What Does Home-Style Mean?

What Does Home-Style Mean?

Since 2002, Tortilleria Cuauhtémoc has been providing fresh home-style tortillas. But what does it mean? And why do we do it?

What Does It Mean to be Home-Style?

Merriam-Webster defines homestyle as “having qualities (such as simplicity, familiarity, and unpretentiousness) associated with or evocative of home.” But to us, home-style means providing the comforts of home with our products. All of our products will evoke the feeling of home:

  • Corn Tortillas
  • Corn Tortillas for Tacos
  • Flour Tortillas
  • Wheat Tortillas
  • Tostadas
  • Big Bag of Tostadas
  • Masa, prepared and non-prepared 

But our most popular home-style products are our tostadas and flour tortillas. We pride ourselves on providing shoppers with quality corn, wheat, and flour tortillas and chips. Our products have the authentic Mexican flavor our shoppers love to bring home. 


For Tortilleria Cuauhtémoc, this means we combine our best ingredients with our secret formula is what makes our products home-style and authentic. Our products are hand-crafted with Mexican flavors and techniques to make the best on the market. We work in small batches so we offer only the freshest tortillas, salsas, and more. From our family to yours, we give you the fresh home-style tortillas you need to make your meals delicious and homemade. 

Home-Style Is Better Than Restaurant Style

Plus, home-style is better than restaurant style. But don’t believe us! The Atlantic published an article proving it true. That’s because fresh, whole, and simple ingredients will always top fat and salt. We know how addicting the restaurant-style chips can be, but are they satisfying and filling? The answer is usually no. Instead, the added fat and salt are addicting to the tastebuds. 

Most people assume you want restaurant-style food at home, but that’s wrong. It’s usually over-sauced, over-salted, and over-rich. Chef restaurants don’t care how much salt, fat, or vegetables you consume. It’s why home-style food at home is the more flavorful and healthy option. With home-style food, you know what goes into the food you cook at home. 

Restaurant-style food is not what you want to mimic in your home. Instead, you need staple items, ingredients, and recipes. That’s where our tostada chips can come into play. You’ll find it’s the missing ingredient, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack time! Our tostada chips are made with our very own corn tortillas and they’re crispy and tasty with every bite.
