This is a super filling and flavorful solution for a busy weekday lunch or dinner. The sweet potato fajita filling is a combination of bite-sized pieces of chicken breast, bell peppers, onion, and kidney beans, all sauteed and seasoned with our homemade southwest seasoning blend. The seasoning blend is a combination of cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and oregano — a perfect mixture of flavors for this remixed fajita. Another tasty component that can be made well in advance is the homemade pico de gallo, a simple mixture of ripe diced tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice.
Hacking this Recipe
This recipe uses two make-ahead components: the pico de gallo and southwest seasoning. The pico de gallo will keep, refrigerated, for 3-4 days. The southwest seasoning mix will keep for a week or two, at room temperature, if properly sealed in an airtight container. Of course, you can use your favorite store-bought products instead of making these components from scratch.
