We're moving on now to the 2nd recipe in our Cook Once, Eat All Week series! Again, if you're brand new here and have no idea what I'm talking about THIS POST explains it all in detail.

This week's base recipes (which you can snag HERE) included ground beef, baked potatoes, and some sautéed kale. We're making use of those components now in today's recipe, in addition to a few strategic add-ins: blessed chorizo and some peppers.

We're making breakfast today! Of course, this dish can EASILY be dinner (or lunch). In addition to the ground beef that you've already prepped this week, we're going to crisp up some chorizo in this breakfast hash, too. You could also up the breakfast/protein power further by cracking an egg on top or simply serving it with a fried or poached egg. I also think it'd be delicious with a spoonful of this cilantro hollandaise. Make it your own and enjoy!

Note that this meal prep-friendly dish also freezes really well. I have several of these portioned-out and stashed away in the deep freeze waiting for our baby's arrival. For my freezer/defrost tips, check out the Cook Once, Eat All Week introductory post!
