Mexican Spiced Sweet Potato Hash

Print

While my home state of Texas is known as land of smoked brisket and chili, there are countless heirloom varieties of root vegetables, peppers and other garden gems that can thrive in our oftentimes inhospitable climate. Variations of this dish can be found in high-end steakhouses throughout Texas and is an amazing accompaniment to grilled game meats. On it’s own it is guaranteed to satisfy any herbivore with true north of the border flair and depth of flavor.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This recipe sounded so delicious that I had to make it. I love that it included so many vegetables and has a satisfying finish. Sweet potatoes have a considerable amount of vitamin A, B6 and fiber. People with cirrhosis will sometimes experience poor appetite and muscle loss but this dish pairs beautifully with an egg on top to boost the calorie, protein and vitamin content of this already winning dish!
