Gluten Free Fajitas

Fajitas are tasty and most of the ingredients tend to be naturally gluten free so what a perfect meal for celiacs. Most people (in the UK at least) use wheat tortillas to eat with their fajitas but if you substitute these for corn tortillas and double check that all of the ingredients you are using are gluten free, you’ve got yourself a delicious, filling meal!

Finding corn tortillas in the US is simple. They are everywhere and they are super cheap. Finding them in the UK on the other hand is not so simple. If you look at ‘corn tortillas’ you find in our supermarkets the first or second ingredient is wheat flour! Crazy, right? The only real corn tortillas I’ve managed to find in the Glasgow area were at Lupe Pintos on Great Western Road in the West End, a store which sells various American, Mexican and Spanish products. They aren’t cheap at around £2.50 for 12 but so far I’ve found nowhere else to buy them! If you use tortillas, let me know where you buy them please…

    I’m a Mexican living in Glasgow and I get my corn tortillas from http://www.mexgrocer.co.uk
    I had a hard time finding them but I finally did. You can also buy the masa to make your own tortillas (the hardest part is to make them thin but the rest is quite simple, you just mix the corn meal with water).
    I also read your tip about not over stuffing tortillas so they don’t break. They break more easily when they are not properly warmed. The best way is to use a saute pan and heat them over low – medium heat; they will change its color a bit and releasing a subtle aroma when they are cooked (just like a cake starts smelling when its cooked). Hope this helps.
