I happened upon La Tortilla Factory’s Dark Teff Tortillas today at my local health food store. I had some leftover grilled chicken that I had been planning to put on top of a salad for lunch, but thought that a wrap sounded much better. I got home and made a fabulous wrap from these tortillas. First, the feel & texture of these tortillas is the closest thing to what a “normal” flour tortilla feels like. I haven’t felt that since before I went GF over 3 years ago. I had high hopes for this baby. I heated it, as directed on the package, for 15 seconds in the microwave. I then made my wrap with a bunch of fresh spinach, cut up grilled chicken breast, provolone cheese, tomato & Frank’s Red Hot. I wrapped it up (IT DIDN’T CRACK OR CRUMBLE!) and sliced in half. I was amazed. I was so stinkin’ excited that I didn’t get a picture, I sat down to taste my new love. WOW! I was so, so, so pleasantly surprised! I honestly can’t really tell you that this tastes much different from what I remember a “normal” flour tortilla tasting like. The tortilla remained the same texture the entire time I was eating (about 30 minutes….it didn’t get hard or stale-like after heating). If you have heated a brown rice tortilla and then made a wrap before, you know what I mean about the texture changing. These were so pliable! I could gush about these for hours! I have all kinds of things planned for these. Tomorrow? Another wrap, but this one on the panini press. :) Then, burritos and maybe chimichangas or chicken enchiladas! Yes, I like corn tortillas, a lot, but there is just something about a good flour tortilla.
Now the details…kinda pricey. $4.31 for 6. OUCH! So, you can see why these may not be a regular purchase. Facts:
Made with Whole Grain Dark Teff & Whole Grain Millet Flour (15 grams of whole grain per wrap!)
Zero grams Trans Fats.
Non-Aluminum Baking Powder
Smooth light texture
Hint of real honey. No artificial sweeteners
Wrap Size : 9.00” to 10.00”

Definitely want to try the Ivory Teff ones too. These were awesome & I can’t wait to make another wrap tomorrow!
