YELLOWDAHLIA was correct, the tortillas at Trader Joe's are great. They taste very similar to white flour tortillas that I love, less than half the calories, fat, etc and are decent priced. Great find!

LOVEXAVIE---thank you!! I will look into that!

YELLOWDAHLIA--thank you! We don't have a Trader Joe's close (closest is maybe two to three hours away) but I have a group at work and whenever one of us is in the area we do runs for each other so I will have to add a pack onto the next trip there and see how I like them. I love that store!

Sorry to be more specific I haven't found any 100% whole wheat tortilla I like, I only like the white flour tortilla. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on more flavor freindly 100% whole wheat tortillas. I will get ont he SparkTeam for the cookbook as I do own it! Thanks!

Honestly? I just eat the white flour ones, but only have one....maybe 2 if we're talking enchiladas, and I also plan ahead in my tracker so they don't throw me over my range for the day. I found some at the supermarket that were only 110 calories each, and they were not weird low carb ones either. They tasted awesome. They were "La Favorita Flour Tortilla Caseras" When I bought them, I looked through all the different brands and picked those because of the calories.

ETA: I just realized the La Favorita tortillas are made about a mile from where I live, in Henderson, CO. So they may not be available in your area :(

I find that the whole wheat,high fiber tortila's are to high in fiber. With all of the fruit and veggies I eat now it almost always throws me way over. So I usually eat just the wheat ones/

I found some awesome tortillas a Trader Joe's last week! They were only 60 calories each! They looked like regular white tortillas, but when I read the ingredients it said whole wheat. Anyway, they tasted like the regular white ones.

I'm with you on the whole wheat tortillas (blahck) pasta too for that matter, for me it's a texture thing. I look at it like this; I eat pasta maybe 2X a month and tortillas less, the vast majority of my carbs are whole grain so have what you will enjoy in moderation.
I have found if I substitute something I don't really like for something I am craving I just end up eating both because it doesn't satisfy the craving.

When I wake up in the morning till I lay my head to rest, everyday of my life I am blessed!

Boy are you going to like me!
I did find a low carb flour soft tortilla at Walmart in So CA from a company called Romero's.
However, the last few x's I tried finding them, that particular variety was awol. Don't know if they were just out that day or if they stopped carrying them or what.
They taste like a normal flour tortilla! I think they have about 100 / 110 calories and they are very low carb (can't recall exact #), They are smallish (soft taco size) but yum, yum, yummy!

Yes, I know whole grain is more healthy for us & I don't mind them most of the time, but sometimes a girl's gotta have a flour tortilla, you know?

Here's their website. They also have a toll-free # listed on that site. Maybe you can see if they are sold near you.
Good luck!

I'm not sure if I understand the problem. What kind of tortillas do you eat if they're not made from wheat or corn? Those are the only kinds I've ever seen.

Regardless, if you're looking for the flavors (spices, etc.) but don't want the tortillas, you could just put whatever would have filled the tortilla on a plate and eat it. If whatever taco/burrito/etc filling you have is mostly meat and veggies and you need something starchy to fill out the meal, you could add some corn, rice or beans.

What you might do is join the Spark People Cookbook Official Team.

You can post this question there and ask any of the members or even Chef Meg if she has any possible options for your cooking dilemma.

I've had a craving for Mexican lately but I can't stand wheat tortillas. This may seem like an idiotic thing to panic about but I'm trying to find a good tasting option for torillas that doesn't taste horrible. I don't like corn tortillas either unless they are cooked and turned into chips..
