Our Story | Blanco Niño

IN PURSUIT OF THE PERFECT TORTILLA


Our founder Phil travelled to Mexico on an aspiring food adventure. His mission was to learn how to make the most authentic corn tortillas.

 Meeting local farmers along the way, he visited the milpas, molinos and tortillerias, and learned the secret to making truly authentic tortillas. Not only did he gain invaluable knowledge, he also acquired a new nickname…Blanco Niño.

With a desire to produce tortillas of equal standard to those found on every street corner in Mexico, Phil returned to Ireland and along with a great team, opened the doors to the Tortilleria in Tipperary in 2015.

 

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE


If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.

We set out on an epic endeavour to pay homage to the ancient Aztec way of cooking corn, known as nixtamalisation.

To create the best tortillas and tortilla chips possible, we use only non-GMO corn and source ingredients from heritage producers in Mexico.

You’ll have to taste them for yourself to truly understand the difference.

WHAT WE DO


Since launching in 2015, we’ve been making pretty epic corn tortillas for restaurants, and have had the pleasure of working with some of the leading Mexican restaurants and chefs across Europe.

All the while, we’ve been refining and perfecting our recipe, before finally launching our tortilla chips in shops in 2020.

We are delighted that our customers can now enjoy restaurant quality chips by simply picking up a pack of our tortilla chips in a store or through our shop.
