Where to get good tortillas?

tortillas stacked on plateAaron (@WashUffize) asks via Twitter:

Recommendations on where near Albany to get good tortillas, preferably corn and/or "home made"?

The unfortunate fact is that most of us are accustomed to not-fresh -- or just plain bad -- tortillas. The good ones are worth seeking out.

So, got a suggestion for Aaron? Please share!

Update: Aaron says he had success at Mexican Market on Central Ave in Albany.

In Old Town, San Diego. The Old Town Mexican Cafe. Around here? Would LOVE to know.

they make them fresh every Saturday at the Price Chopper in Westgate Plaza, but they're flour ones.

We need to harness the power of the eTubes and gently push Stacy's Organic Tortillas (http://www.staceysorganic.com) to distribute their AMAZING flour tortillas here. I used to get them in Nebraska and there are none better. I heard an east coast distribution deal is in the works, but a few more requests won't hurt. Then we need to push the Co-op to stock them. Seriously. You will not be disappointed. When I can I get the big whole wheat ones. Even after being frozen, they are super yummy and pliable and I have never had a pack mold in my freezer. Never! Can you say that about any other tortilla you've brought home? Surely says alot about their ingredients and production facilities. Help! Let's do this!

Oops. I meant to say they don't mold in the fridge. What molds in the freezer? Duh! Later!

Get a tortilla press and do 'em yourself. They are surprisingly easy.

If you ask nicely, Bros Tacos will sell them to you (or at least they have to me in the past...)

Get a tortilla press and start making them. They're _really_ easy.

Have you tried grocery "la mexicana" in central ave? They have superb Mexican food

My kitchen. Remind me this weekend to send you recipes. (And you don't need a press. Just another useless kitchen gadget.)

La Mesa Tortillas of AZ are the BEST flour tortillas I have ever eaten. Homemade will surely be delicious, too, but sometimes that just isn't going to happen. They are currently offering to ship their white, wheat and jalapeno tortillas for a trial period. Order 7 dozen and have a make-your-own burrito party. It will be so awesome I promise.

Ole! :)

What Bill said. You could find pretty good tortillas in my kitchen too, and you DEF. don't need a press.

Price Chopper in Malta has fresh corn ones.

I want corn tortillas like the ones made by this place - www.tortillerianixtamal.com

Leaf Peeper Porter - a rich, malty dark beer nicely balanced by a touch of local apple cider (pre-fermentation for nice dry cider notes), ginger, cinnamon, and locally grown hops to brighten everything up. Basically, a rich dark beer finished with a nice apple-y fall crispness, perfect for fall in the Capital Region!
