Swiss Chard and Spiced Sweet Potato Hash

This hash is a perfect side dish to grilled or roasted chicken, pork carnitas or black beans - and one that my whole family loves. But the dish I look most forward to, is the next morning. I have a hard time coming up with a more delicious brunch dish than this hash blanketed with 2 fried eggs, tomatillo salsa, hot sauce and a sliced avocado. Heaven on a plate for this brunch loving girl!

Sweet Potatoes

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp chipotle chili powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp Mexican oregano
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt

Swiss Chard and Onions

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large onions, sliced
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 large bunch of swiss chard, roughly chopped ribs and stems removed and thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped


  1. Cook the sweet potatoes first- heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the sweet potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally. When they begin to get slightly tender, add the spices and continue to cook until they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Remove to a medium bowl and set aside.

  2. Next, cook the onions and swiss chard- in the same pan heat the remaining olive oil over medium-low. Add the onions and salt, stirring occasionally until the onions are sweet and translucent. Increase the heat to medium and add the garlic and chard stems. Saute until about 2 minutes, or until the stems are no longer crisp. Add the chard leaves, stir and cover briefly while the leaves wilt.

  3. Add spiced sweet potatoes back to the pan and gently combine. Taste for seasoning.
