Add the beef and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until browned. Stir in the chipotle sauce, tomatoes and coriander, season with freshly ground black pepper and reduce heat to medium. Cook for a further 5-6 minutes until slightly thickened. Meanwhile, to make the potato hash, place grated potato in a clean tea towel and squeeze to remove excess water.

Repeat with the remaining 1 tbs oil and potato mixture. Using a spoon, make 4 indents in the beef, the crack an egg into each. Cover and cook for 7 minutes or until whites are cooked. Garnish with the chilli and extra coriander, then serve with hash. By then, the Mexican eggs with potato hash is ready
