Yellow Bolita yields a rich, beautiful yellow masa with sweeter vegetal notes that bring to mind carrots and butternut squash. Its denser starch content means it can support the structure of larger tortillas and always has a lovely toothsome finish. Also a delicious choice for pozole, polenta and grits.

Tlayuda Dreams

Sourced from Oaxaca’s central valleys, the Bolita landrace is the backbone of Oaxacan tlayudas, the large-format (13″-15”) tortillas and tostadas found throughout the region. With its dense, crystalline starch, it’s easy to see how this varietal could support the structure of such a large tortilla without falling apart. Our very favorite tlayudas are made by masa whisperer Doña Catalina, the wife of our farmer partner, Don Juan Velasco. Her comal easily reaches a temperature of 400 degrees, yet her hands move across its surface undaunted, pressing each one until it’s impossibly, perfectly thin.
