I found Low Carb Tortillas at the grocery store last week, and I’ve really been enjoying them!
I thought I was going to have to order them online, but I got lucky finding them local.
I’ve had them three times in the last 24 hours, so I thought I’d share some of the fun ways we’re eating them.
And even my teen daughter likes the Low Carb Tortillas – and she’s used to eating regular tortillas!
Me, not so much, so I wouldn’t have noticed if there was a big difference. But they’re definitely good!
The first thing I tried was a basic fajita-style wrap. I used the steak & chicken fajita meat that I always buy. I put it in a skillet on high with a few dashes of soy sauce. I warmed the Low Carb Tortillas slightly, then added shredded cheese & sour cream:
This morning I decided to try something a little different. I was in a hurry to get out the door to my Reflexology appointment (which I love!!) and decided to make some PB&J roll-ups real quick.
I warmed the Low Carb Tortilla just a bit, spread the peanut butter & jelly on – one on each side – then rolled it up and cut it in half.
It was a quick snack, but perfect for something to grab on the go.
Looks messy, tasted great! 🙂
The Polaner Sugar Free jellies/preserves are only 2 net carbs per tablespoon, by the way.
It’s hard to find low carb sugar free jelly but Polaner is a great pick if you can find it in your local grocery store. It’ll be with the rest of the peanut butter & jelly.
Then for lunch today I got the bright idea to make a grilled cheese using the Low Carb Tortillas. Actually, it would be considered a quesadilla – lol. I made it just like a grilled cheese though: I put some butter in a hot skillet, put the first tortilla in, topped it with shredded cheese, added another tortilla on top, then flipped it and browned both sides:
Obviously you could add peppers & onions, meat, and all sorts of things. I was going for a simple crispy cheesy snack today, so it was perfect!
These low carb tortillas are only 1 carb each, by the way. Sweet! I bet they will make it much easier to hold a hamburger (complete with lettuce, mayo & pickles) than the way I’ve been trying to eat them (haha). If you use the lettuce to pick it up, it can get slick and end making a real mess. 😛
Update: I’ve had a hard time finding these same tortillas at my local stores again. The ones they are stocking now are a higher carb count.
I am now ordering these Low Carb Tortillas from Netrition. Great low flat-rate shipping no matter how many products you order!
