This would be a great addition to any breakfast. Having this alongside some fried eggs and toast and I'd be ready to start any sort of day. I like the idea of making this with sausage, but I'd also like to try upping the quantity of bacon by a couple of slices. I agree that the chipolte salsa is a great choice, and the cheddar cheese topping just about makes this a perfect dish.

Breakfast hash is such a wonderful way to start any day and I love how hearty and filling it is. Chipotle salsa is definitely the right way to go, but I think I'd use sausage instead and make my own O'Brien supply to keep in the's so easy to make too! Do you think this would freeze well...or any idea how long it would keep in the fridge. It would be awesome to make up on the weekend to have during the week on those busy days.

What qualifies this recipe to be called a Texas recipe, other than publicity?
