Think that going Paleo means you can never have Mexican food again? Think again. Not only do I have a whole book full of Mexican Paleo recipes, I recently perfected my Paleo tortilla recipe. Of course, you can always eat taco salad without a shell, but if you find yourself craving a classic taco or burrito, you’re going to want to use this recipe.
Even though traditional tortillas use corn instead of wheat, corn is still a grain (not a vegetable) – and many varieties of corn you find now are full of GMO, so those of us trying to live a Paleo lifestyle tend to avoid it.
Paleo Tortilla Ingredients
Instead of corn, the base of this tortilla recipe consists mostly of tapioca flour, with a little coconut flour. Although tapioca has some of the same problems as grains (high carb and little-to-no nutrition) it does not contain any of the anti-nutrients of grains. Therefore, these Paleo tortillas can be enjoyed as an occasional treat, but I don’t recommend eating them every day.
Chipotle Burritos, Made Paleo
I recently whipped up a batch of Paleo Tortillas when we stopped at Chipotle and took our typical bowls to go.
With Chipotle on the inside and these Paleo Tortillas on the outside, it took us back to the days when Chipotle first opened. :)
More recently, when Josh & Ryan were in town, I whipped up another batch to go with their Chipotle bowls.
