A potato hash may be an anything-goes sort of meal, but we think we’ve nailed it with our highly specific and precise combination of flavors. There’s the candy-like allure of sweet potatoes, the smokiness of bacon, the creaminess of avocado, and the grassiness and mild heat of poblano peppers. In other words, it’s an equation with contrasting but complementary elements that add up to something amazing.
