Every Breakfast Needs a Taco!
Similar to Breakfast Burritos, Breakfast Tacos are just that, tacos filled with breakfast fillings. And who doesn’t love a good egg? Especially one covered and smothered in salsa and cheese? Mmmmmm…..these Breakfast Tacos are so fabulous, it hurts. And it kills me how easy and fast they are. Start to finish these are maybe 15 minutes if that. It really helps if you have a flat top electrical griddle, especially if you have more than 3 mouths to feed. Having them all ready and warm at once allows everyone to eat together and not have to deal with a gross cold egg. Eeww.
Main Ingredients Needed
Simple ingredients come together to create these fabulous Breakfast Tacos, here’s what you’ll need:
- Tortillas – I used the street taco size flour tortillas for this recipe. They are the perfect size and crisp up so nicely.
- Hash Browns – I just used frozen store-bought hashbrowns but you can always make them homemade if you want.
- Eggs – these are a great source of protein!
- Cheese – I like using sharp cheddar for a bit of extra flavor.
- Salsa – buy store-bought or make homemade salsa.
- Cilantro – this garnish is full of great flavor. But if you don’t like cilantro, leave it out.
And now for all of the customization ideas! I love this breakfast tacos recipe because you can change it up based on what you have on hand. Leftover chicken or steak? Perfect! Add that in, too! Deli turkey or ham also is a great addition. If you have any more ideas, feel free to share them in the comments below 🙂
- Protein: eggs, bacon, breakfast sausage, eggs, ham, leftover steak, leftover chicken, chorizo, lunch meat.
- Veggies: onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, avocado, corn, cilantro. Saute these separately or in with the scrambled eggs.
- Sauces: sour cream, guacamole, salsa, hot sauce.
- Cheese: cheddar, Monterey Jack, mozzarella, pepper jack.
- Carbs: flour tortillas, corn tortillas, hash browns, black beans, rice.
