That was a really great post thanks. I may try this with the new gluten free flour that you can sub one for one with regular flour as I've been looking for something to use with fajitas. Great instructions!

Yes, they sure can. Just toss in the toaster/microwave/oven as usual frozen breads :) Enjoy!
