“Raquelitas makes it the way it should be made, not the easy way, the right way” – that’s a quote from one of our competitors. We never take short cuts. For example, our masa making process has been featured on the Food Network because we hand craft our masa the same way it’s been done for thousands of years from cooked whole kernel corn and lime, ground between lava rock stones. Our entire creative process from recipe to baking is to achieve greatness, not low cost.
We work hard to be kind to our environment and be good stewards of the beautiful Colorado we inherited. How do we do it? 100% of power comes from wind generated electricity. We utilize LED bulbs and high efficiency motors to use less electricity. We recycle 98% of paper, require 78% recycled content in our outgoing boxes, 96% of food processing waste is recycled, and 4000+ lbs of frying oil is turned into bio-diesel fuel.We use gentler soaps and cleaners to clean up every night too!

We engineer tortillas and chips that are simply good for you. Nutritionally deliberate product targets include multi-grain, gluten free, low glycemic, caloric specific, vegan, high fiber, naturally flavored, and naturally sweetened. For example our Nacho Borrachos fried tortilla chips have the same calories as most baked tortilla chips. Our Sandwich Petals are lab verified gluten free, exactly 100 calories and low glycemic enough that Endocrinologists recommend them to diabetes patients.
Only premium brands make the cut here at Raquelitas. Every single ingredient is the highest grade available from around the globe, or from our own back yard. With each premium ingredient purchase we put our checkbook where our mouth is. Nothing in any of our tortillas or chips is bought based on low cost. To be in our box, you have to be the best!
