    I just made this and it’s delicious!! The only downside is, I didn’t have any chipotle seasoning on hand so I settled for cajun seasoning. It came out awesome

    What are the nutrition facts for this recipe?

    My husband and I absolutely love these fajitas! We usually eat it as dinner and I make extra for meal prepping because it’s that good. The seasoning combo is perfect and it’s, by far, the best i’ve ever had. Thanks for the recipe!!

    I used a white sweet potato because I had one on hand. The spice mix for this is perfect! The sweet potato fries my family wants me to make again to have with dinner. Easy and healthy. I figured the calories to be about 200 cal for the veggies if you divide into 5 servings. Then add the calories from whatever rice and quac you use.

      Yum! I love white sweet potato too. I’m so glad your family all enjoys this recipe!

    Will the guac last an entire week? Never considered guac when meal prepping. Looks delicious by the way!

      I don’t recommend making the guacamole more than a day or two ahead of time. I usually just mash some up quickly that morning and add it to my container!

    Love this recipe!

    Remixed it a little by adding brown sugar and agave to the potatoes before baking.

    And topped my rice off with chile powder and a squeeze of like!

    I was a bit unsettled when my wife left for a meeting halfway through the prep stage (all the ingredients and spices) and expressed her extreme confidence in ME to finish this fajita recipe. But..LO AND BEHOLD! I got past my head voices and actually did a good job with all the directions! This meal is (at least for a novice like me) has a bigger bark than bite!
    I just followed the directions as best I could, although two of the spices were not available. Before I knew it, the 2 cookie sheets were in the oven. It took me a couple moments to trust that the fries only needed 10 minutes to get completely done. But upon sampling, yep…they were good!
    Thanks for this simple-but-tasty meal option!
