Spanish Hash for Dinner

Sometimes I just like to look through the pantry and refrigerator and make something from whatever I have on hand. This evening I made up a recipe which turned out really tasty and delicious. I'm not sure what to call it but for now I'll call it Spanish Hash.

Here is how I made it... Drizzle some olive oil in skillet and saute the chopped garlic and onion
Cut the kernels off a fresh ear of corn. Chop one peeled, cooked sweet potato into cubes. (I cooked my sweet potato by wrapping it in a wet paper towel and microwaving it for 5 minutes.)

Add the corn to the skillet and cook for a minute or so. Add the cooked brown rice and stir around for another minute or so.
The add the cubed sweet potato.

Next add some leftover cooked, meat chopped in small pieces (I used pork tenderloin leftovers).

Grab a bunch of cilantro and chop it up.
Add the cilantro the skillet and stir. I love the smell of freshly chopped cilantro!Now for some seasoning. Sprinkle in some seasoned salt, cumin and a little garlic powder to taste.Serve and enjoy!

That looks great! It always seems like my best week-night dinners are the ones I end up throwing together with whatever I have on hand.
