Sweet Potato Fajitas

This is a lovely variation on traditional fajitas. Being a meatless meal it is one that can really help stretch the grocery budget, especially if you grow your own veggies and make the tortillas, taco seasoning, guacamole, salsa and yoghurt. 

6 tortillas
1 sweet potato, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 green capsicum, thinly sliced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp taco seasoning
1/2 lime
1/4-1/2 cup grated cheese (I use whatever is grated - tasty, mozzarella, colby - your choice)

To garnish:
Sour cream or plain yoghurt
Diced tomato
Shredded lettuce

Optional: Cooked shredded chicken or browned mince

Bake the sweet potatoes at 180 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes until soft and they have started to caramelize. Heat the oils in a heavy based frying pan and add the onion and capsicum. Add the softened sweet potato slices and sauté until all are softened and caramelized. Add the meat if you are having it (they are good without it). Squeeze the lime on it and sprinkle with taco seasoning. Gently stir through. Sprinkle the cheese over the veggies at the end of cooking, turn off the heat and allow it to melt.

To serve put a spoonful into the middle of a soft tortilla and add whatever garnishes you like. Roll up and enjoy!

  1. That is such a cheap and simple (and healthy) recipe. We grow our own sweet potatoes because they are so easy and are available all year round so I'm always looking for new ways to use them.
