Carne Asada Breakfast Hash

It’s not easy for me to get Tex-Mex food up here in Oregon. Shocker right? So, slowly over the years I have figured out how to make my own Tex-Mex. Once I figured out how to make Carne Asada on a grill I found all kinds of uses for it. I tend to make a breakfast hash to use up fresh ingredients before they go bad like peppers, cilantro, and tomatoes. 

Here’s a breakfast recipe I love, Carne Asada Hash. I hope you like it too!

Questions answered about this Carne Asada Hash

I have had several people ask questions now, so I thought I would add a little Q&A to this recipe.

What kind of potatoes can I use?

It doesn’t matter what kind of potatoes you use. I typically use whatever I had in the kitchen at the time. I think I have used three different kinds of potatoes and personally I cannot tell a difference. The same thing goes for the peppers and tomatoes, I use what I have on hand. This is an awesome recipe for using up ingredients before they go bad.

How do I make carne asada?

You can make the above recipe without going all out to make Carne Asada, but if you want to make Carne Asada and then use the leftovers for the hash then you will want this recipe! Carne Asada isn’t just great in a breakfast hash, but also delicious in tacos and burritos.
