Three Sisters Nixtamal
We source dried yellow and white corn
grown in Northern Mexico and occasionally
the panhandle of Texas. Our blue corn is
grown in New Mexico and in Chihuahua,
Mexico. Three Sisters Tortillas and Masa
are USDA Certified Organic by the Oregon
Department of Agriculture which by
definition means non-gmo. Our tortillas are
gluten-free because they are 100% corn
with three additional ingredients: water,
limestone and sea salt.
At Three Sisters Nixtamal we make our traditional organic corn tortillas and masa starting with our own fresh nixtamal. Cooking and soaking dried corn kernals in water and slaked lime or cal is a nutrient-enriching process...
If you would like to pick up fresh tortillas, hominy or masa for tortillas or tamales

Our Three Sisters Nixtamal story begins with the Enchiladas Potosinas that Adriana's mother, a native of San Luis Potosi, would bring frozen in her suitcase on her annual summer visits.
We teach a hands-on Tortilla, Sope & Gordita Making Workshop with our Fresh Masa. Everyone will make and enjoy their own masa creations with beans, fresh salsas and locally-made Don Froylan Mexican cheeses. All recipes included.
We are currently working on a new location to hold our classes. Nothing is currently scheduled. Please check back soon!
