Mission Tortillas - Review

Monday, December 21, 2009 Posted by Rita A

Here on the West Coast we use tortillas almost as much as bread. Maybe even more. I am a long time consumer of Mission Tortillas. My family likes to make soft tacos, burritos, breakfast burritos and chicken wraps. Mission makes a nice variety of tortillas in corn, flour, and whole grains. Mission also produces healthy tortilla options of Life Balance, low carb, and fat free. Each is equally delicious.

I recently had the opportunity to sample Mission Life Balance Plus Whole Wheat Totillas. The life balance tortillas contain 23 vitamins & minerals including DHA Omega-3 and antioxidants. It is great to have all the nutrition added in the tortilla but for my family it is all about the taste. We loved them. The whole wheat flavor adds an almost nutty flavor. The texture is the same as any other Mission tortilla and if I did not tell my family they were eating something good for them they would never suspect a thing. The Life Balance Whole Wheat tortillas are just plain delicious. I love the recipe posted on the back of the package too. Buffalo Chicken tacos. Mmmmmm this would make a great dinner. Add a small green salad and we are good to go.

We are also big fans of the Mission Flour Tortillas. One of my favorites - I like to cut them in triangles and fry them, sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and enjoy. It makes a nice sweet crispy treat.

There is usually not a single day the I do not have tortillas in my kitchen. They are so versatile. Try Mission Tortillas today. They taste great and are fun to eat.

Many thanks to Lauren and Mission for providing the review samples.
