Cinco De Mayo week is still going strong here on Our Balanced Bowl. So far on my Instagram, I’ve shared my Easy Breakfast Quesadillas, Creamy Salsa Verde Guacamole, Chipotle Crema Tacos and today I’m sharing this Chorizo Kale and Sweet Potato Hash!

Hash might be one of my all time favorite breakfast foods. It usually has everything you could ever want in a meal – some type of meat, vegetables, greens and a runny fried egg. Why do I always forget how amazing hash’s are?! If anyone wants to volunteer to remind me every single week how much I love this Chorizo Hash, please let me know.

What is Chorizo?

I love love love chorizo. I feel like it’s definitely such an underrated meat! For those of you who may not know what chorizo is, it’s basically a Mexican spiced pork sausage. I’d say it ranges anywhere from more than mild to pretty darn spicy. For me, it leaves a tingle in the back of my throat. It’s my favorite meat to eat a taco with, so it’s only fitting I would want to place it in a meal where I could eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner! (Not saying that you can’t do that with tacos – you do you!)chorizo in cast iron skillet

The kale has a slight sweetness about it that matches with the sweet potatoes so well! The char on the sweet potato gives the hash a bit of crunch. The runny egg yolk makes everything come together in a huge punch of flavor! It’s crunchy, spicy, hints of sweet, and SO DANG GOOD. I would say this would go amazing with a pitcher of mimosas! Just saying. Let’s get into how to make this goodness!

Ingredients You Need:

  • sweet potato
  • ground chorizo
  • yellow onion
  • kale
  • egg
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder, olive oil

How to make Chorizo, Kale and Sweet Potato Hash: 

As always, I find it best to begin by chopping up your vegetables. So, dice the onion and de-stem your kale. Dice sweet potato into bite size pieces, which will make them cook a lot faster.

Heat up a cast iron skillet on medium heat. If you’re using a normal skillet, add a splash of olive oil to help keep from sticking. Once hot, add in your onion. Stir it around and let it cook for 1-2 minutes. To the pan, add the ground chorizo. Use a wooden spoon to break it up into chunks and let it cook for 5-6 minutes until fully cooked through.

Once cooked, put the onion/chorizo mixture on a plate and set it aside. To the same pan, add in your diced sweet potatoes. Add ¼ tsp of salt, a crack of pepper and ½ tsp garlic powder. Mix together. Cook these covered with a lid (to retain the heat so they will cook faster) for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once the sweet potatoes are done, add the chorizo/onion mixture back into the pan along with the stemmed kale. Mix well and cover the hash for 2 minutes while the kale steams. While the kale is cooking, in a non-stick skillet, melt ½ tbsp of butter. When it’s melted, crack one-two eggs. Season with salt. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes or until the whites are fully cooked through. Taste your hash and adjust seasoning for salt and pepper.
