A lot of my lunches therefore are hot but thrown together since I don’t have as much time as I do for dinner. In other words, not pretty food. But a lot of them are awfully tasty, so if I am comfortable around you, chances are if you are over at lunch you will eventually get fed one of these thrown together in a skillet type meals.
This hash is one of my fallback lunches–quick, easy and delicious. The slaw is about to become one of my fallback slaws–also quick, easy and delicious. The refreshing crunch of the slaw is the perfect complement to the creamy, spicy and smoky sweet potatoes and black beans.
Southwestern Sweet Potato Hash
2 medium-large onions, chopped
6-8 cloves garlic, minced
red wine vinegar and orange juice, you will only need a splash
1 T cumin
2 t ancho powder
1/2 t sweet smoked paprika
dash (or to heat tolerance) chipotle powder
3 sweet potatoes, cubed (leave the skins on)
1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups frozen corn (I strongly prefer organic)
shredded cheddar cheese
shredded monterey jack cheese
Adapted from Bon Appétit
1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/3 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
1/5 cup canola oil or vegetable oil
2 (8-ounce) bags coleslaw mix
4 ears of fresh corn, shucked, kernels cut from cob (I used one 16 oz bag frozen)
2 medium carrots, peeled, coarsely grated (I used a few handfuls of shredded carrots)
2 sweet bell peppers, stemmed, cored, cut into thin strips
6 medium green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Whisk orange juice concentrate, rice vinegar, and canola oil in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. I made mine at least 30 minutes ahead to let the flavors meld; it can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.
Laura! You’ve been a busy girl lately! I love seeing you posting more! The hash and slaw both look terrific!
I heard from our soldier’s wife today and I have a picture of him with the Clarkson Flag – It is on my computer at work so tomorrow I will email all the ladies who participated with the photo!

I like coleslaw, but I like twists on coleslaw even better.
