Where to buy *flour* based tortilla chips?

pappy97 | Dec 20, 2011 02:01 PM

I've noticed that there are a few restaurants where I love love love their tortilla chips, and they taste very different than most other tortilla chips. I have finally figured out that what I love about those chips is that they are made with flour. It is ironic, because we think of corn tortillas as being more authentic than flour tortillas, and for tacos I love corn tortillas, but for chips, I love these flour tortilla chips you get at some (but not many) Mexican joints.

Just wondering if people can recommend some stores, I'm guessing they might be Mexican stores like Fiesta or something, where you have seen first hand that you can buy these flour tortilla chips.

Not looking for people guesses, but actual first hand knowledge that certain stores carry such a product. I realize these chips are best fresh like at restaurants, but I am trying to have these at home with tacos made at home and don't want to make my own chips.

Also not looking for health food crap (I've heard of some stores selling flour based tortilla chips, but they aren't the ones I am thinking of, the ones I am thinking of are fried to a golden brown and some of the chips are puffy (have air bubbles), looking for authentic mexican/tex-mex flour tortilla chips.

Already looked in american grocery stores, including the likes of Whole Foods and Central Market. Before I venture into a Mexican grocery store (where I speak zero spanish), I'd love to hear if people have actual experience buying this product and where to get it.
