Cornudas is an unincorporated community in Hudspeth County, Texas, United States. Cornudas is located near the intersection of Ranch to Market Road 2317 and the concurrent U.S. Highways 62 and 180, 42 miles (68 km) northwest of the county seat, Sierra Blanca. Cornudas was located in 1929 strategically on the most direct route between El Paso, Texas (64 miles (103 km) west) and Carlsbad, New Mexico (104 miles (167 km) northeast) as a natural rest and resupply station. It was directly or indirectly named for the Cornudas Mountains that can be seen behind the Cornudas Cafe.


A post office opened in Cornudas in 1938, though it closed within a year; Willie Tinnin was the only postmistress. At the time, Cornudas primarily served nearby cattle ranches and a Standard Oil pumping station. As of the mid-1980s, the community still contained several businesses and homes. Its population was nineteen in 2000.
