Chorizo Plantain Breakfast Hash

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 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!
