Corn Products

Mama Lola's corn tortillas, are made with natural cooked corn. We eliminate chemical preservatives by using a mixture of corn, water and lime. The lime preserves the quality and freshness of our corn products ensuring a rich authentic taste in every bite. On all of our corn tortillas we can pre-cut into 4 way, 6 way, and halves.

Pork Tamales

Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 lbs pork shoulder trimmed of fat and diced
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 medium onion quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup lard
  • 1/3 - ½ cup chili powder
  • ½ tablespoon for the dough, depending on your spice tolerance
  • 4 cups masa harina
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 30 corn husks dried, about 8 inches long
Directions

The filling:

  • Place the pork in a deep saucepan along with the cold water. Add onion, chili powder, garlic and salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 2 hours, until the pork is very tender.
  • Remove the meat from the broth. Strain the broth and reserve (allow the broth to cool if you want to remove the fat; if that's not important to you, keep it warm for tastier tamales). Allow the meat to cool and shred using two forks.

Mama Lola's Corn husks (Hojas)

  • Soak the corn husks in a bowl of hot water, using a plate to keep them submerged, until pliable, for approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Rinse to remove any corn silk and drain well. Reserve.

The Mama Lola's masa (dough)

  • Mix the lard (room temperature) with the baking powder, the ½ tablespoon chili powder and two teaspoons of salt. Slowly, alternate mixing in the masa harina, with 2 cups of the reserved broth. The result should be a thick, creamy paste.

Assemble

  • Starting 1/2 inch from the wide end, spread about 3 tablespoons of the dough down each husk. Leave a 1-inch border on the sides. If the husks are small, use two so the tamales do not fall apart.
  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pork filling down the center of the dough, then fold in the sides of the husk, wrapping the dough around the filling.
  • Fold up the narrow end of the husk. Repeat to create the rest of the tamales.
  • Set the steamer in a large pot filled with 2 inches of water. Arrange the tamales standing up in the steamer, folded-side down. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, cover, and steam until the dough is firm, 45 to 50 minutes. Add water when necessary.

  • freshly shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup pico de gallo
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • fresh cilantro
  • lime wedges

Directions
  • Heat oil in large pot over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add chicken thighs and cook until well browned, about 6 minutes. Flip thighs and continue to cook until other side is lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate, leaving fat in pan, and set aside.
  • Add onions and garlic to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions have browned around the edges, about 5 minutes. Add tomatillo and cook until browned around the edges, about 4 minutes. Add oregano and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, chipotle, and adobo sauce and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  • Transfer sauce to a blender and puree until smooth. Pour sauce back into pan, stir in chicken stock and bay leaf, and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Place chicken thighs in sauce, reduce to a simmer, and cook until chicken is fully cooked and easily shredded. Transfer chicken to a plate and let sit until cool enough to handle. Remove sauce from heat and discard bay leaf.
  • Pull chicken meat into strips. Stir chicken into sauce and cook over medium heat until warmed through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt to taste.
  • To assemble, place a fried tortilla on a plate and top it with a smear of warmed refried beans, about a 1/2 cup of Chicken tinga, some finely shredded cabbage, a few tablespoons of freshly shredded Monterey jack cheese, as many avocado slices as you want, a healthy spoonful of pico de gallo, some sliced scallions, fresh cilantro, thinly sliced jalapeños and serve it alongside some additional lime wedges

"Rito's uses these tortilla's and they have the best burritos in town!"

- Thomas H

"They have a great history in making our tortillas for our family restaurant. Tortas Chano team thanks Mama Lola's for their quality and service."

- Roger A.

"I discovered...all varieties of tortillas (corn and flour), freshly made of high quality ingredients. They have an impressive line of offerings, including tostada shells of various colors. I left with tasty blue corn tortillas, healthy but very tasty whole wheat tortillas, and a batch of awesome tasting red child whole wheat flour tortillas. Given that their products are affordable, made without preservatives, and high quality ingredients, I can't see buying my tortillas anywhere else."

- Tony H.

"Great staff, very nice and helpful. Gluten free and organic masa available."

- Lewis P.

"I've been searching since 2001 for a good tortilla in AZ. I'm born and raised in the SF Bay area with lots of tortilla factories around. Mama Lolas is the first yellow corn tortilla that is just tortilla no MSG or other things I can't pronounce. They are thick and wonderful. They do not fall apart great for making enchiladas and tacos. We also made corn chips. This is the only tortilla I will buy from now on and I have to drive almost 15 miles from my home in far east Gilbert to superstition market to buy them!"
