    Hey everyone!

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, feel free to move if so.

    I have a huge craving for some fajitas for my lunch and I know that the chicken, fajita spice, peppers, cucumber and fat free yoghurt will all be ok, but the wraps are always so many syns and I like to have at least 3!

    Anyone know of any particular brand or alternative which is better?

    Thanks! XxXxX

    None are particularly good I'm afraid. The lowest I've found are 8 syns, the Tesco ones
    There was once a recipe in the SW mag which makes wraps with eggs, a bit like thin omelettes. Eggs, milk, seasoning and herbs.
    Never tried it but it's worth a go!

    I was thinking about something like a thin omelette, but I was worried about it breaking when I roll up the fajita. Hummmm.

    I've been looking at the syns online and they say that Old El Paso's Soft Flour Tortillas are 7 syns each. and their corn tortillas are 6 syns each. They are the best I've found.

    I may just have to break the syn barrier. lol unless someone else can think of something. :D

    I think the Weight Watchers ones are 5 syns each, check it on the website but they were fine the last time I had them.

    Why not do EE and have the fajita filling with some spicy potato wedges in stead of the bread?

    If you really need the fajitas, use flexible syns and have them- this plan doesn't say 'no' to anything

    Don't go over your syns, try the egg ones, just don't make them too thin or thick. Experiment :)
    We have to adapt certain things!!

    The WW ones are only 5 syns each so you could have 3 and still be on plan. :D

    the nicest one's I use are any of the discovery range, either plain or garlic and coriander which are 5 1/2 syns each, they're notmally next to all of the old el paso items :)
