WHAT: Mis­sion Street Tacos Tor­tillas

STATS: Vary by fla­vor. Two flour tor­tillas con­tain 150 calo­ries and 3 fat, 26 car­bo­hy­drate, 1 fiber, 1 su­gar and 4 pro­tein grams. Three corn tor­tillas con­tain 100 calo­ries and 1.5 fat, 19 car­bo­hy­drate, 3 fiber, 2 su­gar and 2 pro­tein grams. We found them at Tar­get, 420 S. Univer­sity Ave., Lit­tle Rock. Visit mis­sion­menus.com. THE SKINNY: If your mis­sion is watch­ing por­tion sizes, eat­ing fewer calo­ries and car­bo­hy­drates and/or avoid­ing gluten, Mis­sion has new of­fer­ings for you.

Street Tacos Tor­tillas, avail­able in flour and corn, are the cutesy, culi­nary way to say tiny tor­tillas. The best diet bar­gain is the gluten-free, lower-fat and lower-car­bo­hy­drate corn va­ri­ety, which al­lows din­ers to have three tor­tillas for 50 fewer calo­ries than just two of the flour tor­tillas.

Mis­sion sug­gests us­ing the petite discs for “taco slid­ers” and “mini taco cups.” Us­ing beans, veg­eta­bles and lean pro­tein as the fill­ing would make them all the more fill­ing.
