Adobo sauce adds so much extra flavor that you won't even miss the smaller amounts of butter and egg yolks in this smoky hash. Here's a tip: Add a splash of white vinegar to the poaching water right before you drop in the eggs. It helps keep them from separating as they cook. —Brooke Keller, Lexington, Kentucky

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds), cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced, optional
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Place sweet potatoes, onion and red pepper in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with seasonings. Toss to coat. Roast 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender, adding beans during the last 10 minutes of cooking time.
  2. Place 2-3 in. of water in a large saucepan or skillet with high sides. Bring to a boil; adjust heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Break cold eggs, 1 at a time, into a small bowl; holding bowl close to surface of water, slip each egg into water.
  3. Cook, uncovered, 3-5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Using a slotted spoon, lift eggs out of water.
  4. In a small bowl, mix sour cream, lime juice and adobo sauce. Divide sweet potato mixture among 4 bowls; top each with an egg, sour cream mixture and, if desired, avocado. Sprinkle with cilantro.
