WIN-It-Wednesday: Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery NEW Tortillas

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

I just love it when one of my all-time favorite gluten-free brands comes out with new products. Like last Spring when Rudi’s came out with their hamburger and hotdog rolls. THAT was a treat!

That’s why I was so excited after trying the newest edition to  Rudi’s Gluten-Free Breads family of  products: TORTILLLAS!

These tortillas are delicious. Soft, pliable and dying to be wrapped around your favorite fillings.

And if right about now you are thinking to yourself: “What’s the big deal? There are other gluten-free tortillas on the market” – Get THIS! … They come in flavors… yes FLAVORS! Besides the versatile Plain Tortillas, there are also 2 other varieties: Spinach and Fiesta. They all top out at 5 grams of fiber per serving, and are “made with stuff you can pronounce and ingredients you recognize.”

The Fiesta Tortilla is made with whole grains spiced up with bell pepper, jalapeno, onion and garlic flavors. This spicy wrap is calling Mexican food and spice-addicts everywhere. Hola Fiesta!

The Spinach Tortilla is perfect for the veggie lovers in all of us. Pack it with a soft spreadable herbed cheese (or cheese substitute) and layer it with fresh cut veggies; or enjoy sliced turkey, tomatoes and cheddar for a traditional lunchtime treat.

And let’s not forget the Plain Tortilla… although not as fancy and spiced up as the others this wrap is the most versatile of the round-up. I love to make breakfast sandwich wraps… stuffed with egg, ham, and a slice of good old American cheese. A perfect wake-me-up!

I am so thrilled that Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery will be sponsoring the next two week’s Win-it-Wednesday’s on!

A total of FOUR (Yes… 4!) BeFreeForMe members will be selected to win a gift pack of Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas – one of each of the three flavor. Two winners will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST, and two more winners will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 29, 2012 at 11:59PM. SO – make sure you enter to win two times!

Friday Favorite: Maria & Ricardo’s Gluten-Free Tortillas

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

For the second week in a row we will stay on the theme of good gluten-free Mexican style foods that can be enjoyed at home, so with that in mind this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe goes to Maria & Ricardo’s Gluten-Free Tortillas.

If you’re craving to make an authentic street vendor style Burrito that is bursting at the seams with grilled chicken, beef, guacamole, beans, rice and chipotle seasoning this gluten-free tortilla is for you!

Being from New England, I grew up on fish & chips from the corner restaurant for a quick and easy meal. I never had a burrito until I visited my older sister in San Francisco while she was attending college.  And this experience was one that I will never forget.

Burritos in San Francisco have a cult-like following. On every street corner in the Mission District, are tiny, family-owned burrito shops, called Taquerias, that make the best burritos in the world. Each burrito made is packed with love and good, fresh food.

These burritos are one of the things I miss the most since going gluten-free.  One of my favorite food-bloggers, Dabney Gough, and also one of my sister’s burrito loving buds from San Francisco, describes the love of burritos the way only a San Franciscan could in this fantastic blog post.

I’ve learned since going gluten-free that you have to take eating Burritos, literally, into your own hands. And this, my fellow burrito loving amigos, is where Maria & Ricardo’s gluten-free tortillas come into play!

The Maria & Ricardo gluten-free tortillas are soft, pliable and the perfect tortilla for making gluten-free burritos, soft tacos, or quesadillas at home. Made with sorghum, potato and tapioca flours, these gluten-free rounds-of-joy are great for stuffing, wrapping and rolling.

Currently available in the frozen department of only a handful of Whole Foods and some smaller supermarkets, the quest for these tortillas are worth the while. I have gone as far to ask my local grocers to carry them – and suggest you do the same.

Good ole’ San Franciscan Taqueria-style burritos made in my own kitchen in the heart of New England is the reason this week’s Friday Favorite honors goes to Maria & Ricardo Gluten-Free Tortillas.
