2 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped

1 medium sweet potato (about 1 pound), chopped

1/2 small red onion, finely chopped 

1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1 teaspoon chili powder

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 

1 11- to 12-ounce Southwest-style chopped salad kit 

2 tablespoons sour cream

Grated zest of 1 lime, plus 1 tablespoon lime juice

4 large eggs

1/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Hot sauce, for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 425˚ F. Put the bacon on a 9-by-13-inch rimmed baking sheet or baking dish and bake until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove to a paper towel–lined plate with a slotted spoon, leaving the drippings on the baking sheet. Add the sweet potato, red onion and bell pepper to the baking sheet and season with the chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper; toss well to coat. Bake until the vegetables are tender and browned, about 18 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice the vegetables from the salad kit and transfer to a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk the dressing from the salad kit with the sour cream and lime juice; set aside. 
  3. Stir the lime zest into the vegetables on the baking sheet and make 4 wells in the mixture; crack 1 egg into each. Bake until the egg whites are almost set, 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle the eggs with the Mexican cheese blend and the shredded cheese from the salad kit. Continue to bake until the cheese melts, 2 more minutes. 
  4. Sprinkle the salad over the hash and drizzle with the dressing mixture. Top with the tortilla strips from the salad kit and the bacon and cilantro. Serve with hot sauce.
