As a personal chef and someone who loves to cook and eat healthy foods, I am constantly on the look-out for new and exciting products to try. One of the best new products I have discovered in the world of gluten free, grain free and Paleo, are the Siete Brand tortillas. These tortillas are nothing short of amazing! They come in three varieties- Almond flour, cassava -coconut, and chia- coconut. Despite being totally grain free, these tortillas are soft, pliable, and very tasty. No need to struggle through another taco made with a stiff and chewy rice flour tortilla! These tortillas are wheat, corn, soy, egg and dairy free! They are also slightly lower in carbs than a regular tortilla. The almond flour variety have 7 grams of net carbs per tortilla. Compare that to a regular sized corn tortilla that has 9.5 grams of net carbs.
So if you are looking for a great grain free replacement for the standard tortilla in all your favorite Mexican recipes, (I use them to scoop up curries too!) then definitely give these a try. They are available at Whole Foods, in the refrigerated tortilla section, or online at sietefoods.com
