This recipe features one of my all-time favorite vegetables: the sweet potato. The tanginess of the feta (the Greek part) is a strange but tasty complement to the smoky, spicy chipotle chili powder (the cowboy part). This meal is great for brunch and simple to scale down for a quick dinner when you're cooking for yourself.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the potatoes in the heated oil until they begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic; continue cooking until the onions sweat and begin to caramelize. Season with chipotle chile powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper; stir. Transfer to a bowl and cover with a plate to retain the heat.

  • Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into the skillet and return to medium heat. Crack the eggs into the heated oil and cook until they begin to turn opaque; flip and continue cooking until no clear white remains. (Don't overcook the eggs -- the best part of this meal is the smoothness that the yolk adds to the mix). Place the cooked eggs atop the potato mixture. Top with cilantro, feta cheese, and avocado to serve.

OMG! This is incredible. Followed the recipe except I did not have the cheese or avacado the first time I made it. I have made it many times since and it is one of our fav's. Spicy goodness will really wake you up in the morning. Read More

AMAZING!!! I made it for my family (hubby & 7 little kids) & they all loved it! I actually kept the ingredients separated so the kids could decide if they wanted to layer according to the recipe or keep things separated. It was a huge hit! Thank you! Read More

Really Really good! The Chipolte chili powder was a lot hotter than I expected so you might want to adjust if you are sensitive. Great mix of favors! Read More

I substituted a few things - red potatoes for sweet Parmesan for feta paprika for cumin no avocado. I have not doubt it's just as awesome how it's listed however. It's a hearty meal and very tasty; however I don't recommend it if you're already close to dying of a heart attack. Read More

Added ground lamb to make it a little hearty and wow!! We will definitely make this again! Nothing like a little spice to wake you up in the morning! Browned ground lamb ahead of time and added after the spices were added. Really made this recipe incredible! Read More

It was really good! The flavours were great together. I didn't give it 5 stars because I didn't follow the exact recipe so I cannot give a complete review. I mixed the egg in with the sweet potato mix after the onions were softened, and ate it like that with the avocado and cheese on top Read More

Great flavor! The only change: I used Garam Masala to season the sweet potatoes; didn t add the other seasonings except salt and pepper to the eggs when I fried them. The flavors blended well! Hubs loved it! Read More
