Note 1 – To get the desired result on your tortilla, be sure that you get psyllium that’s milled, but not over-milled, nor the super-powdery type. It should just be “just right”, meaning on the medium side not too coarse and not too fine.
Note 2 – Coconut milk can also be replaced by almond milk, whichever you prefer, the outcome will still be great.
Note 3 – You can choose from a variety of meat, such as beef (my choice), chicken or pork. You can try veggies, too.
Note 4 – For those who haven’t heard it before, Herbamere is some kind of substitute to salt, something unique as it is blended with herbs and spices that will work wonders on your dishes.
