Gluten Free Fajitas

The best gluten free fajitas recipe using homemade gluten free tortillas, corn or store-bought.


  • 1/2 pound stir fry meat already cut into strips (chicken or beef)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 large onion
  • 2 Tablespoons oil for frying (I used extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 Tablespoon gluten free white vinegar (I used Heinz) (Use apple cider or rice vinegar if corn-free.)
  • 2 Tablespoons gluten free chilpotle sauce or hot sauce (I used Picante Bufalo Salsa Chilpotle* which is not sugar free.)
  • 1 Tablespoon Worchestershire (I used Lea & Perrins - contains corn)
  • 1 - 2 small pinches of stevia (to taste) (I like 2!)
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • a few pinches of tapioca flour or corn starch for thickening the sauce (optional)
  • shredded cheese (optional)
  • Homemade Gluten Free Tortillas (or Rudi's brand)


  1. Seed and thinly slice bell peppers.
  2. Peel, devein and thinly slice onion.
  3. Preheat frying pan and cook the vegetables on medium-high heat until onion is golden brown and then lower heat to sauté vegetables until onion is translucent.
  4. While the vegetables are sautéing, preheat another pre-oiled frying pan.
  5. Brown the meat on medium high.
  6. Add vegetables to meat, add liquid ingredients, and stir.
  7. If using a thickener, remove meat and vegetables to the sides of the pan and add the flour and whisk any lumps out; or mix the flour with a bit of cold water before hand and pour in and stir. Then mix everything all together.
  8. Arrange on a platter with a side of warm tortillas, shredded cheese (if using), for everyone to assemble their own fajitas. (I serve this with a side salad and/or beans.)
