Paleo Chorizo Hash with Kale and Butternut Squash

Oooh, it's been getting chilly here in the High Desert and that makes me crave hearty meals like stews and roasts.  I've been seeing lots of hash recipes for Thanksgiving leftovers but since I do paleo and we spend Thanksgiving at Disneyland, I decided to do a different take on hash with this chorizo: Paleo Chorizo Hash with Butternut Squash and Kale.


Paleo Chorizo Hash with Butternut Squash and Kale

My mouth literally waters as I think about this dish, It has a spicy kick but such depth of flavor from the chorizo … mmm! We had no leftovers so I guess we will have to make it a second and third and fourth time. Darn. *wink wink*


Rather than use potatoes for this chorizo hash, we decided to go with a fall butternut squash which has less starch than a potato. We bought pre-cubed squash but you can cut it up yourself if you like. We added kale for a bit of color and crunch as well as a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce for a spicy kick. If you don't like spicy food, skip the pepper but honestly, that pepper paired with the spanish style chorizo is part of what makes this dish so good.


This chorizo hash recipe is great for a hearty dinner or as a breakfast dish, topped with a fried or poached egg. Here's how to make it:

We served this Paleo Chorizo Hash with a side of Cilantro Pesto Rice. Rice isn't very paleo but Xaver loves it. This rice is a take on Mexican Rice but with cilantro pesto instead of the traditional tomato sauce. I'll be sharing the recipe for this delicious side dish soon!
