Mexican Tortillas are delicious and actually vegan and gluten free.

Shocked? (╬⁽⁽ ⁰ ⁾⁾ Д ⁽⁽ ⁰ ⁾⁾)

As we age, unfortunately, our body's digestion also changes. Sometimes these digestive shifts are for better, and, other times, it can be the worst news--especially for those Dyckman foodies or NYC ones who love to taste new, bold flavors.

So Mexican tortillas are gluten free?


The main ingredient in Mexican Tortillas are either flour or corn.

No way you can go bad with these ingredients.

Mexican food is built on fresh veggies, corn, beans, and other organic food staples. It wasn't until the United States began marketing fast food did our diets shift; hence, the high obesity rates in Mexico City.
