Mission Gluten Free / Wheat Free Soft Tacos

Recommended Posts

I am on cloud 9.  I had heard that Mission was making a gluten-free and Wheat Free tortilla, but I was afraid that it was just going to be a soft corn tortilla. I found a package of Mission gluten-free soft tortillas at my local supermarket and tried them tonight.  I am soooo happy.  They don't rise as much as the "home made - restaurant made flour tortillas that I absolutely love, but these guys are a very acceptable second.  I made a cheese quesadilla using these tortillas with melted butter in the pan with some good shredded cheese and some slice avacodos on top and finally felt like I was "there".  They have a rice flour base, with lots of other stuff, and they are really good. So... I have found my pasta solution and my flour tortilla solution and now I just have to work on my bread!

They are not around DFW area of Texas yet.  I heard they were on the west coast.  But every time I pass the tortilla section I look, hope they come out nationally! :)

I found them at a Stater Bros. (large market chain in Southern California).  One of the managers told me that they had just received their first shipment.  I would ask at any markets that handle Mission products and see if they will order for you.

And if you read further :" No, our corn production lines are dedicated to corn products only. Wheat flour tortillas are produced on dedicated lines."

And

"All Mission® plants have strict food safety programs in place, including a very comprehensive Allergen Control Program."

Many many of us eat Mission chips and tortillas without ill effect. Just because something is made in the same manufacturing plant or complex does not mean other foods will contain it. The whole world is a " shared facility". Most restauruants and grocery stores are " shared facilities". Many of us live in homes with some gluten eating - " shared facility". Shared equipment would be a greater concern.

Here is the ingredients list from the Mission website:

I'm sure it must have some corn starch in it (not sure about the first item in the list.) but I have eaten several of these tortillas without a problem.

 

According to the webpage, these are only available on the west coast right now.

Sorry to hijack your thread. I realize you are not talking about the regular corn tortillas and chips but, I think that was what the other poster was referring to.

I think you are right, but thought it was worth adding information since the orignal thread was about the soft wheat free Mission Tortillas.  Kareng, I really do appreciate your help and advice on this forum.  I don't know how you stay on top of all of this stuff.

I don't know how I do either..... Especially since I can't make a good quesadilla here in Kansas! Mail me some? Lol

The best bread I've come across is canyon bake house 7grain it's so good but can get mushy if mayo and tomato touch the bread lettuce and meat barrier work good

Sorry this is in reference to the canyon bakehouse bread 7grain.. you also have to keep it refrigerated and it last a long time.

I totally agree.  Not quite a wheat flour tortilla, but darned close.  I've made cheese filled quesadillas with these and the tortillas seem to bubble up and brown just like their wheat predessors.  I mostly use flour tortillas for a few kinds ot tacos and for quesadillas, so I'm pretty happy.  I wish we could get Mission to hurry up and get these out the the rest of the country.  BTW, if folks are up tight about added ingredients these are probably not for you.  They have lots of additives, but I'll happily eat them for the few times a month that I need my quesadilla fix.

Thank you for doing your due diligence and sharing it with "us."  I certainly aim to try them in the near future.
