I had this 1st time when I was only 13. It has stuck in my head ever since & I love making this dish for my family. My daughter grew up eating this & now my grand children. They never leave food on their plate when this tasty dish is made. You can use ANY meat for this recipe. I love making it with either Chicken breast, Turkey chunks or with Pork. To make it more a Breakfast or Brunch style dish. Use smoked sausage or Kielbasa in place of chicken, Turkey or pork. You can also add scrambled eggs for extra protein & filling. Any way you make it.. it's going to be delicious.

How To Make south western hash/stir fry

  • If you do not have regular sweet corn, you can substitute & use creamed corn. It still cooks up the same, with the same great taste at the end.
    If short on time you can for a quicker method add all ingredients other then the meat and combine to blend equally. Over a medium to medium high heat in a Large chicken fryer skillet add 4 Tbsp Canola Oil. Add the minced Onions, Green Peppers, Garlic & Ginger. Cover with lid to help with the sweating process & allow veggies to steam more then fry. Saute long enough to sweat them out 1/2 way done. Add Corn, Black beans, Summer squash, Zucchini. Easily stir all items together to ensure all is blended well. Place lid over Fryer & allow all veggies to sweat together till consistency of a well steamed veggie consistency. Make sure to stir every 5 minutes to insure no sticking as well as to make sure veggies do not over cook and mush up.

    In another skillet brown to just done the chicken, turkey, pork Or the sausage. Add the meat of your choice, all meats are optional. Or you can combine different meats or all meats. Measure the meats according to measurements given to equally measure to the original recipe per meat type. While there will be some moisture in the fryer add the corn meal and combine well. Mixture will become thickened, to a consistency or a hash. If making as a hash, allow the corn meal to brown some for that delicious caramelized crisp taste. Make sure to NOT over brown it. If you wish to make as a stir fry omit the corn meal. Do NOT allow to brown or over cook.
  • This is my own Signature Dish I make Especially During The Summer & Fall When The Farmers Market Are Available. Nothing better Then Using Fresh Veggies Straight From The Garden!
    In another fry pan scramble eggs to add to the Hash/ Stir Fry when dish is just ready to serve. Combine well to make sure there is a individual taste to every bite.
