    We haven't tried it ourselves without the eggs, but that might work! Let us know if you do try it :)

Any suggestions in place of the red pepper flakes & chili powder? I love spicy but am breastfeeding & these have upset little one in the past.

These look good! Do you have a favorite low carb one that is decent for you? A lot of tortillas I see are high in carbs!

    Do a quick ingredient check! I like the Spinach tortillas.
