   La Princesita Tortilleria was founded by the late Francisco “Pancho” Ramirez in 1972. Pancho was committed to producing a high-quality corn tortilla made with real corn through a process known as nixtamlization – the same process used to make tortillas by our Aztec and Mayan ancestors.  Today, 50 years later, Pancho’s family carries on his legacy and continues to make La Princesita corn tortillas with nixtamal.

In the early 1970s, a young street vendor from Cuernavaca, Mexico, Francisco “Pancho” Ramirez (1954-2019), arrived in East Los Angeles. He founded La Princesita Tortilleria in 1972 and became a pioneer in East LA tortilla making by making fresh corn tortillas using all natural ingredients. In the mid-1980s, Pancho started making flour tortillas with the same commitment to freshness and quality.  Today, La Princesita is one of the few remaining Tortillerias that continues to make the traditional “Hand Stretched” flour tortilla.
