Gluten and dairy free fajitas (and win a month’s supply!)

This evening, I’ve got a really exciting new recipe to share- and a giveaway! I’ve finally got my hands on an Old El Paso’s Gluten Free Fajita kit! After looking on Ocado, Waitrose and Sainsburys (where it was all sold out), I finally managed to track it down in Tesco’s today. And what better way to celebrate being snowed-in than with a huge plate of fajitas. Stay tuned to the end of the post to see how you can win your own month’s supply of gluten-free fajitas!


So what do you get in the kit?


8 Gluten Free Tortillas (these are bigger than the corn ones you can get in Sainsbury’s which is amazing as you feel as if it can properly hold a filling!)

-1 gluten-free (and dairy-free) salsa

-1 gluten-free (and dairy-free) smoky BBQ mild.

The Recipe

As I’m not much of a pepper girl, I decided to try my fajitas with courgettes, onions and avocado instead. I used stir-fry turkey strips and 1/2 of the gluten-free spice mix. Why only half? Well, a few of my fellow bloggers had told me the kit was actually quite spicy (despite its mild label) so using 1/2 gave it the perfect kick without me needing to rush for a glass of water!

Next time, I’m planning on experimenting with using the whole of the mix but mixing with some soy yoghurt instead. I served my fajitas with some homemade sweet potato wedges.

The kit really is incredibly easy to use; simply stir-fry the turkey and veg for five minutes or so; pop the wraps in the microwave for 15 seconds and then bring it all together for the perfect dinner; with leftovers to spare the next day.


Whilst we’re on the subjects of wraps- I really enjoyed these! The photo makes them look a little smaller than they actually are: they’re definitely bigger than the corn taco wraps (that you can currently buy in Sainsbury’s) and they’re also really sturdy too- they held plenty of filling without falling apart. The texture of them was incredibly like regular flour tortillas too. These are a mix of quinoa, corn and tapioca flour-a welcome change from the usual rice flours. Unlike many gluten-free bread alternatives, they don’t use egg either.

I really enjoyed making these fajitas. Personally, I could only manage two (with a side dish of wedges) so I have saved plenty for tomorrows lunch too. The kit is definitely big enough for dinner for four.

Pin the recipe…

    I’m really excited about these, we’ve eaten these for a while now but always had to source a gluten free tortilla for Beth, I’ve also made my own (which personally I love the taste of) but to a 13yr old it’s a bit crappy being obviously different so this new kit will mean yet another family favourite meal we can all enjoy and no one needs to feel excluded or different…well done Old El Paso.

    Courgettes, onion and avocado are three of my favourite things! It’s such a great idea to swap peppers for courgettes. A few of my friends can’t go near peppers (it’s a digestion thing I think) so I’ve never considered making fajitas for them, but with your recipe, it would be perfect!! Pinning it now so I don’t forget 🙂 xx

    The kit is so tasty isn’t it! Love the idea of experimenting with different veg! We tried it with the traditional peppers and onions and it was really good but definitely like the tip about not using all of the sachet!!

    I am so excited about these because my son struggles with Celiac so much. He says nothing tastes as good. These look so good and I am hopeful that we would all enjoy them and help my son a little more as he continues on his celiac journey.

    These look amazing. I’d live the chance to try some. I’ve only got little local stores near me and they have a very limited range so not been able to find these. I hope they introduce a pack of the tortillas on their own too.

    Really excited to win a box as these look really promising. My family love fajitas but since my Dad was diagnosed as a coeliac we’ve attempted a few brands of the wraps and they’re not that great at all. Old el paso is such a good make too so don’t feel we’re missing out at all with this kit. Not all supermarkets do the corn wraps either or when they do they’re missed with gluten which is frustrating. These look really tasty too!

    I am so excited as i do miss having a boxed set rather than having to get all of the gluten free bits separate (if the store has them). Before diagnosis all those years ago it used to be one of our favourite meals so cant wait to introduce it back into our meal options!
