Vegan Sizzling Black Bean & Sweet Potato Fajitas


Who doesn’t love fajitas?  These complete your Taco Tuesday or well, even your Meatless Monday!  With clean ingredients, all the flavor of a fajita plus none of the guilt, corn, gluten, dairy, or other junk (wow!), this fajita will knock your socks off!  We use homemade easy peasy Ottos Cassava Flour to make our vegan tortillas, however if you’re not strict vegan and just love a good fajita, Siete Foods coconut and cassava shells from Whole Foods are a delicious, pre-made shell to have on hand for convenience.



Cassava Flour


Grain Free option (NOT vegan)

Seriously though, if you’ve never made the cassava shells, they are SO simple and quick!  With literally a few ingredients, they have become a favorite around here.  Now, we don’t have the luxury of a tortilla shell maker just yet, so we improvise with an upside down bowl and a butter knife to cut around the bowl edges (haha), creating that perfect round shell shape and you can too.  Whether it’s Wednesday or Saturday, Monday, or Tuesday, here’s the delicious recipe so that you may enjoy these sizzling fellas any day of the week!

  1. 1 red pepper
  2. 1 orange pepper
  3. 1 sweet onion
  4. 1 TBSP olive oil
  5. gluten free fajita seasoning of choice (We use homemade)
  6. 1 sweet potato
  7. 1 can of refried black beans or plain (your preference)
  8. 6-8 grain free tortilla shells (Ottos)
  1. Cut sweet potato into quarters and steam for approximately 15-20 minutes until soft. Chop peppers and onions fajita style. While potato is steaming, heat up your re-fried beans on low in a saucepan until warm and start the veggies in a heated pan with the olive oil. Saute the veggies until soft or to your liking and sprinkle fajita seasoning over the veggies.
  2. Finally, when potato becomes soft, peel off the skin and mash until pureed. Now it's time to layer the sweet potato mash, and warm beans in your shell and pile on the fajita veggies. Top with some cashew sour cream, guacamole, pico and/or green onion if you choose, or enjoy plain. Zest with lime and instant party in your mouth.
  1. Our guacamole and pico can be found on the site too!
