Gluten free fajita

Ok on a whim I decided tonight to make tortillas. Have never made them before even with wheat flour but figured it would be fun.
I googled for recipes and got my first hurdle. Corn tortillas aren't just made of corn flour - as you would imagine. No they are made of a special flour masa harina. Well I dont have that in my cupboard and you can only get from specialist stores. So will add to my shopping list for a later date. But that left me with a dilemma. Give up on my whim or be creative. So I was creative. I decided to find a recipe for gluten free flour tortillas but to put some corn/maize flour in it to flavour it a bit more!!
So my finished recipe was
1 1/2 cup dove gluten free flour
1/2 cup corn/maize flour
1 1/2 tea spoon xantam gum
1 1/2 tea spoon sugar
2/3 tea spoon salt
1 cup warm water.

I mixed the dry ingredients them added the water and made into a dough. I then took ping pong ball sized balls. Rolled them put between two sheets of cling film. Then heated a frying plan and cooked them until was puffing and starting to get brown spots on each side.

They were yummy. I made a steak fajita mix and served with grated cheese lettuce and salsa.

Both little p's loved it. Success.

However will need some practice to make them more circular!!!
