Mexican Hash Brown

Mexican Hash brown

Weather you are hosting a brunch or making a regular breakfast for the family, these mexican hashbrown are a total hit. Mexican Hash brown is packed with lots of flavor and comes together in no time. Mexican hash brown is made from shredded potatoes, salsa, black beans, cheese, and then topped with fried egg, scallions, cilantro, and cotija cheese. It is an absolute delight to wake up to! TRUST ME.

I take a shortcut and buy frozen hash brown from trader joe’s. It made the process faster, and I feel it gets the potatoes crispier than the homemade ones. If you want to shred potatoes and make it at home that’s completely fine as well. Mexican Hash brown is perfect to make for a large crowd, or even for yourself! I hope you guys make it soon and enjoy it as much as we do. Don’t forget to tag me @zheelicious, I would love to see your creation.

Stay happy, stay hungry!
