Fresh Tortilla Breakfast Cups with Tortilla Land Tortillas {review & recipe}

As a proper Texas girl, I have been in love with tortillas since birth. Everything is better when wrapped in a tortilla. But as a mom I have become increasingly aware of the excess and unnecessary ingredients in packaged tortillas. For the major packaged tortilla brands this includes a long list of preservatives, MSG (seriously why?!),  hydrogenated oils, corn syrup (again why?) and other things that if we simply made them at home would never ever be in a tortilla recipe.

But who has the time to make tortillas on a daily basis? Not I said the fly. That’s why I was thrilled to give Tortilla Land flour tortillas a try. With five simple ingredients; wheat flour, water, canola oil, salt, and sugar, Tortilla Land Flour Tortillas are all natural, no cholesterol, no saturated fat, and 0 trans fat. A massive burrito size tortilla is the same amount of calories and less fat than most major brand taco sized tortillas I found.

Because Tortilla Land Tortillas are made without preservatives and all-natural ingredients they are packaged uncooked. Simply place on a medium high skillet and wait about 30 to 45 seconds until bubbles start to rise. Flip the tortilla and cook for an additional 30 seconds until golden. In 60 seconds you have a fresh practically homemade tortilla.

The verdict: Amazing! These tortillas reminded me of the fresh tortillas that my nanny’s mom would make and I would devour when I was younger. Thin, flavorful, and remarkably fresh, Tortilla Land Flour Tortillas are perfect for quesadillas, tacos, wraps and more. Trust me I tired them on everything. Two slippers up!

Pros:

  • all natural
  • fresh
  • no preservatives
  • 5 ingredients
  • no cholesterol
  • great taste and texture
Cons:
  • The packaging is excessive. I found it big and bulky and took up space in my packed refiderator.

Tortilla land also has a line of wheat and corn tortillas (that I did not get to try but can imagine they are just as good). You can find them in most major cities in the refrigerated section of your store. To find a store near you visit  http://www.tortillaland.com/where-to-buy/

I enjoyed testing and trying these tortillas. Here’s a fun recipe for the entire family to join in on. Makes a good back to school breakfast treat. Check back tomorrow for a more adult friendly brunch version that we love.

Fresh Tortilla Breakfast Cups makes however many you want
  • Tortilla Land Flour Tortillas 1 to 2 per person
  • eggs, 1 per tortilla
  • cheese, cheddar or monteray jack
  • variety of vegetables such as: red and green bell pepper, spinach, corn, green onion, mushrooms, tomato, or onion
  • variety of cooked breakfast meats such as: bacon or breakfast sausage
Preheat oven to 350°F. Chop your vegetable and meat choices in small pieces.
In an ungreased muffin tin, place the tortillas in a muffin cup, pressing to form into the cup.
In a bowl, scramble the egg and combine your choice of vegetables and/or breakfast meats. Beat gently. You can do this in one large bowl and evenly divide into the tortilla cups or get the family involved by giving everyone a bowl with a beaten egg and allow them to create their own breakfast up by choosing their own ingredients. Fill the tortilla cups to the rim of the muffin tin with the egg mixture.
Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper and top with a tablespoon of cheese. Place in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until the tortilla is golden and the egg is fully cooked.
A fun crispy little breakfast package. My favorite combo: red bell pepper, corn, spinach, cheese, topped with hot sauce.
The husband and Mia’s favorite was spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, breakfast sausage and cheese.
