A Better Kind of Tortilla

tortillaI’ve been on the lookout for a better option to a flour tortilla.  Most often I try and stay gluten free but once in a while it’s nice to have a yummy quesadilla or breakfast burrito.  I’ve also had clients looking for a better option as well.  I’ve tried homemade options and corn shell options. Whether it’s due to time constraints or flavor, nothing seemed to be a good option.

My husband came back from the store the other day with a grin on his face and a great find. http://www.tortillaland.com/tortillas

Of course the first thing I did was turn it over to look at the ingredients list.   I was pleasantly surprised.  Because they aren’t fully cooked, they don’t have preservatives!

INGREDIENTS: Wheat Flour, Water, Canola Oil, Salt, Sugar.

They have a corn option as well as one with flax seed in them.

This option may take an extra three minutes to finish them off on a skillet but I’ll take that over eating an ingredients list that looks like this any day (which is a typical tortilla):

Ingredients:

Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Modified Wheat Starch, contains 2% or less of: Brown Sugar, Flaxseed, Salt, Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Aluminum Sulfate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate and/or Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Calcium Sulfate), Vegetable Shortening (Interesterified Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Partially Hydrogenated Soy and/or Cottonseed Oil, Palm Oil), Wheat Starch, Soy Lecithin, Wheat Fiber, Guar Gum, Preservatives (Calcium Propionate, Sorbic Acid and/or Citric Acid), Dough Conditioners (Fumaric Acid, Sodium Metabisulfite, Distilled Monoglycerides), DATEM, Enzymes, Canola Oil, Triglycerides.

See what I mean?!  Give them a shot and see what you think.
