How to make the Southwest Breakfast:

Spray your cast iron skillet with cooking spray, heating it to medium to high temp.

Add the bacon, garlic, peppers and fry until crisp, remove the mix and place to the side.

While the bacon is cooling, pour off some of the bacon grease leaving enough to fry the hash brown potatoes on medium to high heat.

Once almost cooked add you bacon pepper mix and fold to combine.

Make four pockets and crack one egg into each one.

Top with the shredded cheese allowing the eggs to cook completely and the cheese to slightly melt.

Cover to throughly cook the egg to desired doneness.

If desired add the diced jalapeno pepper on top for garnish.

Serve with salsa and or sour cream as desired.
