My New Favorite Gluten-Free Tortillas

My New Favorite Gluten-Free Tortillas

Let’s face it. Good gluten-free tortillas are hard to come by. Not only are there very few options, but the options we do have provide challenges. Memories of soft flour tortillas are but a distant memory for those of us who have lived gluten free for more than a few years. But those memories are soft and sweet, aren’t they? Don’t get me wrong. I’m very thankful for brown rice tortillas, but they do not behave at all like flour tortillas. They are tough, thick, and difficult to maneuver. They break easily and completely disintegrate when they come in contact with moisture. Wraps crack, burritos ooze, and pinwheels are just not even an option.

Until now.

Would you believe that these tortillas are gluten free?

They are thin like flour tortillas.

They bend like flour tortillas.

But they are completely gluten free.

And they come in plain, fiesta, and spinach flavors.

The spinach tortilla wrapped perfectly around my egg salad.

Most gluten-free wraps fall apart after the first bite.

But these pass The Bite Test.

And The Squeeze Test.

But what about with a juicy filling like Pam’s Easy Chicken Tacos?

Chicken slow cooked in salsa provided the perfect test of durability. Served both taco and burrito style, this Fiesta Tortilla held up despite the moistness of the filling.

Not only can these tortillas bend without breaking, they can roll.


A perfect almond butter and jelly snack.

I think we have pinwheels in our future!

So who makes these gluten-free wonder tortillas?

Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery now makes three types of gluten-free tortillas, which are also dairy free and nut free.  Rudi’s Plain Tortillas, Fiesta Tortillas, and Spinach Tortillas are equally delicious. I can’t even choose a favorite, and for this picky cat that’s saying a lot.

Readers, dish!

  • Have you tried Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas?
  • Have you found a gluten-free tortilla that you love?
  • What is the hardest filling to wrap in a gluten-free tortilla?

(Disclaimer:  I have no connection to nor was I paid by Rudi’s Bakery. I did receive complimentary samples sent for me to taste and review. I do not give positive reviews just because the product was free but will always give my honest opinion.)

    Aaaaahhhhh! I have been looking for them everywhere! They look so good!

  2. Mari says:

    I have also been looking for them all over with no luck. I wish someone sold them online. I really want to try the spinach and fiesta favors.

  3. Lynne says:

    After reading your review, I immediately called my local natural foods store. They will be ordering them today and I will have them next week….can’t wait!

  4. Amanda says:

    Ooh, this is great! I did buy some gluten-free tortilla wraps a while back and they were AWFUL. And yes, they did fall apart, negating the “wrap” part. I couldn’t even finish the package. I love Rudi’s bread, so I will have to try these the next time I go to the store! I wish you would pick a favorite, though :)

  5. Shelly says:

    Sounded good.

  6. Jana says:

    I love them for a wrap with hummus, spinach, peppers, turkey and avacado. Tried them at LA GF expo last spring sponsored by Celiac Disease Foundation So Calif. My local GF bankers (aren’t we lucky in Clovis/Fresno???) has them in stock. My only draw back is that they are expensive, $8 for pkg of 8. Worth it though.

  7. Julie Pederson says:

    Does anyone know if they contain corn or cornstarch. My husband doesn’t eat gluten OR corn or sugar or dairy!
    Thanks!! Looks great!

  8. Great review Heather. Love this one. Your fun loving personality shines through! I might just have to get me some and I don’t even follow a gluten free diet.

  9. Lynne L says:

    Sadly, Rudi’s is not available up here in Ontario. Do you hear that Maggie?????!!!!!

    Thanks for making me drool though Heather lol!

  10. Lauren says:

    Blast! I thought you were going to have a recipe for them! They look so good though! Do
    they have xanthan gum in them? I try to avoid that because it seems to bother my stomach, but they are awfully tempting! :-)

  11. Marguerite Hollingsworth says:

    I buy them at Costco, but the price has almost doubled in the past several months. I think they may be getting greedy, and that makes me angry.
    They are, however, the best tortillas I’ve ever had, that includes the original white tortillas from my past.

    • Heather says:

      I had no idea they were even available at Costco! That is frustrating when good gluten-free products are so expensive. That’s one of the reasons why I’ve stopped purchasing products and began eating more foods that are just naturally gluten-free. But sometimes you just want a tortilla, right??? Thanks for sharing this, Marguerite!

  12. Jaime S. says:

    I’ve just started following a gluten-free diet due to a thyroid disease. Does anyone know if these fry up nicely, like regular tortillas, for a tostada, or tacos? Thanks! Hopefully I can find them locally.

  13. carla says:

    How are they after freezing? Anything like that here is in the freezer.

    • Heather says:

      Carla, I haven’t had any trouble with freezing these tortillas. In fact, I’ll buy several packs and keep some on hand in the freezer. Hope you can find them and enjoy them!!

  14. Mark says:

    I have been gluten free for 7 years and Rudis are the best wraps.

  15. H. Holmes says:

    Can you buy these in Canada? If so, what stores in Victoria, BC?

A Curious Girl in the Gluten-Free World

I'm a curious girl, wife, teacher, fitness fanatic, gluten-free foodie, high-raw vegan, and Mama Cat living in NYC. I've made the transition from baking and cooking gluten-free to creating raw vegan recipes that are naturally gluten free. My gluten intolerance opened up my diet to a whole new world of nutritious plant-based foods. While I'm not 100% vegan, it's my favorite way to eat, and making and sharing raw foods makes me giddy. Living in the City has its joys and challenges, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with you.
