Sweet Potatoes

  • 5 sweet potatoes
  • 1 flank or skirt steak thinly sliced
  • 1 bag frozen peppers and onions (I use Pic Sweet from Walmart)
  • ghee as desired
  • 1 tbsp olive oil for cooking


  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 1/4 cup roma tomaotes diced
  • 3 tbsp red onions thinly diced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lime juice fresh
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Fajita Seasoning

  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 3 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 1/4 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 1/4 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 1/4 tsp parsley


Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes

  • Clean the skins of your sweet potatoes and place to the side.
  • 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.
  • Cover and place vent or valve on lid to "sealed".
  • 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)
  • Allow pressure to release naturally. This process will usually take around 10 minutes.
  • Once pressure is released, go ahead and open lid and remove potatoes.

Fajita Steak and Peppers

  • Thinly slice your skirt or flank steak.
  • 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)
  • Cook until steak, peppers and onions are at desired doneness.


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

Fajita Seasoning

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

Stuffed Sweet Potaotes

  • Stuff each sweet potato with fajita mixture and top with fresh guacamole.
