Tamale Hash

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Debbwl

Well happy 2013! The success of this recipe depends on how good the tamales are that you use. This a quick and easy hash as it uses leftover Black-Eyed Pea Salsa (Cowboy Caviar) and leftover tamales.

This one hit the spot! I bought two tamales (pork) at a local Mexican market for this recipe and made a quick 'Cowboy Caviar'. I also subbed half of the cheddar cheese with cotija and homemade crema mexicana in place of sour cream. A definite winner in our household! Prepared for Holiday Hits. 2015-2016.

  2. As the hash is warming, prepare the eggs either sunny side up or over easy.
  3. To serve, dived the hash between two serving plates. Place an egg on top of each serving, top immediately with a finely grated cheese and cilantro. Serve sour cream on side if desired.
