Sweet potato and mince hash

  • 2 tablespoons oil, such as sunflower or avocado
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/4-inch cubes

    • 1
      In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, oregano, salt, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. The spice mix will keep in an airtight container in the pantry for up to 3 months.

      In a small bowl, mash the avocado, sour cream, and Chile Pequin with a fork. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.


    • 1
      Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add oil.

      Working in batches, cook sweet potatoes until lightly caramelized, 3-4 minutes per batch. Add onions and garlic. Cook until the sweet potatoes are tender and fragrant, about 2 minutes.
    • 3
      Add Fry’s Pea Protein Mince and gently break it up with a wooden spoon, scraping any caramelized bits from the bottom of the skillet.
    • 4
      Add bell peppers, butter, and 2 teaspoons Rebel’s taco seasoning. Stir to coat and cook until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have melded, 5-7 minutes.
    • 5
      Stir in the kale or spinach until wilted. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
    • 6
      Garnish with avocado, cilantro, lime wedges, and a hefty drizzle of avocado crema. Serve with warmed tortillas.

Chef's Notes

If using yogurt, add a little tang to your crema with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice or a teaspoon of distilled vinegar. 

Chile Piquin are tiny pungent chilis that really pack some heat. They have a complex and fruity flavor and are worth adding to your spice cabinet. If unavailable, use crushed red pepper flakes.
