H-E-B
Multiple locations, heb.com
We know what you’re thinking. While H-E-B is 100 percent Texan AF, it’s not always the most puro. But, for a quick fix, you can definitely trust our favorite grocery store to have your tortilla needs covered – so long as they’re the ones from the bakery and not from the bread aisle. Convenience can’t be beat, and neither can their selection of corn tortillas (and the elusive nopal if you’re down!)
