Sweet Potato Fajitas

 

This is the second Hello Fresh meal kit I received. I wanted one to be vegetarian and I was not disappointed. I am a sweet potato fan and mixing them with the spices cut through the sweetness perfectly. With the meal kit came the ingredients and directions to include pickled jalapeño, fresh salsa and lime sour cream. Everything was super yummy but needed more heat so add some jalapeños to everything if you like the heat. I forgot to take a picture of the finished meal because everyone was so hungry. Above is a picture of the direction card from Hello Fresh.

Ingredients:

  • Sweet potatoes (the amount depends on how many people you are cooking for)
  • 2 jalapenos (1 to pickle and 1 for the salsa)
  • 2 red onions (1 for fajitas and 1 for the salsa)
  • 2 long green peppers, core and thinly sliced
  • 2 tomotoes
  • Pepper jack cheese (or any cheese you prefer)
  • 3 limes
  • Cilantro
  • Sour cream
  • Tortillas (flour or corn, whichever you prefer)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp white sugar + 1/2 tsp for pickled jalapeno
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Directions:

Make the fajitas first: Adjust your oven rack to top position and heat to 425 degrees. Cut sweet potato into 1/2 inch thick wedges, place in a bowl and drizzle with oil and all spices listed. Roast until tender and lightly crisped 30-40 minutes.

Make the pickled jalapeños: Thinly slice the jalapeños into rounds, place in small bowl and add juice of 1 lime and 1/2 tsp sugar with a pinch of salt, set aside.

Make the veggies: Heat some oil in a pan and add 1 onion and green pepper, both thinly sliced. Cook until softened and lightly charred. Season with salt and pepper

Make the salsa: chop the tomatoes, cilantro, 1 diced onion, juice of 1 lime, salt and pepper and chopped jalapeño for heat.

Add the zest of a lime and squeeze some lime juice into sour cream

Heat your tortillas and enjoy.
