  • 1/4 Cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large russet potatoes 10 to 12 ounces each, peeled or unpeeled, small chopped. Or use 3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 clove clove minced
  • 4 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 4 8" flour tortillas warmed
  • 8 slices bacon cooked until crisp
  • 3-4 cups prepared Hatch Green Chili warmed
  • 8 ounces mild cheddar cheese grated


  • Warm oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Stir in potatoes, salt, and as much pepper as you wish. Cook stirring frequently until potatoes are browning, about 10 minutes.
  • Add onion and garlic and cook for another 5 minutes or until potatoes are golden brown. If you're using cubed potatoes, smash some of them with a potato masher.
  • Place the eggs in a bowl and whip them a few times with a fork or whisk. Pour eggs over potatoes and scrape mixture up and down another couple of times to distribute. Don't overcook the eggs. Cook just until they still look wet. Keep in mind, they'll continue cooking once removed from the heat. And they're going to the oven once they're in the burrito for a few minutes.
  • To make the burritos, spoon a heaping 1/3 cup of potato egg mixture onto a warmed tortilla. Top with 2 slices of bacon. Roll up into a loose cylinder and place burrito seam side down on a heatproof plate.
  • Spoon 1⁄2 - 1 cup of warm Hatch Green Chili or Hatch Green Chile Sauce over burrito and sprinkle it generously with cheese.
  • Bake burritos until cheese is melted and gooey, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.


You can use frozen hash browns for this recipe.
