    1. Hey Karen,
      The tortillas we used in this recipe are corn tortillas. They aren’t low carb. They’re actually listed under “toppings” in this recipe. Sorry for any confusion. You could do these with our homemade cheese tortillas if you are looking for low carb. Here is that recipe: Gluten Free Cheddar Cheese Taco Shells
