LYNDEN, Wash. — Tortillas Con Madre first began in Lupita Nava's family kitchen. Recipes passed down through generations have allowed time to perfect this high-quality and simplistic style flatbread, consumed alongside a variety of Mexican dishes.

“Con Madre means 'with mom,' and I am doing this because I want to honor my mom,” said Lupita.

The tortillas are made to please the most demanding palettes with unmatched flavors and textures, striving to use highly nutritional ingredients that will enhance everyone's meal experience.

"The care is there. We started small but with the highest standards,”  said Gerardo Quiroz.

You'll find a variety of tortillas on the shelves at your local grocery store. But Lupita wanted to create a healthier tortilla while maintaining a rich flavor and using local products.

There's no secret recipe, no complexity. Just 5 simple, organic ingredients: a mix of organic artisan wheat flour, water, organic pumpkin oil, sea salt, and non-aluminum baking powder.

“We make these tortillas with a lot of love, I want to share this with everybody,” said Lupita.
