Leftover Southwestern Turkey Hash

I am cursed with an ability to wake up at the crack of dawn no matter the day, today that time was 7:45 AM (late for me!). Getting up this early means I have plenty of time for breakfast on the weekends, today it gave me plenty of time to use some leftover turkey.

**Southwestern Turkey Hash**
1/2 C Diced Sweet Onion
6 Small Red Potatoes, sliced in thin rounds
1 Yellow Bell Pepper, Sliced
1 C Quartered Grape Tomatoes
2 C Turkey, I just run though and quick chop this
1/2 C Cilantro
1 Pickled Jalapeno, chopped
Cheddar Cheese to sprinkle over the top (about 1/2 C)
Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning to taste

(If you're not a big fan of hot, leave out the jalapeno and be sparing with the Cajun seasoning)

1. Heat large pan with oil in it (enough to cover the bottom of the pan) over medium high heat. Once skillet is hot, saute onion and potato until potato begins to brown around the edges, stir so that it browns on both sides. Season with Cajun seasoning.

2. Once potato is ready, drop turkey into skillet, saute about one minute. After a minute, drop in bell pepper.

3. Add chopped jalapeno and tomato, saute another two minutes. Turn off heat, sprinkle cheese and cilantro over top and serve!

Keep some cold turkey for some great sandwiches (or bento!)

I love corn beef hash, so why not turkey! Oh and I like the photo shot...

I am curious and not very technology savvy but how did you get all those photos into one? I want to blog like that, instead of a million shots I post!

I used the 'collage' function on Picasa - it's really easy and it's kind of neat looking when you're done!

That sounds wonderful! (And waking up early is a blessing, I can hardly drag myself out of bed in the morning!)

Thanks Joie de vivre, sometimes rising early isn't so bad, I can agree :)
