Crispy roasted sweet potato, poblano chile, and spicy chorizo hash topped with a fried egg, crumbled asadero cheese, and thinly sliced avocado. —Riley Wofford

What You'll Need
  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound chorizo, casings removed
  • 2 poblano chiles, seeded and chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 3 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 fried eggs
  • 1 cup crumbled Asadero cheese
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Toss the sweet potatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and arrange in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for 40 to 45 minutes, until tender and golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chorizo and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until cooked through. Add the poblano chiles, bell peppers, and shallots, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the spinach, cilantro, and butter and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until the spinach is wilted. Stir in the sweet potatoes.
  3. To serve, transfer the hash to plates. Place one fried egg over each plate and top with the cheese and avocado slices.

I made this last night and it was really good. The only change I made was to mix the eggs into the chorizo mixture after the veggies were all cooked, rather than fry the eggs separately. I also drained off as much of the fat as possible before adding the peppers.
