I am not sure you can call the folks at La Mesa Tortillas magicians, but they sure seem like it. They take simple, basic, ingredients and consistently churn out the best tortillas in a town that is not lacking in tortilla consumption. They offer all different sizes of flour tortillas, corn tortillas, whole wheat tortillas and, a must try, jalapeno flavor. Their taco and tostada shells are fried tortilla perfection as well. Even buying these tortillas is a treat, as you can see the condensation in the bag and feel the still-warm wraps as you rush them home to fill them with magic.
