Simple Gluten-Free Breakfast Tacos

I’ve never said no to a breakfast taco (and I’m sure you haven’t either)! While my love for breakfast tacos is undying, my commitment to making healthier choices is also at the top of my list. I always make an effort to swap for higher quality, better ingredient foods and healthy breakfast ideas.

Ever since I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, I’ve educated myself on food and pay close attention to the ingredients that are in the food I’m eating. Participating in rounds of Whole30 and Keto have been instrumental in changing the way I eat and shop for food. I’m going to write a full blog post on this soon so stay tuned.

I recently discovered Maria and Ricardo’s Quinoa Flour Tortillas at Whole Foods and decided to give them a try.

I love that brands are now coming out with various gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free options for basic foods like tortillas. As someone with a thyroid disorder, I try to limit my gluten as much as possible to off-set the inflammation in my body so these Quinoa Flour tortillas are a great alternative and I added them to my gluten free food list.

I opted to just make a basic quick healthy breakfast taco with Vital Farms Pasture-Raised eggs, tomatoes, an avocado, HEB brand bacon, and Maria and Ricardo’s Quinoa Flour tortillas. This is a quick 10-minute gluten free recipe, which I know you’ll appreciate.

Review of Maria and Ricardo’s Quinoa Flour Tortillas

  • Texture:
    • They’re a pretty sturdy tortilla and have a good texture. They held the contents of the taco well and didn’t get too soggy.
    • They’re a little firmer than regular tortillas.
  • Taste:
    • They taste pretty good. Now don’t get me wrong, they don’t taste like handmade, fresh tortillas but they can pass for it.
    • They do have a slight smell – not off-putting in any way – but you can typically smell quinoa in any dish that it’s included as an ingredient.
    • Leave maybe, a slight after-taste but nothing that is unenjoyable.
  • Preparation:
    • The tortillas are in the refrigerated produce section at Whole Foods (so don’t think they’re by the bread) and the directions say to keep them refrigerated or frozen until use.
    • You heat the tortillas to your desired toastiness on a grill, in a pan or in the oven. I did mine in a pan on the stove and it was pretty simple.
  • Price:
    • Great price point at $3.99 for 6 tortillas!
  • Keto / Whole 30 Friendly
    • These tortillas are more gluten-free, dairy-free friendly than anything.
    • They’re not Keto compliant as they have 22 net carbs per tortilla.
    • They’re not strict Whole 30 compliant either because of the corn syrup solids – if you’re not doing a super strict Whole 30 – then they’ll definitely work for you.

All-in-all, I like the tortillas and plan on trying more products from this brand. They have original, organic, flour, corn and other types of specialty tortillas as well.
