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

i am wondering why your diabetic recipes are usually so high in carbs? keeping my carb count down is the only way i am able to control my blood sugar, along with my insulin. lower carb recipes would be awesome!

All of our recipes follow the ADA's guidelines for daily recommended nutrition, which include 60g of carbs per meal. One serving of these tortillas comes in at roughly 1/3 of that.

Thanks for your suggestions. Please feel free to adjust the amount of seasonings to match your palate.

The cumin overtakes all other flavors, also the baking sheet needs to be oiled a little otherwise the tortillas get very dry.
