Mexican Potato Hash [Vegan, Gluten-Free]
For the Hash:
- 2 1/2 pounds potatoes
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 poblano, roasted, de-seeded, de-stemmed, and diced
- 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
- 1 jalapeño, minced (optional)
- 1 cob of corn, cut off the cob, or 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 large white onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoon ancho powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
For the Topping:
- 1/2 cup green onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
- 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced (optional)
- 1 cup tomato, wedged or diced
- 1–2 avocados, thinly sliced or diced
- Place the potato chunks into a large bowl filled with water. Set aside
- Roasted the poblano, remove stem and seeds, dice, and then refrigerate.
- Add the red pepper, jalapeño, and fresh-cut corn to a covered bowl and refrigerate.
- In another covered bowl, add the cilantro, green onions, and jalapeño and refrigerate.
- Add the onions to a sauté pan with olive oil and saute on medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeño then continue cooking for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the garlic starts to become golden. Stir in the red pepper, poblano, and corn. Cook for a couple additional minutes and take off the heat. Set aside.
- Put the potatoes in a 5-quart pot covered with water and add the vinegar. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down to medium-low and continue to cook for about 8 minutes. You want them to be soft, but still a little firm. Strain.
- In a large skillet, add the olive oil and turn the heat to medium-high heat. When the oil becomes hot, add the potatoes. Let them brown a little before stirring. Add the ancho powder, paprika, and salt, then continue to stir and cook until they are golden brown. Add the onion mix, stir well and continue to cook for a couple minutes until the entire mixture is hot.
- Serve with a wedge of lime, tomatoes, avocado, and the cilantro mix.
