  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Add paprika and coriander and saute until fragrant, ~1 minute more.
  4. Reduce heat to low-medium. Add potatoes back to the pan with beans and continue cooking until beans are heated through.
  5. 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).
  6. Squeeze lime juice over hash and season with some salt and pepper.
  7. Top hash with avocado slices and fried eggs. Add green parts of green onions and hot sauce (if you’d like) and enjoy!
