Puebla is the home of some of Mexico’s richest culinary heritage and the most incredible Ancho chillies. Fresh, these chillies are called Poblanos but when sun dried they transform and intensify in flavour and take the name of Ancho. We source ours from a heritage farmer named Jorge.
A few years back, our founder Phil set out on what would become quite a serendipitous journey across Mexico.
Visiting the milpas, molinos and tortillerias of Mexico, Phil learnt how to make proper corn tortillas, like the ones found in the street markets of Oaxaca & Mexico City . Along the way, he picked up an affectionate nick-name – Blanco Niño.
Inspired by the tastes and traditions of Mexico, Phil returned to Ireland and in 2015, along with a great team, he opened the doors to the Tortilleria in Tipperary.
