Heirloom White Chalqueño Corn — Chalqueño Blanco or Chalqueño Cremoso

 

Grown in the highlands of Tlaxcala, in the rich, volcanic soils moist with winter rain, the chalqueño landrace boasts the creamiest, softest and most buttery table tortilla. This is God-tier masa, people. (The pillowy texture results from the small amount of starch present in the kernel, so be sure to stay vigilant during the cooking phase so as not to overcook.)

And while it can be used for other applications, it works best as the corn to achieve that coveted, ethereal tortilla puff. In fact, there are few varietals that compare to its otherworldly softness and ivory hue — so much so, that it’s earned the ubiquitous nickname chalqueño cremoso.

 


 

MasiendaAll corn from Masienda is completely non-GMO grown on small farms using regenerative agricultural practices. It has never been treated with pesticides or fumigants.

Every heirloom corn varietal comes from hand-selected seeds preserved by farmers for hundreds (and sometimes) thousands of years, with the flavor and quality of the corn further perfected with each passing generation. Heirloom corn is nothing like the hybrid corn that makes up 99.9% of what we know in the US (even the organic stuff): it’s the OG superfood.
