  • Place bacon in a cold, oven-safe cast iron skillet in a single layer. Turn stove on to medium.
  • Cook bacon until crispy. Remove bacon from pan, but leave the bacon grease.
  • Crumble bacon and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, cook the potatoes in the bacon grease for five minutes until they start to soften.
  • Add in the green pepper, red pepper, onion, and seasonings: chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook until all the veggies are tender, about 7-10 more minutes.
  • While veggies are cooking, preheat oven to 400º F.
  • Once veggies are done cooking, stir in crumbled bacon and Jalapeno & Habanero Jack cheese.
  • Season with more salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Then, using the back of a spoon, make 3-4 shallow indents into the hash.
  • Crack an egg into each indent.
  • Place skillet in oven and bake until the egg whites set, about 10-15 minutes, until desired doneness is reached.
  • Top with optional toppings and serve!
