Rudi’s Gluten Free Tortillas Review and Giveaway

Last Updated on

Since many of my readers, and myself, have been on the search for good gluten free tortillas, I approached Rudi’s Gluten Free Bakery for some samples for a review and giveaway. As many of you know I recently created a wonderful soft gluten free tortilla recipe, but to get it soft you must use Expandex, and I’d really prefer not to use any modified ingredients. With that in mind, Rudi’s was one of my first choices because they use natural ingredients.

My Review

On first inspection, they appeared to be similar to rice tortillas in texture, but much thinner and more pliable. Once heated up in the microwave they softened up quite a bit. You can roll them, re-roll them, and never crack or break.

You can use them stuffed with your favorite filling and heated in the microwave; for enchiladas (love it!) and burritos (heat the tortillas in a skillet); cold wraps (provides a great chewy texture at room temperature, though you can heat them); or just plain right out of the bag!

Flavors: The Plain, is just that. They do not take any flavor away from the ingredients that you use to stuff them. The Spinach does not give off a spinach flavor, yet supplies the health benefits of the spinach. The Fiesta has a bit of jalapeno powder, therefore, are just a slight spicy. I love a nice little kick! It’s not very spicy, just a tiny bit, just enough, though. You may not notice it when the tortilla is stuffed. I really liked them the best. Of course, each flavor will serve their purpose. What will you use them for?

Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  31. Im very into Couponing. A member of my church just had to permanently go on a strict Gluten free diet. I have been on a mission to help her find coupons and product to ease the cost burden that has suddenly been put on her. I’m having a very hard time finding coupons. Desperately trying to find help for this lady!

  32. FYI–I’m following you on Pinterest, too. (Carolanne-Carrie Hecox-Flanders) I REALLY want those tortillas!!!

  33. I have LONGED for GF tortillas. I’ve tried making my own, but the only thing I succeed at is smoking up the house and getting lovely calls from our alarm company asking if we need fire support. (My husband says: “No. My wife is just cooking!) Please enter me in this give-away!

  34. Since a stem cell transplant 5 years ago I have developed some allergies and intolerance’s…..gluten being one of them. It took a while to pin point my gastrointestinal discomfort and sometimes it is depressing not being able to enjoy foods……I like to eat………but there are quite a few amazing products out there for convenience….Rudi’s is one of them.

  35. Commenting on this post and requesting to be entered in this fantastic giveaway . I can explain that I wish to enter because I have yet to try a GF tortilla that wasn’t breaking on the first try. If these really work I would love them.

  36. I would like to enter the giveaway. My son has several food allergies to include wheat. These would be perfect for him as he always feels left out on Mexican nights.

  37. I would love to be entered in this giveaway. Since being diagnosed Celiac in March, I ONLY buy Rudi’s Gluten Free Bread products and I am anxiously awaiting to try the tortillas.

  38. I am a new mom to a beautiful 2 month old baby girl- Brooke. Brooke was having a really hard time since she was 5 weeks old. Always crying. I brought her to the lactation consultant and they recommended me to be gluten free, dairy free, soy free, corn free and nut free. The wraps unused to eat had corn flower. I asked about corn starch and bc it’s such a small amount they said it was fine-Just nothing made primarily of corn. Finding foods has been a challenge! Never mind foods that taste good and don’t crack and break all apart! I am entering for a chance to taste these wraps and hopefully expand my food choices to keep my baby girl happy. She’s been doing much better since I restricted my diet!

  39. What a great giveaway!! I live in a small rural town with not many GF options at the store. Both my husband and I are GF, so I’d love to win! :)

  40. Please enter me in the giveaway. I have been using corn tortillas for everything and always end up having to eat it with a fork. I would love to win the tortillas!

  43. I actually just posted a question to our CrunchyHippie community asking if anyone had found a good, organic/natural gluten free tortilla wrap! My boyfriend and I are the creator of CrunchyHippie.com and it’s purpose is to share green products/green businesses with consumers who are looking for healthy alternative products~ We currently love Rudi’s for their breads but haven’t seen the tortillas at the natural grocers we shop at?! where and when can we find them, I can’t wait to be able to make veggie wraps that won’t crack open and apart! whoo hoo!

  44. I just liked the Gluten Free Carla on Facebook, would like to be entered in the contest so I can taste the product and see if I like them as much as I think I will.

  55. I used to use tortillas on a daily basis but since going gluten free I have not been able to find a good gluten free version.

  56. Please enter me. I’m gluten intolerant and am always looking for good tortillas. The closest I’ve come is food for life brown rice. They’re not bad, but I have to steam them to make them pliable enough to wrap into burritos. These sound great, and I’d love to try them.

I will also take the other steps listed for additional entries.

We do pretty well with foods, including creating our own recipes, but she has been waiting as patiently as possible to try these tortillas! I had actually won some for her a few weeks ago, but the lady doing the contest gave mine away to someone else (boo for her), so we were very disappointed to say the least. Since these aren’t available in our stores yet, I would love to surprise her with this awesome pack of goodies!
