Last year, I approached KCRW with the best antic idea, in a career absolutely congenital on them: What if we did a sports-like tournament, but centered on tortillas?
To be added specific: What if we best 64 tortillas (32 corn, 32 flour) from beyond Southern California, disconnected them amid four brackets, seeded them so underdogs were akin up adjoin heavyweights, and captivated an elimination-style challenge until alone two blah and two abrade finalists remained? Afresh had those actual four go toe-to-toe in advanced of a alive admirers to achieve the abiding question: blah or flour?
And what if the affairs were absolutely a anniversary of tortillas, including tortilla samples, tortilla art, and (non-tortilla-themed) music?
To be honest, I didn’t anticipate KCRW would be bottomward with the idea. But to my delight, not alone did they accept it, the administration alleged it afterwards me: KCRW & Gustavo’s Great Tortilla Tournament. And the masses who angry out for masa had so abundant fun that we’re accomplishing it again!
So behold: the added copy of KCRW’s #TortillaTournament!
Over the abutting month, myself and adolescent KCRWers Evan Kleiman, Connie Alvarez, and Nick Liao will eat our way from Santa Barbara to Indio to San Juan Capistrano and all credibility in amid as we try to acquisition the best blah and abrade tortillas in Southern California.
Every week, you can analysis online and by alert to “Good Food” for the latest updates and stories. As the 64 contestants are whittled bottomward to 32, afresh 16 and so forth, Evan, Connie, Nick and myself will action our tasting notes.
To see this year’s bracket, bang here. And analysis out the articulation that aired this anniversary bottomward below!
Once we get to our four finalists, we’ll accept a big ol’ pachanga on September 8 from 3 to 7pm at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes (near Olvera Street and Union Station), complete with tortilla-making demonstrations, music, micheladas, food, and alike tortilla art address of Joe Bravo, the world’s greatest tortilla artist. There, we’ll actuate the best blah and abrade tortillas, afresh accept the finalists face off! The accident is FREE, but you accept to RSVP—do so here.
The top four finishers from anniversary bracket aftermost year return, abundant like Serena Williams consistently makes it into the Grand Slam tennis finals. But anybody abroad is new, apery the aforementioned tortilla assortment we accent aftermost year: Handmade and machine-produced. Old and new. Restaurant and market. Powdery, buttery. Chicano, Sonoran, Tex-Mex. Some good, some not.
But the purpose charcoal the same: to bless tortilla ability in Southern California. To appearance association that there is added to the tortilla activity than the sad, tasteless backpack of Mission or Guerrero tortillas in your fridge.
And to beforehand restaurants, taco trucks and home cooks to akin up their game, so we eaters can adore the best tortillas possible.
The #TortillaTournament has already accomplished results. Tortilla advantage civic is wising up to the actuality that abrade tortillas are as accepted as corn, and that bodies should affliction about the aureate and blah acclimated in their tortillas. Contestants who went abysmal in aftermost year’s tournament, like Kernel of Truth (a Fuerte Four finalist that uses non-GMO blah from Mexico) and HomeState (one of the few restaurants in Southern California that makes Tex-Mex-style abrade tortillas) saw an uptick in appeal and a new area in Playa Vista afterwards we accepted their goods.
Meanwhile, aftermost year’s winner, Sonoratown in burghal Los Angeles, has becoming civic and all-embracing advantage for its Sonora-style abrade tortillas, airy, buttery beauties accepted by anybody from Rene Redzepi of Noma to Netflix’s “The Taco Chronicles.” Because of their success, they were able to aggrandize aftermost year and currently accept hour-long lines.
All because they offered adorable tortillas.
The clash architecture will be accustomed to any of you who chase the NCAA’s March Madness or the FIFA Apple Cup: 32 corn, 32 flour, breach into four brackets of 16. Within those brackets, every tortilla is assigned a seed, so that the highest-ranked tortillas are up adjoin the lowest-ranked ones in the aboriginal rounds. That makes it easier for the best of the best to beforehand against the finals—but additionally allows for upsets.
For the aboriginal two rounds, we bought the tortillas fresh, afresh froze them to see how they would authority up afterwards dethawing (pro tip: dust off all the ice back you booty them out of the freezer, bung out the top and basal tortillas already they’re accessible to eat, and get a anhydrate to sop up any added moisture. For the Suave 16 on, we bought new packs of the advancing tortillas and ate them beginning through the Eso Eight.
The top four seeds in anniversary bracket represent the eight blah and abrade finalists from aftermost year. Evan and Nick got the blah category; Gustavo and Connie ashore with flour. Anniversary accumulation addled their corresponding bracket winners from aftermost year to ensure no discrimination — for instance, Gustavo gets Burritos La Palma as his #1 berry this year, because they won Connie’s bracket aftermost year; meanwhile, Connie has Sonoratown (the all-embracing champ aftermost year), which Gustavo had in his bracket in 2018.
All added newcomers were assigned rankings for their brackets based on taste, historicity, and potential.
One accumulation that ISN’T allotment of the antagonism afresh this year: home cooks. We appetite bodies to be able to calmly buy the tortillas in the tournament, and I don’t anticipate your mom, abuelita, tio, or accessory wants hundreds of strangers to aloof beat by their abode abutting Sunday and ask for a dozen, you know?
Your admired tortilla didn’t accomplish it this year? There’s consistently abutting year. And if you accept a botheration with the agriculture or the entries? Hit me up and alone me—my name is in the tourno, afterwards all.
Anyways, adore and alpha eating! And don’t balloon to use #TortillaTournament in your photos and posts.
First, some accepted terms:
Tortillas from HomeState in Hollywood, August 2019. Photo by Amy Ta.
Diminutive of torta, which signifies “flour, with added ingredients, in a annular anatomy adapted over low heat,” according to the Real Academia Española. In added words, a cake. Wait, what? Yep, kids: “tortilla” the chat is originally Spanish and is absolutely added of a frittata, as any abashed Chicano who ordered one in Madrid will acquaint you.
What we now apperceive as a “tortilla”—that is, a Mexican flatbread fabricated of blah or aureate flour—was alleged “tlaxcalli” by the Aztecs. The Spaniards, because they didn’t apperceive any better, accounted them “tortillas”—and now you apperceive the REST of the story.
The basal aliment of Mexico. From this blah chef emerges blah tortillas, sopes, panuchos, chalupas, tamales, blimp gorditas, huaraches (the meal, not the sandal) and so abundant more. Masa can alone appear after…
The action by which blah is angry into masa. Blah charge be nixtamalized because bistro too abundant raw maize gives eaters pellagra, a crumbling disease. Nixtamalización happens by assimilation broiled blah kernels in a admixture of baptize and cal, which creates an alkalized solution. That, a wash, and affable softens the kernels and removes the toxins, but additionally adds calcium and potassium, niacin, amid added minerals: one of the world’s greatest baby miracles.
You can nixtamalize at home, but it’s an backbreaking task. The best tortillerias in Southern California nixtamalize circadian in behemothic vats. But abounding tortillerias abominably accept added relied on…
Dehydrated masa, and what too abounding Mexican cookbooks alarm for if you appetite to accomplish bootleg tortillas. It has no flavor, period, and a agglomeration of preservatives. Abounding tortillerias secretly fasten their own masa with Maseca so their tortillas accept a best shelf activity (masa and blah tortillas with no preservatives go bad awfully fast). Alike aloof a baptize of Maseca sours any blah tortilla it touches, and furthers the Galactus that is…
The bigger tortilla maker in the world, they accomplish Maseca and accomplish the top-selling blah and abrade tortillas in the United States: Guerrero and Mission, respectively. Abutting time you go to a Latino bazaar (or really, any non-Trader Joe’s/Whole Foods), apprehension how Gruma’s articles boss the tortilla section—and never buy them again. A Aftertaste commodity this year cogent alleged Gruma the “tortilla cartel,” and we’ll leave it at that.
Giant accessories that acquiesce tortillas to accomplish but generally advance to a bead in quality. The epicenter for tortilla machines in the United States, interestingly enough, is San Antonio, hinting at its above appellation as the burghal with the bigger citizenry of Mexicans in the United States alfresco Mexico.

“Hand-made tortillas.” Almost consistently tastes bigger than tortillas from machines—but what acceptable are they if the restaurant uses Maseca for their masa?
Now, for styles:
This decade, restaurants like Guerilla Tacos, Broken Spanish and Taco Maria accept sourced the blah for their masa from brokers like Masienda, which assignment with farmers in Mexico to abound non-GMO blah from antique strains kept amid families for generations. The bawdy aftertaste obliterates any competition—two of our four blah finalists, Kernel of Truth and Taco Maria, assignment alone with antique corn. And Masienda is boring entering the retail market.
“Fatties,” to be blunt. Not to be abashed with the blimp dish, these are blah tortillas that are thicker than accepted and accept a added able-bodied acidity as a result. Added tortilla makers are starting to action gorditas as the appearance spreads—my admired charcoal Miramar Tortilleria from Eastlos.
In Texas, abrade tortillas are a altered breed from what we’re acclimated to in Southern California. Abounding recipes alarm for baking powder, for starters, and accept as abundant drip as chicharrón. The aftereffect is thick, cool things that generally aftertaste like biscuits (the best boundless cast is La Paloma White Wings, which ships their mix beyond the United States).
Californians accept continued ridiculed the Tex-Mex tortilla, but it’s an arbitrary comparison. The alone adversary in our #TortillaTournament that makes Tex-Mex-style abrade is HomeState, and I’m not afraid that they’re one of our eight finalists, so adorable they are. Don’t abhorrence until you’ve tried!
I’ll accept it: I’m inventing this class appropriate now. But if you eat abundant Mexican aliment in East Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley, and added areas with longstanding Chicano communities, and eat added styles the way I have, you’ll apprehend that Cal-Mex restaurants adopt their abrade tortillas attenuate and dusty, the bigger to blanket about burritos. I’m cerebration the beauties of Carrillo’s in the San Fernando Valley, or the tortillas Al & Bea’s in Boyle Heights uses to ability their allegorical bean-and-cheese burritos. Added analysis needs to be done on this style, and how it’s evolved—or, conversely, remained in aperitive amber.

If antique blah tortillas are all the acerbity amid the tortilla aristocracy in Southern California, afresh Sonoran tortillas are the flip-side. It refers to the arctic Mexican state, the declared birthplace of abrade tortillas. They’re admired as the best abrade tortillas of them all: attenuate as a napkin yet sturdy, and ambrosial of wheat.
Historically, the best acclaimed tortillas from actuality are the sobaqueras, tortillas bigger than a basketball bandage and commonly bankrupt up for your meal. You can’t acquisition them yet in Southern California, but restaurateurs accept brought the appearance to Los Angeles over the accomplished brace of years and anon sparked a trend (the avant-garde was Esdras Ochoa, of Mexicali Taco Co. and Salazar) that has now alike advance to New York. Tellingly, two of the four abrade tortilla finalists accomplish Sonoran tortillas, La Monarca Bakery and the appropriately alleged Sonoratown, both whom additionally assignment with antique aureate producers in Sonora to get the harina (flour) for their tortillas. And a third, Burritos La Palma, is somewhat in that appearance and aloof as delicious?
