Chorizo and Sweet Potato Hash with Pimiento Peppers

Chorizo and Sweet Potato Hash with Pimientos

Inspiration: I’ve seen a lot of chorizo and sweet potato hash recipes all over the web for a few years, and it’s one of those ideas that I’ve always wanted to try. It’s a recipe that could be great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Excellent.

What We Loved: This was one of those dishes that was a great contrast between spicy and sweet. The chorizo had a great spicy kick, and the sweet potatoes and peppers were both nice and sweet. I thought it was interesting that the two sweet ingredients provided different kinds of sweet – the peppers had a nice, tangy sort of sweet, while the potatoes were more in the line of sugary sweet. Combined with the spicy sausage, some browned onions, and a nice bit of salt, the flavor profile was really quite lovely.

Tips: I really went simple with this dish, which is good if that’s what you’re looking for. If you’d like to complicate things a bit, though, I think that cilantro or black beans would be a good addition, and sour cream or goat cheese would be nice toppings.

    • No, I have not tried it! But I am of the mind that regular chorizo is healthy, so long as it’s from well-fed and humanely raised animals :)

  3. Looks great! I love corned beef hash, but never would have thought of sweet potato and chorizo. Are the jarred pimiento peppers easy to find? I don’t think I’ve ever seen them.
