Chicken Fajitas with gluten free Tortillas 😋



Yuca and salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

  • Cut off the outer skin of the yuca with a large knife.

  • Then chop the yuca into 2-inch chucks and place them into a large pot of water. Boil approximately 20-30 minutes or until fork tender.

  • Drain the yuca.

  • While still hot, puree the yuca with the oil and salt in a food processor (or blender).

  • Scoop out the dough and place it on parchment paper. Dough will be very sticky. Refrigerate 20 minutes or until cool to reduce stickiness.

  • Cut out 9 pieces of 6 x 6 parchment paper. Divide dough into 8 parts. Place each dough ball onto a piece of parchment paper. One paper should be left over to place on top of the tortilla that is being pressed.

  • Using a tortilla press or your hand, press out 8 tortillas. Remove the top parchment paper, but keep the bottom parchment paper on. Place tortilla with parchment paper onto a large baking sheet. Use the top parchment paper for the next tortilla.

  • Continue to press out the remaining tortillas. Place as many as you can on the baking sheet.

  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until very lightly browned.

  • Remove from oven. Remove tortillas keeping parchment paper on tortillas to prevent them from sticking together.

  • Cook the remaining batch.

  • Store in a container or large baggie with parchment paper in between each tortilla. Can be refrigerated for 3-4 days or frozen for 1 month.
