This is a great cowboy dinner (or breakfast) recipe that comes together in just three easy steps. The cast iron skillet will ensure your meal cooks evenly throughout, and (if seasoned properly) will give it amazing flavor.

Once your hash is starting to crisp, salsa and cheese are added in to create even more zesty flavor.
