i had these last week......they were OK....tortillas were a bit small for my liking, but others may well like them.

Much better if you heat the tortillas in a frying pan ......

burn the onions and peppers - they'll taste better ( trust me ) and if you get really into mexican...go buy an iron griddle !

Thanks. My wife loves these.

I love chargrilled veg with these, but I've never used a pan on the tortillas - sounds like a great tip!:idea:

Haha, funnily enough I just finished this kit about 5 mins ago, had it for my tea. Also reduced to £1 are the nacho kits with salsa and nachos. They taste awesome!

These are OK
Do the job fine
HOT

yeah, it is......most people microwave them.....they don't have microwaves in mexico....

They are simply not as good as Old el Paso. Good price, but not as nice.

They're nowhere near as good as the leading brand :x

Are there any el paso ones which aren't barbeque flavour? I love the one's from M&S but quite expensive.

I have had these twice now and regularly have old el paso and discovery and i find them all to be very good, minor differences but no real preference so for a £1 they are a snip

Burrito and Enchilada kits also included in the deal.

This man knows his fajitas.:thumbsup:

Love these! Prefer them to El Passo.

Thought I'd add a few fajita making tips myself.

1) Sometimes these basic packet seasonings are not that great in terms of spice.

2) I use Schwartz Cajun Chicken spice mix - nice!

3) Marinade the chicken over night in the fridge with oil and the spice mix.

4) Chargrill the chicken on a griddle - or on a very hot frying pan with corn oil.

5) Wok fry the veg in a searing hot wok and add some spice to it as well.

6) Use fresh soured cream and buy some hot salsa tortilla dip instead of the more expensive fajita one.

7) Use kitchen roll for yer chin, you can get in a right mess eating these!

For any leftovers, keep in fridge over night, then add salsa and Monterrey jack or similar cheese - wrap up and sprinkle more cheese on top and stick in the oven for 20 mins - enchiladas!

Well my wife is Mexican and she likes some of these kits but havent tried this one will give it ago for a £1 and see what happens. Your right heat the Tortilla's up in the frying pan, taste alot better this way, you wouldnt catch a Mexican using the microwave to do this. And yes they do have Microwaves in Mexico haha.
Cheers for the heads up will stock up and get the wifes verdict!

Great tips there, thanks! We always have soured cream with them, they just wouldn't taste right without it I will try the seasoning tips next time we have fajitas :thumbsup:

So when you heat them on a frying pan - any oil? Just one at a time?

one at a time, no oil.....when it "inflates" , its done. if you the gods honest truth....i don't normally bother with the pan, i just stick them on the hob for a few seconds a side, gives them a nice burnt taste........thats my personall preference, im not suggesting for a second you should try it.....frying pan is the answer....once youve tried it, you'll never go back to the whole 5 tortillas with 4 sheets of kitchen paper inbeween them !!!!

Soured cream vs creme fraiche........personally, i wouldnt wok the veg......but everyones different, i like mine crunchy - but i use a very heavy iron griddle, that takes 15 mins to heat up on full power !!!!!

people use many different things, lettuce, toms, cheese, jal peppers, re-fried beans.....the list is ENDLESS>

There's also the beef/chicken thing.....i like both....but if your doing beef...buy a decent cut of steak, fry it SEPERATLY, and slice thinly....this'll stop it from being over cooked, and tough as old boots.


I love cooking, anyone looking for information on cooking vermin, im your man, Rats, cockroach, birds.....amazing what you can learn in thailand !!!

Rep for 'finger labour'

The Old El Passo ones are best but it's good for the price. Shall be picking some up at the weekend.

Nice offer. Rated hot.

The El Paso miss pricing offer was hotter buy 1 and it free with another one.

Voted HOT!

I've started making my own blend of spice seasoning up but for a quid each, it's worth buying a few of these if they've got a decent shelf life as the sum of the parts is worth more than that!

My tip is to heat the flour tortilla in a dry pan first (or heavy cast iron skillet if you're doing a load in quick succession) and then fill and built the wrap before returning it into another pan with a little hot corn oil or olive oil to seal and crisp the wrap nicely. It's not so good with fajitas as the filling often spills out in the pan, but it can be done with burritos and enchiladas.

You could even use the kits to make fajita-filled quesedillas!

creme fraiche for me with salsa, guacamole lettuce, cheese and jalapenos, bon appetite!

Had these last week.

Yes, I'll admit Old El Paso seasoning is the best but they've recently soared in price from 54p to 75p.
If we all make a point of not buying them maybe OEP will take the hint.

Also, if we're talking about the tortillas themselves, Lidl do the best, biggest & non-splitting(I hate when they do that!) Go on give them a try.

A student lifesaver!

I forgot to mention, I hate the Old El Paso stuff - it tastes too much like a barbeque marinade.

was just about to mention the lidl/aldi tortillas - both 12 inches, either plain, or mild garlic+herb.....they cook well, and don't break up.


Even great for an alternative to bread - i make lunch with them, just ham and cheese with mayo....or even egg mayo !
