Easy! Tasty! Kid friendly! I adjusted the seasoning to be more taco-like and used fresh corn, and we had it for dinner with sour cream and cheese. I’ve already passed the recipe on to friends!

Such a great Alternative to traditional breakfast potatoes. Went way easy on the cumin and added some yellow & orange peppers. Squeeze a wedge or two of that lime right in the mix! Had to create an account just to rate this dish. Will definitely make again and again. Goes excellent with some salsa & cheese scrambled eggs with fresh avocado slices. Now that's Eating Well!

This is a great dish, I halved the cumin (and I am glad I did) and I used 2 cups of green lentils beans I cooked on the stovetop. My first recipe from this site and I will be making this again very soon!!

Delicious Dinner I microwaved the sweet potato on high for five minutes to soften it. Instead of adding four teaspoons of cumin, I added three teaspoons. Now that we're empty-nesters, I don't prepare many meals anymore. However, I had a desire to cook and wanted a change from the regular meals we tend to eat. I served corn muffins along with the hash. The meal was delightful and very tasty.I am now looking forward to preparing additional meals from eatingwell.com!

Easy, Tasty Protein This was idiot-simple and came out very well. My only qualm was that the beans, which are added near the end, did not absorb very much flavor. I added a teaspoon of molasses and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and that added some fullness. I served in tortillas with sour cream and salsa--delicious! Pros: quick, adaptable Cons: a little simple/bland

I made the following modifications: - added some red pepper when I added the water -squeezed lime juice from 1 lime at the end -added a dollop of sour cream, salsa and some chopped avocado just before serving YUM! YUM! Pros: Great colour, lots of flavour, and very filling

Yum! Very good, and easy. My husband and I loved this recipe. The only changes I made was to leave out the corn, simply because I didn't have any, and I cooked some eggs on top because that is how I like my hash. Can't wait to have leftovers tomorrow!
