Mexican Restaurant Supplies

Mexican cuisine is one of the most popular and far-reaching types of cuisine around the world. In fact, Mexican food can be found not only in North and South America, but in Europe and Asia as well. This is not surprising as properly prepared, cooked, and served Mexican food (the staples of which include corn or flour tortillas and various types of salsa) is delicious, tasty, and a feast for the eyes. Needless to say, the best Mexican food is that prepared using authentic Mexican restaurant equipment like a commercial tortilla warmer or a molcajete bowl.

Commercial Tortilla Warmers

A staple in Mexican cooking is the tortilla. A tortilla is a type of thin flat bread made from finely ground corn or wheat. Tortillas are commonly prepared with meat or other fillings such as vegetables or beans and made into dishes such as tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. However, cold tortilla tends to break easily and is not as soft and appetizing as warm or hot tortillas. This is why it is important to store and serve your tortillas in a commercial tortilla warmer, the official tortilla container used in Mexican restaurants.

A proper tortilla server is often a rounded container that helps keep tortillas warm during a meal in your restaurant or food-service establishment. Warm tortillas are placed in the tortilla server, which is often lined with cloth or paper napkins.

Tortilla servers are often constructed of different materials, which include terra cotta, plastic, and Styrofoam.

Here at Rapids Wholesale, you can choose from tortilla servers made of polypropylene that not only help keep tortillas warm but are also microwaveable, stackable, and dishwasher safe.

Molcajete Bowls

Another staple in Mexican cuisine is salsa or guacamole. Salsa is the Spanish term for sauce, and in English-speaking countries typically refers to tomato-based hot sauces (usually of Mexican origin), particularly those used as dips for nachos or tortillas. Guacamole, on the other hand, is an avocado-based sauce that can be used as a dip, condiment, or salad ingredient.

Both salsa and guacamole are preferably prepared and served in molcajete bowls by your food-service staff or crew alongside the customer or in the kitchen. Ingredients are traditionally mashed in a molcajete bowl to get the distinctive taste and texture.

Here at Rapids, you can choose from 4-ounce, 8-ounce, and 10-ounce molcajete bowls.
