I ordered tortilla warmers, ...
with the chili pepper design,
to hand out at our family
reunion and was so pleased
at the work that La Tortilla
Loca did. Not only do I use
it often, but all the other family members rave at how great
the tortilla warmer is--pop the
tortillas in the warmer,
microwave, then enjoy.
