Welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Chicken Fajita Sweet Potatoes.

This weekend was Ollie cat’s birthday and yes I celebrated with a little get together.  Ollie is my, soon to be 2 year old, niece’s favourite thing in the world.  Ollie on the other hand tends to play a bit hard to get.

Back to the less exciting topic of sweet potatoes – I’ve had this recipe idea floating around for ages and never got round to making it.  The first time I tried to make it I ordered a single sweet potato from Tesco as part of weekly shop.  When it was delivered it was literally the size of my head and would have made this recipe for about four people to share!

I finally got round to getting some sensible sized potatoes, stuffed them with my chicken fajita mix and topped with some dairy free cheese.  The perfect lunch with a big scoop of mashed avocado.
