Chicken Fajitas Lettuce Wraps with Sweet Potato Fries – These quick, easy and absolutely delicious Lettuce Wraps are stuffed with seared onions, bell peppers, chicken strips and a good dose of sweet potato fries.
We SO need to talk about these! They are pretty much the only thing I want to eat for the rest of my life.
But, first! HI HI! How are you, friends?
Today we are talking about the DREAMIEST lettuce wraps of ALL time. That’s a big statement, I know, but wait until you try them.
This is what you make when you know you need something really, really good, but you don’t have the time to think about “what’s for dinner”, let alone cook thy dinner. BUT, that’s why I’m here! I’m here to give you a 30-minute dinner made in ONE skillet, and I have to make it deeeelicious!
Now… let me tell you about one of the best things I’ve ever done. I added sweet potato fries on top of my fajitas. Brilliant!
Though today there’s a new kinda sweet potatah in town and it involves these velvety, crunchy, all-natural Alexia Sweet Potato Fries with Sea Salt! They are my new everyday fry. Have you had these, yet? They’re SO GOOD. Then again, I’m Alexia Foods’ biggest fan and everything of theirs can be found in my freezer:
The truth is, Alexia Foods has always been there for me when I had only minutes to prepare dinner (am I really a soccer mom?!? is this real life???), or when we needed something just basic, yet delicious. Which is why we’re still crazy-hooked on their Waffle Fries!
And now… now, these 30-minute fajita wraps came along and they’re mind-blowing! life-changing!
We’re talking about crispy lettuce leaves filled with a homemade prepared chicken fajita mixture and topped with SWEET POTATO FRIES! Um… hello… that’s, like, pretty incredible. Theeeen, if you really wanna take it all over the top, drizzle just a tiny bit of light Ranch dressing over the whole thing and enjoy life!
