    Low carb tortilla ideas

    I just bought these from netrition.com and let me tell you they are the best things to ever happen for a dieter. The small ones have 11g carbs, 8 fiber..the big ones have 19g carbs, 14g fiber. They make awesome wraps and quesadillas. Here are a couple ideas w/nutrition info:

    Chicken Quesadilla:

    2 oz grilled chicken breast, cut up
    1 large low carb tortilla
    1/4 cup fat free cheddar cheese
    chopped scallions
    1/8 cup canned tomatoes w/green chiles
    1-2 tbs. light sour cream for dipping

    real simple...put the tortilla in a non-stick skillet, add everything else to one side of it, fold it over...plate it, cut it into 4 wedges, and eat. sooo yummy

    243 cals, 35g protein, 22 carbs, 14 fiber, 6.8 fat, 1.7 saturated fat

    Buffalo Chicken wrap:

    2oz grilled chicken breast
    red hot sauce
    1/4 cup fat free cheddar
    lettuce & tomato
    Roll all ingredients into a large low carb tortilla

    Pesto Chicken wrap:

    2oz grilled chicken breast
    1/4 cup fat free mozzarella
    basil mixed w/just 2 good mayo
    tomato
    Roll all ingredients into a large low carb tortilla

    The wraps have similar nutrition fact as the quesadilla...and they're all a welcome addition to my usually bland healthy diet.

    My personal favorite.

    Low Carb tortillas.
    Turkey Pepperoni (use as much as you think you need. 1 package is good enough for my wife and me.)
    Green Pepper (optional, diced)
    Red Onion (optional, diced)
    Black Olives (optional)
    Mushrooms (optional)

    Sautee ingredients in pan with a small amount extra virgin olive oil. When cooked to an acceptable level (veggies soft) Place on tortillas and add:
    Low fat or Fat free Mozzerella (if your diet permits)
    Pizza or spaghetti sauce
    Mrs. Dash
    Garlic.

    I made these about a month ago and can't get enough of them, though I only eat them once a week max. Mark

    Is the brand Tortilla Factory? I have used those, they have the same carb and fiber count and are advertised as very low carbs. I have found them at the local supermarkets. In fact, they're getting easier to find.

    Don't worry, they're awesome...they really don't taste much different from regular tortillas. I think they're a lot better than the low-carb subway wraps. They're not all chewy and ****.
