    • Add 1/2 cup of water to potatoes, cover with a lid and cook potatoes until water is all gone and potatoes are tender about 5-7 more minutes.
    • In a separate pan, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.
    • Add ham and jalapenos and cook about 5 minutes.
    • Remove from pan and add eggs that have been slightly beaten and seasoned with remaining seasoning blend. Add 1 cup of cheese to eggs.
    • Cook eggs about 4-5 minutes until scrambled.
    • Heat shells in a clean pan until warmed.
    • Fill shells with potatoes, eggs, ham, and more cheese.

    I used frozen hash brown potatoes that were defrosted at room temperature. If using frozen potatoes that have been defrosted you will not need the 1/2 cup of water.
