This Southwestern Beef Hash is a quick and healthy meal for busy days. It is a quick cooking mixture of meat and potatoes. You can add any extra leftover vegetables that you might have on hand for a one-dish meal. thebusinessdays

This recipe uses lean ground beef, but you can also use leftover roast beef or chicken that you might have on hand. Using leftovers reduces cooking times even more and helps control the food budget, an added benefit in the current economy. sportsyearly

Leftover baked, roasted, or boiled potatoes can be used instead of the Potatoes Obrien, but you may need to adjust the seasoning a little. You can even use leftover cooked rice or corn instead of the potatoes. This is a very versatile recipe that can help save you hours in the kitchen. bareng88

I like to add a little cheese on top at the very end. Serve with tortilla chips or warm soft tortillas and maybe a green salad.
