Spicy Eggs + Taters Skillet

I am a very outdoorsy girl.

So much so that I plan all of my fall brunch activities around the best patios in the area.

I really branched out this weekend, though. I laid on a hot pink blanket in the middle of a grassy knoll. Me – in the grass!!!!! Essentially, I earned my badge for nature activities.

I laid on that blanket and gabbed with my girlfriends without a care in the world. The sun was shining, folks were running by in their exercise clothes sweating a little too near me, and I had a really cute sweater vest on. It was all good! I told you guys, I really never stop evolving.

But I am hoping this next president can do something about the outdoor smell that lingers on you for hours after a bout with nature.



Time: 1 hour (prep + cooking) | Serves: 3-4


  • 4 small potatoes, scrubbed + chopped (I went with two white + two red)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. of garlic, minced
  • 3 tsp. of ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable broth
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of fresh spinach
  • 2 tbsp. of olive oil
  • S+P, to taste

How to:

  • Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a deep pan over medium heat
  • Add onion + S+P, cook for 4-5 minutes
  • Add garlic, cook another minute
  • Add ancho + tomatoes + vegetable broth, simmer for 15 minutes
  • Transfer to a blender + puree, set aside
  • Heat remaining olive oil in same pan
  • Add potatoes + remaining ancho + S+P
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes or until crisp to your desire
  • Add sauce back to pan + cook another 10 minutes
  • Stir in spinach + S+P
  • Make holes for eggs + turn the heat to low
  • Crack each egg in + cover, cook for 8 minutes
  • Remove from heat + cook another 3-4 minutes or until eggs are set to your liking
  • Rub hands in leftovers + finger paint a picture of a pal on a nearby blank wall


Idea came from here!
