Directions
For the Texas Chicken Hash:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Season the chicken with garlic powder, chili powder, and black pepper. Put into a roasting pan and cover with foil. Roast the chicken until cooked through, about 45 minutes. Remove to a cutting board and chop.

  • Add the potatoes and 1/2 stick of butter to a medium skillet and saute until tender. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the green bell peppers and onions to the pan and saute until soft but not mushy!

  • Heat a deep-fryer with oil and fry the tortillas until crispy. Transfer the tortillas to paper towels to drain.

  • In a large saucepan add the flour and the remaining 1/2 stick of butter and cook the flour for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly add the milk and cook until slightly thick. Add the chopped red bell peppers and the habenero. Stir in the grated cheese and cook until melted.

  • Coat a large fry pan with oil and add the eggs. Cook the eggs sunny side up.

  • In a large pot over low heat, add the potatoes, bell pepper mixture and the chopped chicken. Season with Tony Chachere's seasoning, to taste. Stir the potato mixture until heated through.

  • Put 4 tortillas on a plate in stacks of 2. Spoon some of the chicken mixture on top of both stacks. Top each stack with 1 sunny side up egg and drizzle with the cheese sauce, to taste. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas, eggs and cheese. Garnish each plate with avocado and tomato slices.

  • Serve immediately.
