These are great. I make them all the time. I thought it might be strange cuz I add shredded cheese inside too even though the outside is all cheese.
I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who does this.
Great pic too!!

Thanks, it just wouldn't seem like a taco without the cheese but I didn't add nearly as much as usual. I do love cheese though!

Gina, your taco shell is the best I've seen! Is it made with cheddar?

It is, I used the shredded cheddar and just sprinkled it on a plate and spread it out but made sure that none of the plate showed through the cheese. Stuck it in my micro and set it for about 3 minutes or so, kept an eye on it. When it started to brown around the edges I took it out and used a metal pie server and went all the way arriving the bottom of the cheese and lifted it up so it wouldn't stick then put it back in the micro for at 1 minute increments until it was browned all the way. I took it our after every minute or two and used the pie server to loosen the cheese all over so it didn't stick to the plate. If it came apart I would just push the cheese back together so there were no holes in it.

I was really happy with it. It was quite a bit of work but I only could eat one. I used an 8" plate and filled it almost to the edge so it was a good sized shell, probably the same size as a regular shell.

Thank you so much for the step by step, Gina, I'm going to try one very soon. I've copied your instructions and the pic of the shell so I won't forget.

Quesadilla

Not the best picture but it sure tasted yummy!

Oat Fiber and Psyllium Husk tortilla filled with chili seasoned ground turkey and cheese. I added a bit of salsa and greek yogurt to top it off.

I'm on set today so I've only got my phone with me. I'll post the recipe when I get home. It's pretty much just oat fibre, psyllium husk, egg white, spices and this time I added a little flax.

Looking forward to the tortilla recipe.

I was doing background (extra) on Copper (a TV series)

This is the recipe I've been using for tortilla's.

1/2 tbsp Psyllium Husk
2 tbsp Oat Fiber 500
1/2 tsp Spices, Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
30 g Simply Egg Whites
1/4 cup Water - enough to make a runny batter.
10 g Whey Protein Concentrate, Unflavored - Progressive organics brand
Dash of salt
1/4 tbsp sweetener
1/4 tsp glucomannan

Mix dry ingredients, add eggs and water. Pour into greased pan and spread as you would a crepe. Cook until the top is completely dry then flip and cook the other side.

The picture I posted also had 1/2 tbsp flax meal and an extra 10g of egg whites.

Per Livestrong the original recipe based on the ingredients I'm using has the following stats, but I think there must be a mistake as the dietary fiber is higher than the totoal carbs?

Calories 67, total carb 8.58g?, dietary fiber 11.9g?, sugars 0.73, protein 11.95g

I actually modified my recipe from a protein pow pita recipe.

I was trying to make a thinner tortilla, but it still puffed more than I wanted because of the eggs. If you want it really thick like a pita add more egg whites.

Yaz - I just noticed your nutritional stats and I don't think they can be correct, you have less carbs listed than total fiber and that just can't be, I haven't figured them myself but thought I'd point it out.

Oops!! Sorry, Yaz, I went back and re-read your post and see that you questioned the counts as well. Forgive me!

Made something

Finally made something different. I know its old hat to others who have done this a while. Making the oppsie rolls. I tend to just eat meat salad and vegetables. But always restarting over and think if I am going to stick with it I am going to have to cook more things and try what others are doing that have been low carbing a while and sticking with it. I've attempted the oppsie rolls 2 times the first they were large and thick bland didn't care for them. This time they were flat liked them better. I decided to use them like someone else mentioned like for bacon lettuce tomato. I added cheese, green pepper onion just a little bit. They were ok better then the not eating which is what I've been doing for breakfast. Also made the low carb milk enjoyed that. I really want to get use to eating low carb. It took me 20 years to learn to cook regular food just not a natural cook hopefully won't take me that long cooking low carb.

I am a big fan of the 'oopsie' roll. It can be changed up in many ways.

My daughter has been low carbing and cut wheat out of her diet as well, which is pretty good considering she works at a pizza place. She has been eating salads with meats and cheeses but misses pizza so today she made herself a crustless pizza and took a pic for me to see. It looked really good, and she suggested that I post her pic on this forum, so here it is.

She put sauce on the bottom then loaded it up with grilled mushroom, green pepper, onion, black olives, tomato, and broccoli.
