Breakfast Tacos – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Tacos are one of my favorite things to eat.  I love them stuffed with chicken, fish, beef, potatoes & cheese and of course carnitas.  Tacos to me are the perfect portable food because you can eat them standing up, driving in a car or sitting down with friends at a table.  It’s probably the food I crave the most.

While in Austin Texas last year, we enjoyed a few breakfast tacos.  These egg, cheese and potato filled tortillas were a bite of warm heaven all rolled up into one.  The presentation was simple, mostly served in a piece of aluminum foil on a plate, but it didn’t matter – they sure tasted good.

I can see myself eating breakfast tacos for any meal, not just in the wee morning hours of the day.  These tacos are a quick prep and most of us, if you are a Mexican food fan, have the ingredients already in your refrigerator and pantry.

The combination of eggs, potatoes, green chilies, and cheese bring joy to my taste buds and it’s something I now make quite often for me and my family.  I hope you fall in love with these tacos like I have.

To Prepare:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and cream, set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add 2 teaspoons oil and potatoes.  Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add shallot and stir.  Continue to cook for 2 minutes, until lightly brown.
  3. Make a well in the center of potatoes and pour in eggs.  Gently whisk eggs until they just begin to come together, about 1 minute.  Add chilies and fold into eggs and potatoes.  Turn heat off.
  4. Sprinkle half of cheese over egg mixture and stir.  Let eggs rest while you toast tortillas over an open flame or under broiler.
  5. Spoon egg mixture into tortillas and sprinkle with remaining cheese and fresh cilantro.  Dash with hot sauce.  Enjoy!
