Grilled Sweet Potato Fajitas

Using hearty sweet potatoes, peppers and onions, and refried beans, these grilled vegan fajitas are packed with veggies, protein, and topped with healthy fats from avocado – and a little kick from salsa! 

Grilled Sweet Potato Fajitas

These grilled sweet potato fajitas will fill you up and are packed with flavor and texture. I love using slabs of sweet potato as the main “meat” with these fajitas, served traditionally with peppers and onions and tortillas.

Building up the fajitas, I’ve added refried beans, avocado, and salsa, for even more protein and flavor in every bite wrapped in tortilla. I love using Siete tortillas here, but use any tortilla brand you’d like.

These grilled sweet potato fajitas are fun to serve family style, letting everyone build their own! You could also customize these as you’d like with your favorite toppings!

Grilled Sweet Potato Fajitas

I’ve really gotten into grilling over quarantine, and I think the grill flavor of the sweet potatoes, peppers, and onions takes these fajitas a long way, but if you don’t have access to a grill, you can make these in a sheet pan by roasting the sweet potatoes, bell peppers, and onions at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.

Enjoy these and if you make them, share with the hashtag #inspiralized!



Grilled Sweet Potato Fajitas

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 2 red bell peppers sliced in 1/4" slices
  • 1 small red onion cut in 1" slices
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes any type will work sliced in 1/4" thick slices
  • chili powder to season
  • to assemble and serve: refried beans avocado, salsa, tortillas


  • Preheat the grill to 400 degrees.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together a tablespoon of the olive oil and taco seasoning. Add the peppers and onions and toss to coat. Transfer them to a greased grill basket.
  • In the same mixing bowl used to toss the peppers, add the sweet potatoes and drizzle with another tablespoon of olive oil. Season with chili powder and toss together to coat. Transfer the sweet potato slices on a large greased grill pan, careful not to overlap (for best results.)
  • Grill for 10 minutes, then flip the sweet potatoes and grill another 5-10 minutes or until fork tender. When you flip the sweet potatoes, toss the peppers and onions.
  • Meanwhile, gather and assemble your fixings. We love to use refried beans, avocado, and salsa.
  • Once vegetables are done grilling, serve family style with tortillas and fixings.

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? #liketkit

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 ...
