Siete Foods Grain-Free Tortilla Chips 

As a teenager, Veronica Garza was diagnosed with a variety of autoimmune conditions that left her fatigued, overweight, and depressed. With her family’s love and support, she was able to get better. The family of seven (siete) started exercising and learning about the way food can heal or harm us. Veronica’s brother urged her to start a low-inflammation, grain-free diet, and the entire family joined Veronica on her journey towards wellness.  

Discovering that tacos and fajitas on a lettuce leaf just didn’t taste the same, Veronica began making grain-free tortillas for her family. When Veronica’s grandma, who had been making homemade flour tortillas for years, told her they were something special, she knew she was on to something and Siete Family Foods was born. Passionate about making and sharing real food and advocating for healthier lifestyles among Latino families, Siete Family Foods now makes grain-free tortillas, chips (available in Sea Salt & Lime), and a dairy-free queso dip.
