Chicken Fajita Bowls with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

Fajita night just got WAY easier.

I’ll admit, I have very basic, rudimentary knife skills. I definitely don’t hold the knife the right way and I could certainly mince with more precision.

I will say, I’m sure a knife skills 101 class would make me a quicker cook, since buying a great brand of knives in the first place changed my cooking game.

I’m not great at getting evenly sliced cuts when I slice vegetables, especially when slicing onions and peppers. Some are chunky, some are crooked, and some are too thin.

Luckily, enter my savior, the Inspiralizer. The Inspiralizer makes gorgeous noodles out of veggies, but it also works just like a veggie slicer and is much easier to use than a mandoline.

Whenever I do spiralizing demos, people always give me the most “oohs” and “aahs” when I spiralize onions and bell peppers! I think it’s because we all secretly hate slicing onions and peppers. It’s monotonous and takes a lot of focus!

Well, you’ll be able to spiralize an onion in under 10 seconds (more like 5 seconds) with the Inspiralizer. All the same width and shape. Easy to toss into meals like these chicken fajitas!

I added sweet potato noodles for some extra heartiness and nutrients. Plus, I love roasted and cubed sweet potatoes in my burrito bowls, so I wanted to incorporate them here! They add a nice sweetness.

Make these fajitas for dinner and then bring the leftovers to work the next day – they save well in the refrigerator! And you can’t go wrong with avocado, salsa, and fajitas, right?

Happy Monday! Hope you all are having a stellar start to your weeks!

Ingredients

  • For the fajitas:
  • 4 thin-cut boneless chicken breasts sliced into strips
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 white onion peeled
  • 1 large sweet potato or 2 mediums sweet potatoes peeled
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce I used Bibb
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted and insides sliced
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • For the fajita seasoning:
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon oregano

Instructions

  • Mix together the ingredients for the fajita seasoning a small bowl.
  • Place the chicken, half the olive oil, lime juice, and half of the fajita seasoning in a medium bowl and toss together well. Set aside in the refrigerator while you prepare the spiralized vegetables.
  • Spiralize the bell peppers and onions with Blade A. Switch to Blade D and spiralize the sweet potatoes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once heated, add the chicken and any remaining oil/seasonings. Cook for 5 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink on the inside. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet back over medium-high heat. Immediately add the sweet potatoes, onions, and bell peppers. Add the remaining fajita seasoning mix and toss well to combine. Let cook for 10 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through, tossing occasionally.
  • Assemble the fajita bowls: divide the fajita mixture, chicken, and lettuce into bowls. Top with avocado and salsa.

Ali, when you are calculating WW points are you calculating on a per serving? For instance when you say its 8 points, is that per serving or for the whole recipe? I love your recipes, thanks for sharing.
Judy says:
lettuce & salsa aren't mentioned in the list of ingredients

This was great and surprisingly filling. Even my husband said, "It's good!" High praise since his usual answer is "fine."

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
