HASH BROWNS LOADED WITH RAJAS HAVE ARRIVED!  Yes, They are so fricken delicious I can eat them day and night.  None of this would be possible without my beloved Idaho Potato.  I have totally ruined the regular hash brown for my family, claiming they will never go back to the old days of having them served plain.  Watch the video to see just how easy they are to make… I promise.  Also just a side note they are vegan and gluten free but beyond delicious for everyone to enjoy.

  • 1 – pasilla chile
  • 2 – idaho potatoes

  2. Place in an airtight ziplock or container for an hour to stem in it’s own heat.
  3. Carefully peel charred skin away from chile under running water.

  5. Peel idaho potatoes, then grate them.
