I just realized today how much I miss fajitas! mmmmmmm....fajitas.

Anyone know of some good torilla shells? I tried one brand that was basically like eating plastic, then I realized that I was supposed to heat them up. Then it was like eating warm plastic!!!

Help! I really want some fajitas ;)

I have used Mission brand corn tortilla--spray with oil and heat in oven.

Even better however is if you can make your own shells. Get some MaSeCa brand Masa Harina (corn flour) and follow the directions on the bag. It's nothing more than mixing the masa with water to make a dough. It's easier if you have a tortilla press but it you don't you can press the dough between two plates with wax paper on them. Homemade corn tortillas are nothign like the store bought and are much more similar to flour tortillas.

Could not have said it better myself!

You can also lightly brush them with oil and bake until crispy in the oven for corn chips which also has many uses.

Any idea where you can buy the Masa Harina? or a tortilla shell press?

Wal-Mart sells Masa Harina in the Latin food section locally, but we have a large Latin population. If you have a Latin grocer, they will most likely sell a press.

You've got me hankering for fahitas now! (And huevos ranchero...) I'm going to have to do a corn challenge this weekend! :D Wish me luck!

I"m in Canada. Not sure if I can get any of that here! I'll definitely try to make my own. I now have a weekend project! Thanks!

I have seen MaSeCa in most regular grocery stores--check the international sections if they have one. Be careful about which brand you buy--the first brand I tried had wheat cc in it due to being processed with wheat flour. I noticed only after it made me sick and after writing to the company that the bag had a warning that said "May contain wheat". The MaSeCa brand is safe and has not given me any symtpoms.

For the press I had to order one from the big A website. I looked all over for one locally but could not find one anywhere. If you live in an area with a big Hispanic population you may have more luck.

I got my press in the supermarket in a neighborhood with a high hispanic population. Actually, I have learned to love this store....all kinds of goodies. When you master tortillas, move on to arepas!

    • Squirmingitch brought up the macaroon idea, I find Zsweet, and Swerve Sugar Free sweeteners do not throw me out of keto and I use them to make my "treats" You might sub it in these if your like that idea. I personally just use coconut and almond meal in my baked goods with high fat nuts like walnuts and pecans (Walnuts and pecans have so much oil in them you can butter then in a blender or food processes into a pour able sauce that can be used as a dressing or mixed with eggs and coconut flour into a dough)

      Also brought up batch beans....bad idea for keto, but to integrate a keto version, try cooking a roast in a crock pot, or a whole bunch of chicken breast. You can eat on it for a week just serve it over greens. Or Miracle Rice (zero carb rice) Batch cooking will become a life saver. (works with some foods) and meal preps give you time to just grab a pre fixed meal out of the fridge and go if you need to do something later in the day. First year I was gluten free I did this daily for myself before meat became a issue (I look forward to doing it again).
        CB brings up the issue of selenium and melotonin. YES this is a huge thing and completely evaded my thoughts. I consume massive amounts of seeds, like pumpkin, sancha inchi, hemp all high in these in addition to flax and chia. I tend to rotate my seeds to prevent intolerance issues and only the roasted ones. Look up GERBS allergen friendly foods for pumpkin, hemp, flax, and chia.  I suggest the ground flax under meals as the seeds I notice have issues, I personally always have to cook my chia, and flax seeds into egg dishes or I can not eat them. If you blend them in with the eggs  1-2tbsp seed meal to 1 1/2 cups eggs -1/2 cup almond milk 2tbsp coconut flour and some almond butter and stevia to taste let it set up 5-10mins then blend again you have a batter for pancakes/waffles/doughnuts/breading batter. >.> something like this I whim it as a chef.

      I was thinking of another think I like to snack on. Rythem Super foods roasted kale and the kale chips in moderation. I also crush the kale chips up and sprinkle over eggs as a condiment, Adds plenty of vitamins and the ranch flavor for this is amazing.




       
    • No, not really. I had done my homework, so I reduced all grains substancially to give my guts a chance to heal. I increased all vegetables substancially and am basically going high fat, low carb.  That is why I had a few hicups along the way, my diet was too high in FODMAPs (nuts, fruit, avocados) but I made the necessary adjustments.  I think my hairloss is finally slowing down, but my skin is getting worse, pimply on chest and neck.
    • You might want to see about getting the blood test done again and getting a full celiac panel. You have to be consuming gluten daily for 12 weeks before the test. At least half a slice of bread a day. And keep eating gluten til you get the endoscope. The endoscope with biopsy is the golden standard as some people do not show up on the blood test.

      You mentioned itchiness and redness, look up DH and tell me if it looks like. If you have DH then you HAVE celiac. They test it by taking a skin biopsy from a clear spot next to one of the lesions and testing it.

      I have seen some others with this disease distend where they look pregnant when they get glutened. I have some distention but never that bad, just a obvious bump that pressing out. 
    • Juca hun.....you just responded and tried talking to a person that has been gone for 12 years....please check the date
    • Welcome. You do sound like you could be one of us.  You should get retested for celiac. Just because tests were negative a couple years ago doesn't mean they will be now.  Any doctor can run the panel but if you can see a GI doctor that  is familiar with celiac that might be best. Do not stop eating gluten until your celiac related testing is finished.
