How to wrap a fajita

Fajitas form a versatile meal, with a base of chicken, beef, vegetables, beans or almost any other warm food you like. The accompanying condiments, cheese and vegetables turn the dish into something more than a basic bread and protein meal.

The different parts of fajitas are normally served separately, allowing you to form your own fajita wraps. Wrapping fajitas takes little time to learn. Practice while eating a fajita meal or use some tortillas and your choice of fillings at home.

Lay a warmed tortilla flat on your plate.

Add the desired amounts of the various fillings in a row down the middle of the tortilla. It is better to under-stuff than over-stuff to start with, as this makes the wrap easier to make. Aim for a layer no more than 7.5 cm (3 inches) wide and less than 2.5 cm (1 inch) high. Leave a 5 to 7.5 cm (2 to 3 inch) space at the bottom.

Fold the left side of the tortilla over the filling.

Fold the bottom part of the tortilla bread up over the filling.

Fold the right side of the tortilla over the filling.

Flatten the fajita slightly with your fingers.

Turn the fajita over and it is ready to eat.
