Ok, so it is probably very public knowledge by now that my husband is a hater of winter squash and sweet potatoes. He does not like them one bit, especially when sweet potatoes are covered with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. He turns up his nose to my stuffed acorn squash recipe, and let’s not even mention sweet potato casserole, ok?
I just cannot understand this, so I have been desperate to try and find some way that he will eat them. Masking them with spicy southwestern flavors seemed like it would be a worthy effort, especially with crispy bacon in there, too!!

And you know what, he said that maybe sweet potatoes were not so bad after all, in small quantities. Coming from him, that is a glowing review. By the way, I love this sweet potato hash recipe! 🙂 It makes a great meal no matter the time of day – whether you want something savory for breakfast, a good hearty lunch, or something fun and different for dinner.
The southwest spices give a bit of heat, but not spicy hot, the eggs are cooked perfectly, and those crispy sweet potatoes are swoon-worthy!

Can I make sweet potato hash with regular potatoes?

Sweet potatoes have more health benefits than white potatoes, but you can definitely use them if you prefer them.
