  3. Lay a flour tortilla on a flat surface. Top with half of the fajita veggies, ½ sliced avocado, ¼ cup beans, 2 tablespoons sour-cream, 1 tablespoon salsa, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Fold in the sides of the tortilla over the filling and roll up to completely enclose. Wrap in foil and cut in half. Serve warm. Enjoy!

    For people scared of rice, substitute! Or just leave it out altogether! You can add fresh veggies like lettuce, spinach, tomato, sprouts~

    Also, if you’re looking for something to replace sour cream, try a plain yogurt that has a lot of tartness, like a good greek yogurt, or just one that doesn’t have too much sugar in it.

    First, I’d like to start by saying I’m really enjoying your blog, but have noticed a common theme that I feel needs to be addressed. This is not Mexican food, this is what is commonly referred to Tex-Mex, or Americanized Mexican food. Fajitas are not eaten in Mexico, it’s a Texan creation. I know this because: 1.I’m from Texas and 2.My family is from Mexico 3. I was born and raised in a city that borders Mexico. Trips were almost as frequent as trips to the grocery store.
    Anyway, thet are both amazing, flavorful cuisines, but they are very different. I just want readers to understand that what they are eating will not closely resemble authentic Mexican cooking.
    Also, a good majority of what we make is going to include some sort of (re)frying. If you’re having rice(specifically the orange looking one) with your meal you’re getting a lot of sodium and a lot of oil.

    This is something I would never make with rice because it is way too high in carbs. If you don’t own a car and walk everywhere, might be a different story. But since diabetes is beginning to take over ALL of the world, rice wold be a good thing to start cutting back on in my opinion.
