This Mexican inspired potato and kidney bean hash is packed full of vegetables and legumes making it really satisfying in terms of not only flavour but how satiated it will leave you feeling. This is fairly quick to make and will take you less than thirty minutes, making it the perfect weeknight dinner or weekend brunch.

It reheats well meaning it is a fast and purse friendly option to make in bulk if you were looking for meal prepping ideas. It is also a great option to help fight food waste as you can add or subtract vegetables as necessary in order to use up anything you have that needs eating.

I first began making this dish when I stopped eating meat in 2018, however, I wasn’t vegan so would still top it with a poached egg and a sprinkle of feta. Now I usually have it with half an avocado instead which is a really nice addition as the creaminess is a lovely contrast to the spicy flavours.

I normally use one chilli in this, however, you can use more or less if preferred. Alternatively you could use cayenne powder or chilli powder for convenience if you don’t have any fresh.
