Fill up on nutritious ingredients by preparing Food Network’s southwestern hash. Potatoes, beans, eggs, vegetables, and savory seasonings create a dish that provides the perfect start and finish to your day. The recipe yields four servings.
- 1 pound small red potatoes, cut into ½-inch cubes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder or other chili powder
- 3 medium tomatoes, diced
- 1 can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- ⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 4 eggs
- Hot pepper sauce, for serving
Directions: Place the potatoes in a large non-stick skillet. Cover with water, bring to a boil, and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 8 minutes. Drain and set potatoes aside. Dry the skillet with a paper towel. Add the oil and heat over a medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook until vegetables have softened, about 6 minutes.
Stir in the potatoes, garlic, cumin, oregano, and chili powder. Add the tomatoes and beans and simmer for 5 minutes or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in cilantro. Transfer the hash onto serving plates. With the heat off, wipe out the pan again. Spray it with cooking spray, turn heat on to medium-low and cook the eggs, sunny-side up, or over-easy. Put an egg on top of each mound of hash. Serve with hot sauce.
