Flour Tortilla Tips & Recipes

Tortilla Recipes for Dieters

One of my favorite recipes is 'frying' flour tortillas in no calorie, butter-flavored cooking spray. As they 'fry' they puff up and can easily be pulled apart. It's like getting two tortillas for the Calorie-Price of one!  

What a Diet Bargain. And at only 80 calories per flour tortilla, they make a tasty addition to any diet plan.

Need a quick, low calorie dessert for a sugar fix? Simply fill tortilla with reduced calorie pie filling, such as Apple Pie Filling with Splenda.  

Place filling onto one side of the tortilla and fold. Sprinkle top with a bit of ground cinnamon and powder sugar.

Here are a few more tips and quick flour tortilla recipes that we hope generate ideas to freshen up your diet plan as you loose weight:
