1 1/2cupsshredded potatoes(any excess water removed with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel)
For the Poached Eggs
Cook the chorizo in a medium pan over medium-heat, stirring and breaking up until crisp and cooked through. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain off any excess grease.
To prepare the chipotle hollandaise:
Add the egg yolks, lime juice, and chipotles to a blender and blend for 4 minutes until well combined.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in the microwave.
With the blender running, slowly pour the butter in, and blend until it starts to emulsify and thicken.
Taste and season with salt, if needed.
To prepare the hash brown waffles:
Spray waffle iron with cooking spay and begin heat.
In a medium bowl, combine shredded potatoes, salt and pepper and mix.
Add a heaping 1/4 cup of the potato mixture to the waffle iron* and cook until golden brown and crisp. Repeat with remaining shredded potatoes.
To poach the eggs
Fill a deep skillet or stock pot with enough water to just cover the eggs when added (2-3" of water) and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat so that it's at a gentle simmer. You don't want it boiling and creating too much turbulence.
Crack eggs, one at a time, into a small bowl, ramekin, or even a ladle. The smaller receptacle will help keep the egg from spreading out as much as if you dropped it directly into the water.
Add the vinegar to the water. This will help to keep the egg whites close to the yolk - less spreading is what you want!
Gently pour or lower the eggs into the water, one at a time and do not crowd them together. Use a spoon to gently move and turn them around in the water, keeping the whites somewhat contained.
Cook the eggs for approximately 2 minutes. This will ensure the egg whites are cooked, but the yolk is still good and runny. Keep an eye on them, you may even want to pull them out at 1 minute 45 seconds.
Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
On each plate, place one hash brown waffle and top with about ¼-cup of chorizo, a few slices of avocado, and a poached egg. Spoon chipotle hollandaise over the top, and add a few jalapeno slices, if you like!
*If you don't have a waffle iron, you can just cook the hash browns in a skillet. Just shape into little "patties" and cook until crisp and browned before gently flipping and repeating on other side. Then gently remove to plates to assemble.
