Food Find: La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Tortillas

by TrainerMomma on July 14, 2011

As you know, I’m now living in a small town. A very small town. Getting stuck in traffic means catching a red light at one of the two stoplights in town. I’m tickled to be here for many reasons, however there have been some sacrifices that can be summed up in four words:

No Target.

No Costco.

As a result, I have humbly returned to Walmart the past month. You see, Wally and I had a falling out a few years back. Like all grudges and tifs, I can’t remember quite what happened, who said what, etc. I believe it had something to do with it being too far away from my house and all the workers I asked for assistance were mysteriously never in their “department” and wouldn’t/couldn’t help me find things since they were too busy texting their boyfriends. But alas, Wally and I have put our differences aside, he graciously has let bygones be bygones and now I can’t seem to stay away from the place.

I have noticed a small town Walmart is different from the city version of Walmart.  They really don’t carry all the options that large city versions do.

So, you can see how tickled I was to discover these yesterday on the very bottom shelf of the bread/tortilla aisle:

Eureka!

My favorite whole wheat tortillas!

These La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious tortillas are hands down my fav when it comes to tortillas. Here’s why:

- No lard or shortening are involved at all. These do have some expellar pressed canola oil, which I feel much better about eating than animal fat.

- It is made from real whole grains — none of this “enriched” whole grain baloney.

- There is no saturated fat. Zippo.

- They are CRAZY high in fiber. Hello 12g!

- They are low in calories: 80 calories. This is mind boggling.

- They have 8 grams of protein.

- They are huge! At a beautiful 7 1/2 inches across, they actually hold food inside.

- They taste normal. I have a phobia against “diet food” which should really be classified as “corrugated cardboard”. No weird, stretchy, rubbery, diet-y taste anywhere. Just a normal tortilla eating experience.

So, I know you were concerned, but we are all set on the tortilla front over here in Uvalde, TX.

Just one more reason why I love this place.

No Costco or Target that is a big sacrifice.

Recently I found these molds for taco salad shells and you can use your favirote tortilla. I got mine at a rink a dink kitchen store in Arizona but I know they do sell them online. Fun to use and can have healthy taco salad.

I, too, live in a small town – make that the middle of nowhere – and usually have these on hand. :) They are good, but I do think the Joseph’s flax bread is even better.
