I set about making these chicken fajita triangles for my family, as I wanted something unhealthy and substantially different to the norm to serve up for dinner. If you’re in a hurry to get started then scroll down near the end of this recipe for my printable chicken fajita triangles recipe card.

I’m a real fan of cooking. I love to make items from scratch and most importantly I love to experiment from time to time. Recently I had a bout of illness and once recovered I fancied some really good junk food. These really hit the spot!

How to fold a tortilla wrap into a triangle:

Take the tortilla wraps and slice them in half. I used a pizza cutter for ease.

Mix together 1tbsp of flour and a little water until you make a thick paste.

You’ve created a tortilla pocket. Like a samosa but with tortillas instead of pastry.

Now fill the pocket 2/3 full with mixture. Rub the flour paste around the edge and press together to form a seal.

You can then fry the chicken fajita triangles in hot vegetable oil. I found that they only took around 20-25 seconds on each side.

I flipped them over using a metal spatula. Make sure it isn’t damp when you use it or you will almost burn your house down! Speaking from experience there!

Ta-dah! Finished result. One of my chicken fajita triangles. Absolutely delicious, super naughty and pretty frugal too!

These went down a storm although you’ll have to wait a few minutes for them to cool down and probably want to drain them on a piece of kitchen towel first!

If you fancy it and like to save money, you can make your own tortillas.

Want to make chicken fajita triangles in the air fryer?

I would suggest cooking them on 180C for around 4 minutes. You’re just wanting to crisp up the wraps, as the filling was already cooked.

Check once during the cooking time and flip over if you need to just to ensure even cooking, although my air fryer doesn’t require this!
