EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) -- Tortillas are now outselling hamburger and hot dog buns at grocery stores across the country.

Americans pay roughly $2.9 billion a year for tortillas compared, to $2.1 billion for buns.

Tortilla factories like the one at Vista Market Place in El Paso, Texas can't say they're surprised that tortillas have become so popular.

"Customers come from all sides of town just looking for our tortillas," says Vista Market Place's Ruben Sandoval.
