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.

2 c
peeled diced sweet potato
1 Tbsp
olive oil
2 tsp
fajita seasoning
2 tsp
olive oil
2 large
bell peppers, sliced
1 small
onion, sliced vertically into strips
corn tortillas
fat free sour cream or plain yogurt
avocado, diced
chopped fresh cilantro


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.
