe Tortilla Company to a new facility in South Santa Fe. We were told that visitors to the new place would be able to see the same tasks performed (and will soon be able to order tortillas via the company’s web site. The new factory will be state-of-the-art and capable of producing four times as many tortillas as now come off the line.

When you eat a freshly-made tortilla, you appreciate it's simple, earthy flavor. For wrapping a burrito or making chimichangas, this is what you need!

Tortillas virtually fly out of this machine to be stacked and packed while still warm.

This sign has been attracting travelers north of Santa Fe for many years. Recently the bakery moved into town.
