    Yes, saw that after I posted. I saw some nice Mission Tortilla chips
    tonight in the local small supermarket. Was tempted to get some, they
    had a number of different flavours. I have stopped buying taco shells as
    they break too easily. If we have tacos, I make the spiced meats, add
    the taco toppings and put it on corn chips a la nachos. I wouldn't mind
    trying the Mission chips with that, even though I don't have many at a
    sitting.

    I eat tacos over a plate and use a spoon to get the broken parts. I eat
    toast pizza with a steak knife and fork which pretty much proves I'm
    cultured.

    Here on the Texas-Mexican border the only place to get crispy taco
    shells is in the supermarket or at Taco Bell. The locals make
    everything into a taco and use soft tortillas, mostly flour, though some
    fillings go better with corn.

    On rare occasions I want a hard shell taco so I spray the Mission Carb
    Balance ones with olive oil from a Misto and hang them over the oven
    rack to toast them.

    once a year or so I have a splurge day where I donít care about spikes..well
    three....xmas and birthday and one free day..

    anyhoo it was last week and a had seasoned beef and onion and tomato and
    cheese and salsa over mission tortilla chips..was soooo good..lol

    if missions chips are the same there as here they are very good..they have
    that stone ground taste.

    I like the low carb tortillas but as I say they tend to spike me now sadly..

    was using them for wraps and a anytime a thing called for bread like hot
    dogs etc...

    sad..

    Janet here in AZ our tacos are crispy....I think it is Sonoran influence. In
    the old days, when I was a youngster the Mexican Moms, who invited us to
    their house, would pat a hamburger patty on half of the corn tortilla put it
    in hot oil, fold it in half after the shell softens , then fry it until it
    is crispy. Now days everybody uses already made shells. When I was in Jr
    High , I was taught to make tacos the old way....a bit messy but very
    tasty...even cold in the mornings for breakfast...LOL!

    The only problem I have with Mission Carb Balance is they stick to one
    another. I wrote to the company with the complaint and received an answer ,
    stating they were aware of the problem and working on fixing them...has that
    problem been fixed yet?

    When I was a kid I mostly only knew of the crisp ones. Until Taco Time
    opened. It's a local chain. Good, fresh food, made in house. They give
    you a choice of crisp or soft. But unlike a street taco, they do not use
    two tortillas for the soft ones. And it's IMO Americanized.

    If you go to a chain restaurant you are most likely to get the crisp ones.
    There is one restaurant here called Yucatan that serves crisp ones that are
    not made using the standard pre-made shells. They fry their own. I love
    them. Angela hates them. They're very greasy so not something I get often.
    We used to have a fast food chain called Taco John's that did theirs the
    same way. I think they are still in existance. Just not in this area.

    But probably my favorite taco ever would be the one from Jack In The Box. I
    haven't had one of those in many years. You wouldn't want to eat it if you
    wanted something that actually tasted like a taco. Ha! They come prefilled
    with some kind of beef that is mixed with something...oats? And slices of
    cheese food. Then they deep fry them. There is something just really
    addictive about those things and they ought to be illegal.

    We had that problem with some of the gluten free ones. So we had to quit
    buying them.

    What I had for dinner tonight was from La Tortilla Factory. They are a mix
    of yellow corn and wheat. I had three and some fat free refried beans.
    Also raw baby carrots. BG was 100 before I ate and 122 at two hours later.
    Some here would not like those numbers but they work for me.

    Keep them in the fridge. They don't seem to stick when cold.
