ABOUT NIXTA

we live mas(A)

Heirloom corn tortillas have been our dream for many years. Not to be corny, but in a Proustian way (or like that scene in Ratatouille!) tasting a good tortilla has a tendency to transport us from Minnesota back to Mexico almost instantaneously.

Nixta is the realization of our shared dream, a family partnership and food friendships culminating in a humble tortilla sure to remind that ingredients and process matter. 

Finally, we love tacos. The surefire way to make them better is to give them a solid foundation. Also, we just want you to eat damn good tortillas. And tamales. And salsas. And other Mexican vittles.
