Save your Waistline and Your Wallet

You will want to dive right in to this scrumptious, budget-friendly meal!

Getting out of bed can be difficult. It becomes dramatically easier when you have a yummy morning meal to look forward to! The wonderful combination of tastes and textures in our Tex-Mex breakfast hash is enough reason to give it a shot, but this recipe can also save you from consuming excess calories and spending too much money.

Picking up a breakfast sandwich from your local coffee shop every morning can not only be detrimental to your waistline, but it can have an impact on your wallet as well. One serving of this budget-friendly breakfast is only 380 calories, providing you with 15 grams of protein, a hefty dose of energy-boosting fats, and even 13 grams of appetite-suppressing fiber! 

The ingredients are all affordable, and you probably already have several of them in your kitchen. Plus, this skillet recipe makes four servings, so you may be able to get multiple breakfasts out of a single recipe! 

How to Make Our Easy Tex-Mex Breakfast Hash

Dig into this Tex-Mex breakfast hash on any day of the week!

Add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add your chopped yellow onion and cook for about three minutes. Next, add the diced sweet potatoes to the skillet and cook for another eight minutes or so. Add the diced red bell pepper to the skillet and cook the mixture until all of the veggies have started to brown. 

After you’ve drained and rinsed your black beans, add them to the skillet. This is only to warm them up and combine them with the onion, sweet potato, and bell pepper. You only need to cook this mixture for an additional minute. 

Divide the breakfast hash mixture evenly among your serving bowls and fry the eggs in the same pan. Add an egg to each bowl and sprinkle the dish with shredded cheese. Finish off the bowls by adding a slice or two of avocado and two tablespoons of salsa. 

Now we do want to note that you can technically prepare the hash ahead of time and reheat it in the pan or microwave before frying your eggs. That’s a great way to speed this breakfast up on a busy weekday morning!
