    Flour Tortillas Flavored and Wraps

    Handle with Care

    • Los Amigos stores and ships all of our flour tortillas at ambient/shelf stable temperature.
    • Ambient/shelf stable temperature tortillas are ready-to-use right out of the box.
    • Before opening bag, gently twist the stack of tortillas back and forth 3-4 times to loosen and separate the individual tortillas.
    • Once bag is opened, make sure to cover/seal the remaining tortillas to keep the tortillas from getting dry and cracking.
    • Do not remove and stack bags out of box more than 6 packages high. Stacking bags higher than 6 high may cause the product on the bottom of the stack to stick and crack.
    • Though not recommended, product can be refrigerated or frozen. If using tortillas that have been refrigerated or frozen, bring the tortillas to room temperature by removing from the case and letting them stand in the bag for 4-6 hours prior to using.
    • Tortillas give the best results when warmed prior to use.

    Storing Flour Tortillas

    Dry Storage

    • Store in a cool dry place. Avoid storing near any source of heat.
    • Keep the product in the original box.  If bags are removed from original box, do not stack higher than 6 bags high. Over stacking will cause the tortillas to stick together.

    Refrigerated or Frozen Storage

    • Los Amigos Flour Tortillas can be stored refrigerated or frozen, in their original sealed bags to extend shelf life.

    Corn Tortillas

    Handle with Care

    • Los Amigos Corn Tortillas* are stored and shipped at ambient/shelf stable temperature.
    • Though not recommended, product can be refrigerated or frozen. If using tortillas that have been refrigerated or frozen, bring the tortillas to room temperature by removing from the case and letting them stand in the bag for 4-6 hours prior to using.
    • While still in their bag, gently twist the stack of tortillas to loosen and separate the tortillas.
    • When frying corn tortillas, they perform best when fried with the oil temperature between 350°F -360°F. This will ensure that the tortillas are fried quickly and that the tortillas will absorb less oil.

    Storing Corn Tortillas

    Dry Storage

    • Keep product in original box. If bags are removed from the box, avoid stacking more than height of the original box.

    Pre-cut Unfried Chips & Strips

    Adhering to the following handling tips will result in the optimum finished product. Note that pre-cut unfried chips & strips will look and feel dry, which means lower oil absorption and greater savings.

    Handle with Care

    • Los Amigos  stores and ships all pre-cut unfried tortilla chips at ambient/shelf stable temperature.
    • If the chips are cold, please make sure that you bring the chips up to room temperature before frying.
    • Use hands to lightly separate any clumps of pre-cut unfried chips.
    • Maintain frying oil temperatures between 350°F -360°F.
    • Frying time ranges from 35 – 45 seconds, or until the oil is no longer bubbling; gently move chips or strips with tongs to ensure even frying.

    CAUTION: do not overfill the fryer with chips or strips; doing so will reduce the oil temperature which will cause more oil absorption and keep the chips or strips from fully cooking resulting in undercooked or raw product.
