Sweet Potato & Chorizo Hash

“I found this recipe when I was looking for something to serve alongside Betty’s Eggs Ole. With the eggs, it is a complete meal, or without the eggs it makes a great side dish. Serve with any of the toppings you like, but the Avocado Crema is highly recommended, especially if you are going to up the heat with the Cayenne Pepper.” – April Ferre
