Fajita Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

May 9, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

I love how you can turn a plain boring sweet potato into a magical meal just by adding a combination of protein and veggies. These Whole30 compliant Fajita Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are the perfect lunch or dinner. The possibilities are endless when it comes to stuffing sweet potatoes. Sometimes I will use shredded pork, chicken and even throw a fried egg on top. Sweet potatoes are a great base for any meal.

To make life easier, I cooked my sweet potatoes in the Instant Pot and dinner was ready in 20 minutes. Feel free to get creative and try different combinations to come up with something magical. Don’t forget my number one tip….ALWAYS make extras for leftovers. At my house, leftovers save lives.

Instructions

Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes

  1. Clean the skins of your sweet potatoes and place to the side.
  2. Place steamer rack/basket (the one that comes with your instant pot) in the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. Add your sweet potatoes to the top of the steamer rack.
  3. Cover and place vent or valve on lid to “sealed”.
  4. Use the manual mode on the Instant Pot and set to pressure cook on high for 18 minutes. (cooked 5 potatoes and they were medium sized)
  5. Allow pressure to release naturally. This process will usually take around 10 minutes.
  6. Once pressure is released, go ahead and open lid and remove potatoes.

  1. Thinly slice your skirt or flank steak.
  2. Add your steak to a hot skillet with olive oil, and fajita seasoning (2 tbsp) along with your bag of mixed peppers and onions (I use 1 bag of the PicSweet brand from Walmart)
  3. Cook until steak, peppers and onions are at desired doneness.

Guacamole

  1. Peal your avocados and add to a bowl.
  2. Add your onions, tomatoes and seasoning and mix together with a fork until smooth.
