I’m pretty sure red peppers were on sale earlier this week because I’ve found myself swimming in them, if you can’t tell from my recent recipes. But, to my advantage they add great flavor and vibrant red color to any dish. So why not throw some in a good ol’ potato hash, right?
This one has a little southwest flair to it with cumin, chili powder and fresh cilantro. Super simple, delicious side with grilled chicken, fish, or a lean steak. So good, I even dipped my corn tortilla chips in it tonight, sort of a hash nachos maybe? Anyway, if you’re not a sweet potato lover this recipe could convert you. I wouldn’t steer you wrong, would I?
Great way to use up extra onesie and twosie potatoes. Gluten-free eaters enjoy as well!
