Step by step photos and instructions below!
Sweet potato breakfast hash is the real deal, folks! Perfect for weekend brunch and super easy to make.
I’m a huge fan of Southwestern Recipes. This hash is packed with flavors from the Southwest, including jalapenos, fire roasted tomatoes, black beans, cilantro, bell peppers, onions, and sweet potatoes.
I use whatever ingredients I have on hand. Different colors of bell peppers, even cauliflower and broccoli have made an appearance in my sweet potato hash!
Top with a gooey fried egg and some sliced avocado for an absolute treat!
I make this at varying spice levels depending on who is eating, but it’s always fantastic. It’s gluten-free, and vegetarian. It could be vegan if you don’t top it with an egg!

Peel the sweet potatoes and dice into pieces Dice the bell peppers into about the same size. Slice the onions, dice the jalapenos small. Gather the rest of your ingredients. Drain the black beans, don’t drain the tomatoes.
Make the hash!
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the diced sweet potatoes and cook, turning regularly until browned and softened.
Add the red onions, bell peppers, and jalapenos and continue cooking for 5 minutes stirring occasionally until cooked and the sweet potatoes are browned
Season with salt and pepper.
Add the tomatoes, black beans and cumin/garlic/onion powder, stirring to combine, then add the cilantro immediately.
This can be served as is, or with eggs cooked in another pan while you make the hash. Try poached, fried or scrambled. Try this easy recipe for how to fry an egg from Momables.
This can go faster if you use pre cooked sweet potato.
Sprinkle the finished hash with some sliced green onions, or some cilantro.
Be sure your veggies are cooked til browned and crispy before adding the tomatoes and black beans. Your hash might turn out more soggy and mashed vs having your pieces of food separate and distinguishable!
What to do with leftovers
Store in the refrigerator and reheat when needed. This is actually a really good recipe for meal prep!
A little cayenne or chili flakes will bump the spice level up!
Add some smoked paprika for an extra boost!
