Madrid Santa Fe Trading Company is owned and operated by the Madrid family and is located in South Sacramento near the metropolitan Airport. Following a successful restaurant career in New Mexico and Sacramento, Andy and Lola Madrid started a tortilla business in 1983, initially producing six tortillas per minute. They created a line of specialty tortillas in 1993 and saw production rise to 5,000 tortillas a day. Currently, the business is in the hands of their children and they are producing up to 35,000 flavored tortillas per day.
The Madrids emphasize the healthy aspects of their tortillas; low fat, no food coloring, cholesterol free, no trans fat. They use 100% soybean oil, whole wheat flour and literally bake fresh ingredients-garlic, onions, spinach, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro-into their flour tortillas.
The uses for tortillas are only limited to the creative imagination of the culinary artist. The unique colors and flavors provide the cook with a visibly appealing condiment or main entrée. Unlike other wraps that use dried, artificial flavorings and food coloring, these eye-catching tortillas are hand-pressed, all natural and 100% vegan.
