1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped cooked and peeled sweet potatoes

2 1/2 cups shredded cooked turkey

1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth

3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, plus whole leaves for garnish

1 teaspoon minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 large egg white

12 medium yellow onion, grated

1/2 cup queso fresco or farmer's cheese, crumbled (2 ounces)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper [2 teaspoons]

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 scallion, thinly sliced

Chipotle Cranberry Sauce: (optional)

23 cup canned whole-berry cranberry sauce

12 teaspoon minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

12 teaspoon lime juice

14 teaspoon lime zest

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. For the Hash: Mash 1 cup of the sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Then stir in the turkey, chicken broth, cilantro, chipotles in adobo, garlic, egg white, 1/4 cup of the cheese, the remaining 1/2 cup chopped sweet potatoes, 2 teaspoons of salt and a few grinds of pepper.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter and 1/2 teaspoon of the coriander in an ovenproof 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the potato mixture and spread it evenly in the skillet, pressing lightly to form a solid cake. Cook, shaking the skillet occasionally, until the bottom is set, about 3 minutes.
  4. Put a large plate over the skillet and invert so the hash falls onto the plate. Return the skillet to the heat and melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter with the remaining 12 teaspoon coriander. Slide the hash back into the skillet cooked side up (if it breaks apart, simply reshape it into a solid cake). Cook, shaking the skillet occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  5. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake the hash until firm, about 10 minutes. Carefully invert or slide the hash onto a serving plate and scatter the remaining 14 cup cheese, the cilantro leaves, and the scallion over the top.
  6. Serve with Chipotle Cranberry Sauce (See Below) if using.

Chipotle Cranberry Sauce: (optional)

  1. For Cranberry Sauce: Whisk together the cranberry sauce, chiles, lime juice and lime zest in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
