Steak Fajitas with Sweet Potato and Poblano

This recipe is delicious. I suggest you double the yummy sauce- you won't regret it. My family had real fajitas in tortillas, however I put the meat and veggies over crispy romaine lettuce as the recipe suggested can be done with leftovers.

Steak Fajitas with Sweet Potato and Poblano (Real Simple Magazine, November 2010)

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into ¼” pieces
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 ¼ pounds skirt steak, cut into 4 pieces
½ cup sour cream
1 to 2 teaspoons chopped chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (you can find it at Karns)
8 small tortillas, warmed (or serve the steak and potatoes over crispy romaine lettuce)

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sweet potato, onion, poblano, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, heat broiler. Season the steak with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Let rest at least 5 minutes before slicing. (I simply sauted the meat in the same skillet after removing the potatoes) In a small bowl, combine the sour cream and chipotles. Fill the tortillas with the steak, vegetables and chipotle sour cream.


  1. ooo - this looks amazing! can't wait to try!

  2. This really does look amazing with the sweet potatoes in the fajitas. I love it! Also, thanks for telling us where to find the chipotle chilies. Those kind of things are hard to find around here.

  4. And don't you love when you ask where things are, like capers or prosciutto or sun dried tomatoes and they look at you like you're from Mars?

    I am so trying this one.
