Sweet Potato Fajitas

April McIver


A friend mentioned he’d made sweet potato fajitas, and it sounded so good I had to give them a go. I love the combination of sweet, savory and spicy flavors!

For the fajita seasoning, I'll post the recipe separately or you can use packaged.

How to Make Sweet Potato Fajitas


  • 1Toss sweet potato cubes with 1 tbsp olive oil and 2 tsp fajita seasoning to coat. Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
  • 2Meanwhile, cut your bell pepper and onion, and if using fresh prepare your tortillas.
  • 3When the potatoes are almost done heat 2 tsp oil in a large cast iron or other heavy skillet over medium high until it just starts to smoke. Add bell pepper and onion. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring very frequently, until done through with nice browned spots. How done is up to you.
  • 4You can serve your fajitas as separate ingredients to be assembled, or put them together like tacos. A tortilla, some potatoes, some bell pepper and onion, and any toppings you’d like.
