  • 1/2 a red onion (sub any onion or shallot)¬†
  • 1/2 a yellow bell pepper (sub any bell pepper or vegetable you have on hand)¬†
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (sub cayenne, cumin, adobo, etc. use any spice you have on hand)
  • Salt + Pepper to taste¬†

  • 3 avocados¬†
  • 1 lime¬†
  • 1 handful of cilantro¬†
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Avocado Crema Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado¬†
  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt LINK
  • 1 lime¬†
  • 1 handful of cilantro (any herbs will do)¬†
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Accoutrement Ingredients:

  • 4+ tortillas LINK
  • extra limes, cilantro + sea salt for garnish¬†
  • hot sauce¬†



  1. Bring a small to medium pan to a boil for your potato(es)
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, in a food processor add in all of the ingredients for the avocado crema. Blend until thick & creamy. Pour into a bowl & set aside. 
  3. Drop your potatoes into the boiling pan & cover for 8-10 minutes. You want them 75% cooked through, the skillet will crisp the edges and finish the job from there. 
  4. Turn a medium skillet (preferably a cast iron) to medium heat for the hash. 
  5. While your potatoes cook & your skillet heats up, make your guacamole. With a mortar & pestle mash your avocados + cilantro to your desired consistency, we perfect it chunky. If you don't have a mortar, a bowl & fork will work just fine. You will need to chop up the cilantro if you go this route. Squeeze in the lime, give it a final mix. Sprinkle in sea salt to taste. Set aside.
  6. Your skillet will be hot, now you can pour in the oil. Adding the oil to a hot pan VS cold pan prevents the food from sticking. Add in the finely diced garlic. Keep the garlic together on the edge of the skillet to cook evenly & prevent burning. Garlic cooks quickly, a minute or 2 does the job. 
  7. Add in the diced onion. Let that sweat out for a few minutes until it starts to brown & get fragrant. 
  8. While your onion sweats out, strain your potato(es) & let them cool for a few minutes. 
  9. Add the diced pineapple, jalape√Īo, bell peppers, paprika, salt and pepper to the skillet to begin caramelizing with the onion. Use a spatula to cook and stir for about 2-3 minutes.¬†
  10. Turn another skillet on medium to low heat for the scrambled eggs. While this heats up, dice your potato(es) & add to the hash. Cook & stir uncovered for another 7 minutes. 
  11. In a medium bowl, break the eggs with a tablespoon of water or milk, some salt and pepper. Use 1/2 teaspoon butter, oil or spray once the pan is hot & pour the eggs into the skillet. Keep the heat on medium/medium low, you don't want to rush it here-- if the skillet is too hot the eggs will cook too quickly and become rubbery. Once you pour the eggs in they will begin to cook immediately. Using a spatula begin pulling the cooked outer edges in towards the center of the eggs. Uncooked eggs will flood the area you just pulled back. Once scrambled, transfer to a covered bowl or plate. 
  12. Now for the tortillas. Transfer the hash to a large covered bowl & use the same skillet to crisp your tortillas to your liking. As you finish each tortilla, cover them in a breathable linen-wrapped bowl or plate to stay warm & not dry out. 
  13. Grab a plate & build your own breakfast burrito. We paint the tortilla with avocado crema, make a bed of hash, a spoon of scrambled eggs & top with guacamole & hot sauce. 
  14. Savor every bite!
