I love tortillas, in fact, I like them better and eat them more often than I do sliced bread.
Not just a vessel for deliciously serving up Mexican delights, tortillas are versatile. You can use them to create a great deli sandwich wrap; cut them into quarters or slices and fry them to enjoy as chips or as a topping on soups and salads; they make a great impromptu pizza crust; bake them into a cup or bowl shape to create an edible vessel for dips, salad or fruit; use them as an alternative to noodles for casseroles - think lasagna. Bonus #1, they can be served up savory or sweet! Bonus #2, they freeze well, better than sliced bread in fact.
Today I'm reviewing Pueblo Lindo Flour Tortillas. Pueblo Lindo is an Aldi brand, featuring a full line of authentic Hispanic foods to include tamales, beans, peppers, tortillas, cheeses, frozen treats and more.
I sampled the tortillas straight out of the bag, as a sandwich wrap, with tacos, and I fried some up in strips to enjoy as a crunchy topper for soup & salad. I enjoyed the tortillas in every way. Straight out of the bag they were soft and pliable, with the neutral flavor that is typical of a flour tortilla. That's the beauty of flour tortillas, they provide a nice texture element in celebrating all the flavors you put in them, the tacos I prepared were awesome, with the tortillas nicely delivering all that great taco flavor! Fried up into strips and dressing them simply with a light dusting of sea salt, they also provided a nice crunch with a cream of potato soup and a side salad.
Costing me $1.92 for a 20 count bag of fajita sized tortillas, I'm giving Pueblo Lindo Flour Tortillas 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. They're tasty, reasonably priced, every bit as good as a name brand tortilla and definitely worthy of a repeat buy. Compare the price to brand name Mission Fajita Super Soft Flour Tortillas at $3.49 for a 20 count bag at the mainstream grocery store. That's a savings of $1.57 for something I don't think anybody could tell the difference of - Pueblo Lind vs. Mission - in a blind taste test. This tortilla comparison is yet another example of why shopping at Aldi rather than the mainstream grocery store is a prudent move that will save you A LOT of money.
