With all the focus on low-carb and clean-eating, tasty carb sources such as tortillas are often harshly judged. But in a world where Taco Tuesday is an important addition to any week, it seems that tortillas are still holding their own. And honestly, tortillas not so bad. Substitute a fiber-rich wholewheat or wholegrain version instead of the usual refined one and you can shamelessly indulge in front of your carb-fearing friends.
One of the simplest ways to add these carbs to your weekly meal plan is by making wraps. You can make them by simply shoving all the ingredients you love into a tortilla, then wrapping it and that’s it! Your creativity is only limited by what you enjoy and, of course, what you have in the kitchen.
These recipes are proof of just some of the variations you can try out using tortillas:
