The fine folks at Folios were kind enough to send me a variety of their cheese wraps and at first, honestly, I wasn’t so into them, but I kept them in the fridge for a bit but didn’t post a review for a while. I love lettuce, cabbage and Cut Da Carb wraps typically for keto “sandwiches” and keto tacos, but the raw cheese discs just weren’t doing it for me. Until, I saw one of my favorite Keto TikTok-ers, Erica of TikTokKeto, crisping them up in the microwave and using them as a lactose free, gluten free hard shell to fill with your favorite keto-friendly fillings. I know this is not anything new, however I just hadn’t jumped on that bandwagon. Yet. Now I’m obsessed.
Available in Parmesan, Cheddar and Jarlsberg (my personal favorite), Folios are lightly baked sheets of natural cheese that can be used straight out of the fridge as a wrap or as a large, thin slice inside a quesadilla. However I think the true magic of Folios Cheese Wraps for those of us on keto, is that you can pop them in the microwave for two minutes, and they melt into a thin, crispy “tortilla” that can be molded into a taco shell shape or into a bowl.
To mold them, after you microwave them for two minutes (on top of a piece of parchment that is included in the package), you have to immediately put it on a bowl or around a rolling pin for two minutes to cool and settle into the shape. After two minutes, you’re ready to fill it to your heart’s desires!
I whipped up a quick lunch with them earlier this week using some grilled chicken tenderloins that I seasoned with cumin and sugar-free taco seasoning. I made a shell out of the Jarlsberg Folio Cheese Wrap and topped it with avocado, lettuce, sour cream and some hot sauce. It was so delicious and even more delicious that a traditional taco shell!
Next, I’m going to cut the cheddar folios into triangles and use them as my base for nachos — no shredded cheese topping needed! With only 1g of net carbs per wrap, these are a keto must-have for sure.
