So, what are your tortilla options?

  1. Buy them online or in the store. To save time you can buy low carb or keto wraps/tortillas. Most of them will be made from cassava flour, coconut flour or almond flour. Just make sure they are pliable enough to fold and hold the filling.
  2. Make your own tortillas. I made my own for this recipe and they turned out amazing. There are multiple low carb and keto recipes for tortillas online. Here is the link to the recipe I used.
