Masienda Tetelas (Dozen) – Local LA Pickup or Overnight Delivery
Tetelas are available for local Los Angeles pick up or nationwide overnight shipping!
Tetela (n) [teh-teh-lah]: Tetelas are stuffed masa triangles that are commonly filled with pureed beans and/or cheese. In Mexico, particularly Oaxaca and Puebla, they’re classified within the antojitos (literally, “little whims”, i.e., snacking) canon, but our tetela whims at Masienda will regularly extend well into breakfast, lunch and dinner territories.
While tetelas are easy to make at home, sometimes you just want to tetela and chill, you know? We’ve got us all covered.
We partnered up with our local partner and longtime friend, Chef Ray Garcia of LA’s Broken Spanish restaurant, to produce a custom tetela exclusively for Masienda. The collaboration marks the first batch of our Masa en Casa program, which brings elevated, prepared masa experiences straight to your door.
Each hand-made tetela begins with freshly-nixtamalized, ground masa that’s made with Masienda partner grower Don Armando’s blue cónico corn. The Broken Spanish team then presses the masa into tortillas, one at a time, spreads a house-made black bean puree across each tortilla, folds the tortilla edges into a triangle and gently sears each side on a comal before it’s finally packaged and vacuum sealed. Each order comes with two packs of six tetelas each.
Suffice it to say, these tetelas are prepared with a whole lot of love.
Ingredients: Heirloom corn, black beans, yellow onion, serrano pepper, avocado leaf, oil blend (olive and canola), salt, lime (cal).
PLEASE NOTE: We ship overnight orders Monday-Wednesday for a flat $50 fee (can not be combined with other orders), and recommend immediate use or freezing to ensure product quality. Tetelas should be reheated before serving and every order comes with reheating instructions and serving recommendations. If you’d like to order more than one dozen, please send us a note to email@example.com for customized shipping rates.
For larger orders and wholesale/foodservice, please take 90 seconds to share your production needs with our wholesale hospitality team. Thank you!
