This chorizo plantain breakfast hash is the most delicious way to start your day. Slight sweet and spicy and ready in just 30 minutes!

I’ve been trying this new thing where I actually eat breakfast every. single. morning. As lame as this sounds it’s not easy. I really only like to eat breakfast when I’m on vacation or someone else is cooking. Since I’m not really on vacation for most of the year (but a girl can dream, right?) that means I rarely eat breakfast.

However, it’s a new me and now I’m all about breakfast. Well that’s a little untrue. I’m still fighting to eat breakfast but I’m liking it a little more each and everyday. While most mornings are bowl of cottage cheese or Greek yogurt sometimes I like to get a little fancy. Usually those mornings are fueled by copious amounts of coffee and a desire to calm the hangry beast that lives inside my brain.

This chorizo plantain breakfast hash is the most delicious way to start your day. Slight sweet and spicy and ready in just 30 minutes!

This recipe is one of those hangry morning breakfasts. It’s a simple dish that combines two of my favorite things – chorizo and sweet plantains. I cooked them together to create a flavorful hash that just might be better than those traditional potato based hashes. I KNOW those are fighting words BUT it’s true! Then I took that hash and topped it with a fried egg, cotija cheese and cilantro.

If you’re a true breakfast lover this is most definitely going to be your new favorite!

    I am not a breakfast eater either. Mornings are not my thing. Now waking up to someone cooking this delicious breakfast for me and smelling all those fabulous aromas of the chorizo and plantains would have me sprinting out of bed. If only someone would cook breakfast for me.

    I am so glad you jumped on the breakfast bandwagon – as I am a breakfast person – I mean – look at this here plate of deliciousness! I cannot stop drooling at the thought of chorizo and plantains AND eggs on one plate – good thing there’s a screen separating me from this as I’d grab it out of your hands for sure otherwise!

    I’m all about breakfast, and I’d be a happy girl waking up to this any day! The use of plantains here is genius, and it doesn’t get any better than those perfectly fried eggs on top.

    I am NOT usually a breakfast eater, either. But when I make it, this is my kind of meal! Two of my favorite things are chorizo and sweet plantains – but I don’t have the patience to wait for plantains to ripen so I never have them at home. This recipe looks gorgeous… I might need to go on a plantain hunt today.

    This is perfect! I’m right there with you about not eating breakfast. I’m usually never hungry but by lunch I’m starving! I’d totally be hungry for this glorious bowl though!

    I am not a breakfast eater, well I don’t eat first thing in the morning. I’ve come to realize that breakfast can be anytime you want it to be! By mid-morning I would totally devour this breakfast! I love the sweet plantains and the chorizo together!
