Western Hash

Believe it or not, I originally heard this recipe on a television commercial! That was many years ago, and I still make this hash often. Try it with some corn bread or corn chips on the side.—Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas

    One of our favorites. Easy, quick, and left overs are great.

    I agree with the other comment that there isn't enough liquid to cook a cup of rice. I ended up adding a cup or so of leftover cooked rice instead and that worked out fine.

    I live at an elevation of 6200 ft There isn't enough fluid to cook a cup of rice. I'm going to try to modify the recipe as I like all the ingredients
