How to make fajitas, including tortillas and salsa, from raw ingredients





800g plain flour
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
350ml boiling water

Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Rub in butter to resemble texture of polenta. Add water slowly, mixing with your hands to make a soft dough. You may not need all the water.

Knead a few minutes on floured surface until smooth and elastic. Lubricate top with oil, put back in bowl and let rest, covered for 10 minutes.

Divide into small balls the size of golf balls and proceed to roll out into size and thickness you prefer.

Cook in dry heavy frying pan until top is slightly bubbly then turning on opposite side for a minute or two. Keep stacked and warm inside a clean tea towel

Combine chopped chillies, some of a can of tomatoes, spring onions, crushed garlic, salt, pepper
