Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I like to make a variety of deli roll ups with different meats and cheeses. I don't use whole wheat tortillas, though. I don't like the texture. These make a great summer appetizer. Making the yourself tastes way better than the ones from the store. You can control how much cream cheese or mayo you use.

I make roll ups all the time and the key is to slice very thinly. If you have a mandolin, use it (carefully!) Also, make sure you've tried the tortillas before you use them. The tortilla can make or break the roll up! I'm not a fan of the whole wheat tortilla, but you can get the low carb tortillas that have fiber but have a better taste, in my opinion.

I'm with you, BeckySue. Mission brand makes a carb smart flour tortilla with only 6 net carbs each. As you said, they have a better taste than most flour tortillas which I find to be chewy/gummy and/or too thick. The problem is that, depending on where you shop, a pkg of 8 tortillas costs between $3-$4 It's not necessary to cost so much. It's just that manufacturers love to rip off captive audiences like diabetics. I can't even consider eating cheaper tortillas at 30 carbs each. I love to use these for wrap sandwiches. They aren't very big so you can't make a very large wrap, but if you only tuck in one end they'll work out and at 6 net carbs, you could always have two if you wanted.

These look like the perfect thing to bring to work for lunch during the week!
