My friend told me, after I'd ordered some online, that Wal-Mart carries them and sometimes they are in with the reg tortillas and sometimes by the deli.

Thanks Dorothy! I don't think I have ever had anything made with soy before. I'm guessing soy isn't very good? I'll look around and see what there is. Maybe even buy a few different brands to see which ones I like better. Thanks again!

Chrisy: I'd try to find a brand that doesn't have soy as the main ingredient. Carb Watchers is another brand that's good. Kroger carries them sometimes. But, to me, the soy taste is overpowering in many brands.

I put chicken in a crockpot with a jar of walmart black bean and corn salsa and let it cook today. Then tonight I served it in la tortilla green onion tortillas like a soft taco or burro. Yummy! It can't get any better than that when dinner is easy, healthy and the family likes it. (My teenage sons used regular soft tortillas)

No soy taste at all :)
There used to be one called Adios Carbs that was excellent, made with gluten and almond meal insead of wheat flour or soy. They don't make them anymore :(

Just curious but how does Mama Lupe's taste different from La Tortilla?

I don't like the taste of La Tortilla, but I use Mama Lupe's low-carb ones and this is a sweet treat:)

Spread 1 low-carb tortilla w/1tsp margarine
Sprinkle with splenda and cinnamon and bake (toaster oven is perfect) until the tortilla lightly browns and gets crispy.
Makes a nice treat:)

If you've got the calories and carbs to spare, bake the tortilla plain then top with sliced apples (very thinly sliced)then sprinkle with splenda and cinnamon and dot with margarine and bake until the apples are soft. (top with a soop of fat free vanilla ice cream if you dare!) :D

After reading this thread, I realized I could do more with these tortillas than just subbing them in for corn tortillas in quesadillas and tacos!

So today for lunch I have a large (80 cal) tortilla with 1 tb low fat cream cheese, some thin sliced deli turkey, romaine, tomato, pepprocini and a pickle slice all rolled up. I brought a side salad with garbanzos, corn, and green onions atop the lettuce to eat along side it. It is under 300 calories for the whole meal, including dressing, and I have a feeling will fill me up well!

Came up with another way to use these!
I love tortilla soup, so I make a super easy version of the spicy kind by adding a bit of taco seasoning, about 1/4th to 1/2 tsp., to a cup of hot chicken broth. I make my own broth and seasoning to control sodium, etc, but you could purchase seasoning and a good quality broth. I add to this 1/2 of one large lo carb wheat tortilla. I sometimes add the whole thing. I bet the green onion ones would be good it this as well. Many time I will eat this before a meal as it is very filling! I could easily be a light luch with a bit of chicken and/or cheese added.

I am addicted to these tortillas... it is a great way for me to get my fiber... I like to saute mushrooms and spinach.... put that in the middle with low fat cheese and saute the whole thing to make a quesadilla...

They are also a great snack with just cream cheese and/or hummus wrapped up with red pepper strips!

These are great to make chicken enchilladas! I open a big can of chicken, heat it up with some taco seasoning, put some in a tortilla and wrap it up. Place folded side down, cover with enchillda sauce and low fat velveeta. Delicious dinner!

I was so sad yesterday when I found out I'd either have to drive 30 miles to get them or order them online, but I went grocery shopping today at the military commisary, and there they were, and not too bad of a price! I bought the garlic herb ones and they smell fantastic. I'm having tuna wraps for lunch tomorrow and I can't wait to try them!

DMCOSS,
They have all kinds!!!! My favorites are the 50 calorie line and I have had the Green onion, the Garlic & Herb and the regular whole wheat, they are all great. I haven't tried the rosemany wraps yet, but I plan on it soon!

I got my order of these and they are good! I got the large wheat lo cal/carb and the evoo tomato basil wraps which were really good. The wheat have a bit of a soy/protein taste that is a little different, but easy to get used to. Made fajita wraps with the wheat and a spinach/redpepper/peccorino wrap with the tom/basil

FOX: Thanks so much for posting that website. I had no idea they had such a variety of products. I will definitely be ordering some products because I can only get one size of the low-fat/low carb tortilla. We love these at my house! And I will be trying some of these recipes!

Thanks again!

I found them at my local supermarket this weekend and wanted to try them but OUCH! they are twice as expensive for half as much as the usual tortillas I buy.

Guess I will have to watch and wait for them to go on sale :-(

These tortillas are great. I am just so glad that the commisary on base carries them. I live in Japan so if they ever stop carrying them I will be in trouble. I wrap almost everything in them that would have had a bagel, bread etc. I even make breakfast burritos with them. YUM!

I am in Regina, Sk Canada,
I did put it into my browser and I guess the thing I was doing wrong was not Capatalizing the word lol. I did a search for the nearest store and it says Data Error... Unable to locate the Zip Code in the range of zip codes So I guess They aren't in my area:(. They do look very yummy though. Thanx

I emailed their website to see if their are any retailers in Canada (are you in BC?) - I'm in Vancouver. No luck on a reply yet. I'd also love to have access to a 50 calorie tortilla! I am working on a recipe however to make some low cal ones.

Here is a recipe I got for some homemade tortillas, they work out to about 100 calories each, and are pretty easy to make. I've never made Tortillas in my life but thought I would give it a try, made some this morning. They were good! Very fresh..

Low Fat Tortillas

3 cups of Flour (I used Whole Wheat)
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. low fat margarine
1 1/4 cups warm water.

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in the margarine with a fork, pastry cutter or whatever (do it the old fashioned way and just use your hands). Add Warm water a bit at a time, until dough is soft & not sticky. Knead for a few minutes. Form 12 small dough balls, let them sit for 10 min, or longer. Can cover & refrigerate.

Roll dough ball using a rolling pin (or whatever, I don't own one, so I used a wine bottle!), make sure you dust the counter and each ball with flour each time you roll it out so it doesnt stick. Roll 'em thin. I just used a frying skillet and some pam, heat to med/high and then just cook them a few seconds per side. put them in a towel to keep them hot.

The key to making these lower calorie is in the flour (Whole wheat flour is 406 cal/cup). I might try low fat soy flour next time, or see what else is our there for low fat or low cal flour options. Can jazz them up too by adding other ingredients - add salsa or some tomatoe paste or pesto sauce in place of some of the water. Easy, and so good. There is something satisfying just knowing that you made them yourself, They are healthier because you know the ingredients (no additives, chemicals etc.) and fresher than any store bought type. Now if I can just make them 50 calories instead of 100....

They sound really good. The Tortilla's I've been using are 190 calories so would be nice to get the lower calorie ones. I googled the website you posted but for some reason it won't let me get into the website. I too have looked for them in canada and can't find them anywhere:(.

Fox-- I love these tortillas! They are so filling and healthy. And the chips and salsa recipe that you posted, yep, I love that!

I eat a tortilla almost every day at lunch with either 1 tbsp of PB or marg. and then green beans or broccoli on the side--so filling! I'm out of sandwich meat right now, but I was just thinking yesterday how wonderful a turkey wrap would be:)

This post inspired me to order from the website. My package should be waiting on me when I get home. I actually got the larger size tortillas and the Tomato & Basil wraps. I'm sure you will be seeing more posts from me as I figure out more ways to add them to my menus! Oh, Kroger online also has these and other harder to find foods for special order on their website.

I make wraps from these - vary it up a little, but I use a little Philadelphia lite veggie cream cheese, turkey breast deli meat, onions, pickles, lettuce, green and red peppers, or whatever veggies I feel like that day. Very satisfying!
