- Heat a large skillet with the first part of oil over high heat. Add potatoes to heated oil and saute until outsides are golden brown and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. (A golden crust on the potatoes will add great flavor to the finished dish.) Set potatoes aside and return skillet to heat.
- To heated skillet, add second part of oil and then bell peppers, onions and white parts of green onions. Saute until vegetables are soft, 4 to 5 minutes.
- Add paprika and coriander and saute until fragrant, ~1 minute more.
- Reduce heat to low-medium. Add potatoes back to the pan with beans and continue cooking until beans are heated through.
- While hash finishes cooking, place a nonstick pan over medium heat and add third part of oil. Crack eggs into oil and fry to desired done-ness (cook on one side for sunny-side up or flip and cook on both sides).
- Squeeze lime juice over hash and season with some salt and pepper.
- Top hash with avocado slices and fried eggs. Add green parts of green onions and hot sauce (if you’d like) and enjoy!
