Chorizo and Sweet Potato Hash

Now normally we take great pride in giving you delicious and healthy meals because we all need to be watching our weight. But every once in a while we sneak in one of our favorite guilty pleasures because we also know how important it is to have an occasional cheat meal to keep your diet on track. This is one of those meals.

We love the flavor of Chorizo sausage and it certainly gives this dish a kick (if you want a lower fat meal then you can substitute the Turkey Sausage for the Chorizo). For this dish I precooked the sweet potatoes in the microwave but you could also parboil them so that they cook through when added to the sausage. This was a very quick and easy meal to put together with only 3 main ingredients, a little oil and some spice.

I am going to skip the usually good ingredients and whats bad for you in this meal. It's a cheat meal enjoy it and get back on your diet tomorrow!
