Tina's Burritos is the leading CPG brand of frozen single-serve burritos in America and is owned by Camino Real Foods, Inc. We bake up a million budget-friendly burritos in our Los Angeles, CA factory daily and serve them to burrito lovers who appreciate great taste, convenience, and quick meals filled with important daily nutrients. Our products are slow-cooked in large kettles so the spices and flavors meld together for a flavor profile that is the industry leader, and then flash frozen for freshness. 

From Moms to Movie Stars, many customers write in and say they have been "addicted" to our burritos since 1984 when we first started making them. Others write in and say they started buying our products with food stamps because it was all they could afford, but now they buy Tina's Burritos with money in the bank. We are very proud to be able to produce a quality product that helps eliminate food insecurity in America and save our customers time and money that can be put towards advancing their own lives.
