A quick and easy weeknight dinner that is perfect for even the pickiest of eaters!
Do you guys ever feel like you are eating the same meals on rotation, over and over again?!
I definitely do. Especially during those busy week days. It’s usually either one of our go to pastas, a quick salad or a chicken stir fry. Yummy but it gets old real fast!
I’m always trying to try new things though, so on those weeks when I have a little more time you can find me testing new recipes out, in hopes of having them be regulars!
These fajita stuffed sweet potatoes definitely passed the test. Full of flavour, delicious and oh so easy! All of my favourite things!
Read on for this super simple recipe!
Don’t like sweet potatoes? This recipe can be made with regular baked potatoes as well!
Fajita Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Yields 4 potatoes
- 4 sweet potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed of any dirt
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1/2 white onion
- 1 tbsp fajita seasoning You can use storebought or a homemade one like this one here
- 1 ear of corn, cut off the cob
- 1/2 cup tomato salsa
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
- assortment of limes and hot sauce for serving
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Rub 1 tbsp olive oil on potatoes until evenly coated, about 1/2 tsp each.
Poke potatoes with a fork or sharp knife, 2 to 3 times each side.
Bake in oven for 45-60 minutes or until fork tender
In the meantime, slice peppers and onions. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add remaining olive oil. Gently add in peppers and onions. Toss to coat. Add fajita seasoning and stir. Close lid of skillet and let cook 15-20 minutes over low heat, until vegetables are cooked through. Set aside
In a food processor, blender or by hand, mix up sour cream and avocado. I find that if the avocado is perfectly ripened, doing it by hand is quick and easy!
Remove potatoes from oven. Let cool for 5-10 minutes.
Cut a vertical slit along top and gently open up potato. Top with onion pepper mixture, shredded cheese and various other toppings. Gently scoop Avocado Cream on top.
Serve and enjoy!
What I love most about meals like this is that you can really customize them! Grilled corn, black beans, jalapeños, cortija cheese- these are all options you can add in! Just use tiny bowls to display the toppings and let your family members go wild!
