A Mexican Classic: Fajitas!

I've not eaten fajitas in a long time as the tortillas they sell in the shops may read 'corn tortillas' but are bulked out with wheat flour. But my girlfriend managed to source these fantastic gluten free tortillas at And what a find they were! As they are pure corn tortillas and not bulked out they taste really authentic. Having been to Mexico, they really brought back memories of the tacos we used to get from street vendors in Puerto Escondido! They do come in batches of 30 but are great value and freezable.

We used a BBC Good Food recipe for steak fajitas which was very tasty. The recipe uses rump steak, which was full of flavour and great value. If you like it spicy just up the pinch of cayenne pepper. We served them with a tomato salsa, guacamole and sour cream. An awesome dinner which took no time at all to make!

  1. Thanks for this - I shall look into ordering some of these corn tortillas. it's so annoying that the ones they sell in supermarkets are full of wheat... I made a Mexican chicken thing at the weekend but used standy-up tacos (I think they were Old El Paso - some very mainstream brand from Tesco) because they are all corn and so GF - they went down very well with guacamole, salsa, sour cream, Jalapenos etc.
