This recipe is best done in a cast iron pan, which will give your potatoes the best color and crunch. I serve this up right in the skillet with salsa, limes, hot sauce, and queso fresco to garnish. —Kitchenette

What You'll Need
  • 4 large red potatoes, chopped in large cubes
  • 5-6 ounces fresh pork chorizo
  • vegetable oil
  • kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 serrano pepper, seeds & ribs removed, minced
  • 4 large eggs, beaten with a couple tablespoons of cream or milk
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • small handful chopped cilantro
  • queso fresco, lime wedges, salsa/hot sauce, for serving
  1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add a large pinch of salt and the potatoes; boil 4-5 minutes, until almost tender. Drain the potatoes and spread out on a towel to dry.
  2. Meanwhile cook the chorizo over medium-low heat until cooked through and crisp on the edges, about 10 minutes. Transfer the chorizo to a paper towel lined plate. Increase the heat to medium high, add a few tablespoons of oil and the potatoes to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until well browned, 10-12 minutes. Season with 1 teaspoon salt, paprika, and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium-low; add the garlic & serrano to the pan, cook 1 minute. Add the eggs, stir for a minute or so until the eggs are cooked through; remove from heat.
  4. Off the heat, stir in the scallions and cilantro. Serve with queso fresco, lime wedges, salsa, and/or hot sauce.

This hash is such a satisfying breakfast. Perfect amount of spice to start your morning. It was so good our guest added it to a burrito for dinner!
