This is an unusual piece of memorabilia you can definitely enjoy, literally! Tortillas with the image of Selena imprinted on them sounds like a delicious way to enjoy those Taco Tuesdays. “Anything for Selenas,” the iconic phrase from the movie can not ring truer than this.

Joey Lopez a founder of the Convergent Media Collective shared his group came up with the idea from conversations about their… “abuelitas and tias seeing images on their tortillas.” He shared on an Instagram post that the idea to add images to the tortillas happened with the use of a laser cutter to add the singer’s image to their San Antonio based tortillas.

“It was a crazy ride for the next couple months after making a mobile tortilla laser rig for @luminariasa with the help of @johnfrazee Good times for sure,” shares Lopez on his Instagram. Other iconic faces that have been featured include Darth Vader and Congressman Joaquin Castro.
