This Mexican breakfast hash is paleo, whole30, gluten-free and SO delicious and filling. It’s packed with protein and veggies too.

Unlike my husband, I need some variety with my breakfasts. I don’t want the same thing every morning. My favorite thing is to actually look up breakfast and brunch menus at cool restaurants and recreate the recipes at home.

This recipe was born mostly out of boredom with scrambled eggs. And craving tacos for breakfast. But I don’t love egg tacos, so here ya go.

Health benefits of this Mexican Breakfast Hash:

  • it’s Whole30, paleo, gluten-free and keto if you omit the potoato
  • contains six different veggies, which is great for beneficial gut bacteria
  • contains roughly 25g protein
  • rich in healthy fats
  • contains b12, iron, zinc, choline, selenium, biotin and a variety of b vitamins
  • rich in antioxidants from plant foods
  • grass-fed ground beef is high in omega-3s and great for the earth


  • feel free to mix up the spices and use taco season, chili powder, whatever you like
  • you can use any color bell pepper
  • add spinach to make it even healthier, which I meant to do but forgot
  • prep at night to have in the morning
