What Are They?
La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb High Fiber Large Tortillas
PER SERVING (one tortilla): 80 calories, 3g fat, 300mg sodium, 18g carbs, 12g fiber, 1g sugars, 8g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
"Healthy, hearty and TASTE GREAT! Each tortilla only contains [6 effective] carbs, making them ideal for any low carb diet, or perfect as a healthy bread substitute." That is music to our fiber-craving ears. (Why do our ears crave fiber? Don't ask.) These tortillas are beyond perfect for whipping up all our Mexican-inspired treats -- quesadillas, wraps, burritos, etc. -- and so much more! We keep a pack or two in our fridge at all times. (They stay nice and fresh there.)
Why We Love Them
* Each tortilla has -- are you ready for this? -- almost half the fiber you need in a day.
We flipped the first time we saw this, and we're still in awe today. Way to pack it in, tortilla-people!
* It's no secret that we're protein fans, and these have a lot. Eight grams in a bread swap? And that's before you even add anything to this flat piece of goodness! You're well on your way to a VERY nutritious meal.
* The packaging says it all: LARGE. We like our tortillas big so that we can load 'em up with veggies, light cheeses, and lean meats. These bad boys don't let us
down. And they still manage to fit perfectly in a standard skillet for making toasty quesadillas!
* They're pretty easy to find! They are stocked at many, many markets, so click here to find a location near you. Or you can get 'em sent straight to your doorstep by ordering your tortillas online. It's what all the cool kids are doing these days (or so we hear).
Slightly warm your tortilla by microwaving it for about 10 seconds before stuffing it with your favorite fillings. Doing so will make it easier to work with, and it'll also taste better!
Lifestyles of the Round and Guiltless
They can often be found hanging out in local hot spots: OVENS. One of our favorite tricks is turning these tortillas into instant thin-crust pizza bottoms! Just pop one on a baking sheet and into the oven at 375 degrees -- bake until crispy, about 5 minutes per side. Try it out with our Crispy White Pizza, a 200 Under 200 exclusive!
CHEW ON THIS: It's World Vegetarian Day! Yes, October 1st is one big day for veggie-eaters everywhere, so give one a pat on the back and make lunch for that lucky vegetarian. How about a Girl on Grill Veggie Wrap?
