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.
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…
