One-Pan Mexican Breakfast Hash {AIP, Whole30, Keto}

One-Pan meals are the best, don’t you agree? There is something so comforting in their tradition, and clean up is way easier to bear. Plus, when you cook an entire dish in one pan, you really build a lot of flavor layers. You know, flavor layers. Is that even a term? If not, I call it! Anyways, this One-Pan Mexican Breakfast Hash is something we make all the time at home, and figure fellow one-pan cooking fans would also enjoy it. It is nothing fancy per-se, but it has flavor, simplicity, and most importantly, plenty of nutrients.

This isn’t the first time you have seen one-pan cooking from us, so clearly we love it too. Our Paleofied Sloppy Joes are a house favorite (though I still need to create them AIP-style), our Leftover Meat Hash is often prepared in our house throughout the summer, and let’s not forget the hearty comforting (and surprisingly vegetarian) Rustic Ratatouille.

One of the keys to one-pan cooking is investing in a really good pan. Not surprisingly this makes a big difference. Everyone has their loves, and we have 3 that we use around the clock. Of course we have other pans, but they are only pulled out absolutely necessarily. I can tell you we make 90% of our food in these 3 pans.

And what we make in each pan varies as well, since they all serve specific purposes. Here are our favorite pans, along with what we use them for.


This old school Lodge fry pan is what is used in this hash recipe, and seen in most of our one-pan meals. We use this for everything from browning meat, making pancakes, braising smaller quantities of vegetables or meat, to baking rustic desserts.

The best part of this beauty is that the more you use it, the better it serves you. The “seasoning” that builds up in the pan only come with age, and like a fine wine, it only gets better with age.  You do need to care for this pan, and I would suggest following the care instructions closely.

These pans are such a bargain and will be your best friend. We also have this mini one for frying eggs and single-serving items.


This big boy is best for stews, soups, braising, and quantity cooking. Our Rustic Ratatouille is made in our favorite enameled cast iron dutch oven, and we also do tons of batch and bulk cooking with it.

While this is made from cast iron, the clean up and maintenance is a breeze considering it is coated. This is another piece that will literally last several lifetimes, so it is well worth your investment.


Last but not least, a large high-sided skillet is our final essential pan. We use this one for frying/sauté as it makes less of a mess, for making sauces (especially those with citrus which can damage cast iron), and this also works great for braising.

As always, avoid non-stick pans when possible, and opt for stainless steel like this All Clad Stainless 3 Quart we have and love.

Now that you have your essential cooking pans covered, you need to get on making this hash. We love it for breakfast, but it will honestly work any time of the day. Wonderful as a weeknight dinner as well, and it also happens to make great leftovers.

And leftovers are where it’s at, friends. We think few things are better than recreating them into entirely new meals. Here are our favorite uses for reusing your One-Pan Mexican Breakfast Hash:

  • Taco Salad. Toss leftover hash onto some fresh romaine, butter, or iceberg, add a lime-cilantro dressing, and boom. Tasty lunch in no time.
  • Traditional tacos, using the hash as your main filling, add toppings to taste, and wrap it all up in tortillas or lettuce wraps of your choice.
  • Stuffed squash. Roast a whole acorn squash, scoop out the tender filling, and mix with leftover hash. Add everything back to the hallowed out squash boats, and bake until warm.
