Crispy Hash Brown Taco Shells

- 1 Whole Egg plus the White from one Egg ( Total 1 ½ Eggs )
- 1 tsp Fajita Season Or your favorite additions Gives some color and depth of flavor
- 3 Green Onions sliced
- 1 tbsp Ancho Chili Powder
- 1 tsp Paprika
- 1 tsp Onion Powder
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- ½ tsp Cumin
- ½ Oregano
- ½ Black Pepper
- In a large mixing bowl add in all of your ingredients, mix the eggs in a smaller bowl before adding.
Shaping the Taco Shells
- I like to use a hamburger shaper ( Seen in the Video ), then flatten them out a bit with your hands making them larger to the point they are shaped how you like them. They will not expand in the oven during the cooking process.
- If you have leftover hash brown mixed, it freezes great for future breakfasts. I personally chip off a little and add it to a pan and cook like normal hash browns. mmm
- Cook at 400 degrees till crispy on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spray with non-cooking spray.
