Tex Mex Purple Potato Hash

Jump to recipe...

Okay this recipe is from the archives! I literally made this like a year ago and took photos, just never posted it for some reason (sometimes life just happens). I found the photos when I was browsing through old pictures and remembered all about these potato goodness. It’s a perfect brunch dish or lunch, heck you can even eat it for dinner! I don’t judge people, you do you. It would be perfect for a brunch party! You can make like a hash brown bar and lay out all the cooked ingredients and people can make their own. You can make this vegan by omitting the egg. OR top it with a runny egg YUM!

Hope y’all enjoy this easy brunch recipe.

Stay happy, stay hungry!

  • You can use any potatoes you have on hand. Sweet potatoes would be really good in this.
  • You can top this with cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, whatever you like!
  • I use McCormick’s brand taco seasoning. I buy the big bottle from Costco.
