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.

Fajita Steak and Peppers

  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.

Fajita Seasoning

  1. Mix all together and use 2 tbsp in fajita meat and peppers.

✨We all need quick meals and I’m obsessed with these  English Muffin Tuna Melts. They can be on the dinner table in under 15 minutes and can be tailored to be gluten and dairy free. 

 ✨ENGLISH MUFFIN TUNA MELTS✨
*3 English muffins split in half (gluten-free or regular)
*Butter (to toast muffins) optional
*6 slices Colby Jack cheese or cheese of choice (you can also use dairy-free cheese)
*6 slices red onion, thinly sliced (Optional, but adds nice crunch and flavor)
*Three 5-ounce cans of white meat tuna packed in water, drained
*2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
*2 tbsp dill relish or 2 large pickle spears, chopped
*1/3 cup homemade or mayo of choice
*1 tablespoon pickle juice
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
*Parsley for garnish

✨Instructions✨
1. MIX THE TUNA SALAD: In a medium mixing bowl, add the canned tuna and break up the tuna with a fork. Transfer the chopped onions, relish, pickle juice, salt/pepper, and mayo. Mix together until combined. 
2. TOAST MUFFINS: You can choose to toast the English muffins with butter under the broiler for 2-3 minutes. However, if you don’t want to toast before adding the tuna, that’s okay. It still turns out great without toasting muffins first. 
3. BUILD THE MELTS: Divide the tuna mixture evenly among each of the toasted English muffins. Add a thin slice red onion along with a thin slice of Colby Jack cheese over the top.  Return to the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes in a 375F oven or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
