You have heard me mention them several times in the past, so finally, here is a chance for you to win some Canasta Uncooked Flour Tortillas and try them out for yourself. Since this will be my last GIVEAWAY for the year, there will be THREE (yes 3) winners!
If you live in San Diego and have never picked up a pack of Canasta Uncooked Flour Tortillas at your local grocery store, or if you’ve never ordered them online, you are missing out. These tortillas just melt in your mouth and taste so much better than cooked and packaged tortillas. In the past, we’ve typically purchased Guerrero brand flour tortillas which are readily available at most grocery stores. Although I’m not a huge fan of the Mission flour tortillas, because I find them to be too thick, I buy them when I need whole wheat tortillas or spinach flour tortillas. But otherwise I prefer these Canasta uncooked tortillas the rest of the time! When cooked, they fluff up and are nice and light. They taste fresh, home-made.
My husband and I first discovered Canasta Uncooked Flour Tortillas at our local Sprouts Market several years ago and have been using them since. In our house, we tend to have a variety of tortillas: corn, sprouted wheat, whole wheat, and flour. Although we don’t eat tortilla on a regular basis, we always seem to have a pack of these laying around in our fridge. After we first discovered Canasta, my husband fell in love and would even make it a point to go to Sprouts just to get their tortillas and would be bummed if I came home with any other brand. I’ve converted quite a few friends who have left my house in search of this particular brand. I’ve also recently been told that they may be coming out with other varieties of uncooked tortillas soon, such as whole wheat or sprouted wheat (so exciting!). If they do, I can’t wait to taste them, especially since I’ve never been a huge fan of most whole wheat or sprouted wheat tortillas. I can only imagine how awesome Canasta’s uncooked whole wheat tortillas would taste. Now if I could only convince them to develop an uncooked gluten-free tortilla, I’d be in tortilla bliss! =)
Lucky for me, this company is local to San Diego. About a few months ago, they asked if I wanted to feature some of my recipes on their site and run a giveaway. After getting to know their brand and company a little more, I realized that they are company that really prides themselves on making great tortillas. They do not have a lot of marketing, advertising or commercials. Instead they focus on making their product taste great.
If you live in San Diego, Coachella, or Imperial Valley, you can find these tortillas at your local VONS, Ralphs, Albertson’s, Food4Less, Sprouts, and Northgate grocery stores. You can also purchase these tortillas directly on the Canasta Uncooked Flour Tortillas website at a great whole sale price, or on amazon. There are currently two types of Canasta Uncooked Flour tortillas, one with lard (green writing) and one without (blue writing), so be sure to check and purchase the one without lard. Their online packs come in larger quantities, but they keep for months in the fridge and even longer in the freezer. You can also follow Canasta on Facebook or Twitter for online coupons.
Here are a few ideas on how you can use these tortillas:
- Roasted Poblano Mushroom Quesadillas
- Special Black Bean Burritos
- Indian Spiced Tofu with Peppers and Onions
- Tofu Scramble
- Fresh Wrap with Chipotle Pepper Hummus
- Seared Tempeh Wrap with Thai Peanut Sauce
- Four Bean Quinoa Veggie Burritos
