This recipe is a modern twist on traditional hash recipes that have been enjoyed for generations. The combination of sweet potatoes, sausage, and eggs is a classic breakfast combination that has been updated with the addition of chili powder, cumin, and fresh tomato salsa for a flavorful and satisfying meal.


How to prepare

  1. Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp of olive oil.
  2. Add the breakfast sausage and break it up with the back of a wooden spoon into little chunks. Brown the sausage for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes and 0.75 of the chopped red onion to the sausage. Season with chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Stir frequently and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the potatoes are nice and tender.
  4. While the hash is cooking, in a small bowl combine the tomatoes, jalapeno, and the remaining chopped red onion. Add cilantro, lime juice, and a little salt and pepper.
  5. Once the hash is cooked, add the chopped parsley and stir to combine. Transfer the hash to a serving platter.
  6. Sprinkle with the cheese and cover with aluminum foil. The cheese will melt while you make the fried eggs.
  7. Wipe clean the skillet you made the hash in. Return it to the cooktop over medium-high heat and add the butter.
  8. Once the butter has melted, crack each of the eggs into the skillet. Season with a little salt and pepper and fry to desired doneness.
  9. Eggs may, of course, be scrambled as well.
  10. As you like, transfer the fried eggs to the top of the hash. Sprinkle with the fresh tomato salsa and serve.


  • For a vegetarian version, you can omit the sausage and add extra vegetables like bell peppers or zucchini.
  • You can also customize the spice level by adjusting the amount of chili powder and jalapeno pepper to suit your taste.

The first time I saw this recipe, I was filled with a sense of excitement. It was a chilly fall afternoon, and I had just finished picking fresh sweet potatoes from my garden. As I flipped through an old cookbook that belonged to my dear friend Martha, I stumbled upon a recipe for Chili Sweet Potato Hash with Fried Eggs and Fresh Tomato Salsa. The combination of flavors and ingredients intrigued me, and I knew I had to give it a try.

I had always been passionate about cooking, ever since I was a young girl watching my own grandmother prepare delicious meals in her cozy kitchen. Over the years, I had collected recipes from various sources - cookbooks, friends, and even strangers I met at farmer's markets. Each recipe held a special place in my heart, and I loved experimenting with new flavors and techniques.

It was a perfect dish for a cool autumn evening, comforting and satisfying in every bite.

I set to work in my own kitchen, chopping the sweet potatoes into small cubes and tossing them with olive oil, chili powder, cumin, and a pinch of salt. As the sweet potatoes roasted in the oven, filling the air with their warm, earthy aroma, I prepared the fresh tomato salsa. I diced ripe tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, and cilantro, and mixed them together with lime juice and a sprinkle of salt.

Once the sweet potatoes were tender and golden brown, I piled them onto a large skillet and cracked a few eggs on top. As the eggs sizzled and cooked to perfection, I spooned the fresh tomato salsa over the hash, adding a burst of color and freshness to the dish. The smell of the spices mingling with the eggs and sweet potatoes filled the kitchen, making my mouth water in anticipation.

When everything was ready, I carefully plated the Chili Sweet Potato Hash, garnishing it with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and a drizzle of hot sauce.

As I took my first bite, I knew I had stumbled upon a true gem of a recipe.
