Tom's Hot and Spicy Home Fries

On a rare occasion, I get a delicious breakfast prepared by my husband Tom. He is really great cook and has a lot more patience than I do when it comes to cooking. He recently made me these awesome home fries with eggs and bacon...yum! They were very hot and spicy! I have added options to tone down the spice level for this recipe. Hope you enjoy.

Tom's Spicy Home Fries
Serves 4

Olive oil
4 Yukon Gold potatoes-1/2' dice
1 bell pepper-chopped
1/2 onion-chopped
1 jalapeno-diced (you can use 1/2 a jalapeno to reduce heat or leave it out)
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (use 1/2 tsp to reduce heat)
Salt and pepper-to taste
1 tsp paprika

1. Coat the bottom of a non-stick skillet with olive oil and heat to medium-high. Add in diced potatoes and cook until slightly golden brown; stirring frequently; about 10 minutes. (Do not rush this step)

2. Once the potatoes are golden brown, add in pepper, jalapeno and onion and cook until softened; 8 minutes. (Add more oil if necessary) Season with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes and paprika.

3. Turn the heat to medium-low and continue to cook; stirring frequently, until potatoes are cook through and they have a nice crispy exterior. Re-season to taste.
