For the record, I’m right there with you – I consider sweet potatoes to be their own food group. I also think sweet potatoes are ideal for meal prep because they stay fresh-tasting in the fridge and they don’t taste weird if you eat them cold.

It seems like I say this a lot, but that’s because it’s a huge thing we factor into making recipes for you guys – this meal prep recipe is EASY. You just chop the vegetables, spread them onto a sheet pan + season them, bake them while your rice is cooking, and then you’re done.

It’s also totally customizable. 🙌  You could easily roast up some tofu, shrimp, or chicken to add a protein boost. If you don’t like bell peppers or onions, you can leave them out and roast brussels sprouts, green beans, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, or whatever your heart desires!

    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!
