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.
