Fajita wraps are also known as tortilla wraps and are essential for a Mexican night, but how many syns does this food have when added to your fajita chicken?
The average tortilla wraps have around 8.5 syns per wrap, making them very high in syns since you need to consider the fajita filling too, just two would use up your syn allowance for the whole day.
Down below in our guide, we will discuss how many fajitas wraps you can have in the slimming world, the syn values of tortillas and fajitas as well as some other low syn alternatives for your Mexican meal.
How Many Fajita Wraps Can You Have On Slimming World?
Since the average tortilla wrap has 8.5 syns, you could enjoy up to two of them before going over your daily syn allowance by one syn.
For a better fajita-style wrap you could use mini tortillas which have 4 syns per wrap meaning you could have 3.5 before using your allowance, most fajita kits typically use slightly smaller sized wraps.
Syn Values Of Tortillas (Fajita Wraps)
If you've decided to use tortilla wraps as your fajita wraps we've listed some different syn values of these wraps below according to the brand that you choose.
Are There Any Low Syn Alternatives To Fajita Wraps?
Fajitas are typically made with tortilla flour wraps, but there is no reason as to why you can't save some syns by trying out some of these alternatives as wraps below.
Corn wraps - Corn wraps are much lower in calories than flour tortillas and essentially act the same when making fajitas.
Tacos - Tacos only have 3 syns per shell, so are much more syn friendly, there are no rules as to why you can't put your fajita mix in tacos!
Lettuce - Lettuce boats can also hold your fajita mix and eliminate the syns and carbs from your fajitas.
Sweet potato wraps - You can now find wraps made out of sweet potato rather than flour, these are lower in calories but can still act as a fajita wrap.
To conclude, fajita wraps are also known as tortilla wraps and cost you around 8 syns a wrap or 4 syns if you choose mini tortillas, this can add a lot of syns to your fajitas once you've added the mix and toppings such as cheese or sour cream.
To save syns we suggest switching to lighter wraps such as weight watchers or choosing corn tortillas which have reduced calories.
