    Look for smaller ones if possible. There are some about 6 inches in diameter as opposed to the normal sized ones. I think I've had some in the past for about 7.5 syns but can't remember where from.

    Like you, I love them but sadly don't eat them much as I can't stop at one, or two or even three for that matter!!!

    No idea how to work out Syns but WW do Tortilla wraps, theyre lower in points than Tescos so presumably lower in cals etc... maybe lower in Syns?

    It's due to the low fibre content. HEX B choices need to be high in fibre.

    Also, they are a lot of cals too so would work out too much. Most HEX B choices work out at 6ish syns, these would be too much. :)

    i know its not the same but have you thought of using eggs, like a pancake and use that to wrap round things, you need to let them cool abit.

    A wholemeal pitta is 7.5 syns.

    8.5 for a Discovery Foods tortilla.

    Old el paso corn tortillas are 6 each.

    Still trying to find a wholemeal tortilla value...

    This is another one that you could maybe use the egg rolls out of the recepie to fill with things instead of the tortilla.

    Crab egg rolls.
    serves 2, 4pts per serving or core, takes 15 mins

    Ingredients:
    60g thin rice noodles
    2 med eggs, plus 2 whites
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    4 spring onions, chopped
    juice 1/2 lime
    3tbsp coriander, chopped
    1x 170g tin white meat crab in brine, drained
    low fat cooking spray
    Method:
    1. Pour boiling water over the noodles to cover and leave to stand for 5 mins until softened. Meanwhile, beat the eggs and egg whites with a little seasoning then stir in the spring onions. Drain the noodles, rinse in cold water and mix with the lime juice, coriander and crabmeat. Season the mixture with freshly ground balck pepper.
    2. Spray a small non stick frying pan with low fat cooking spray. Pour in a quarter of the egg mix, swirl around the pan and cook over a med to high heat for 1 min on first side. Flip over and cook for a further 30 secs. As each egg wrap is cooked, add a quarter of the crab noodle mix and roll up, then repeat to make a total of four rolls.
    serve at room temp or wrap up for lunchbox.

    There's a recipe in one of the old SW magazines - I think it's called burrito bowls. They use a corn tortilla in a bowl, filled with chili or taco mixture or something. Can't remember now. But I do remember it using a corn tortilla. I guess as it's part corn meal, thus less flour, it's lower in syns. Though maybe check out the wholemeal ones as well, as mentioned above?

    I have just posted a recipe for chinese pancakes in the recipe section, that may be a substitute for tortillas. They work out at 2.5 syns each (plus 1 hexa) and can be filled, and eaten hot or cold
