Mexican Breakfast Tacos
These Mexican Breakfast Tacos are the perfect healthy morning meal for on-the-go. They’re so easy, delicious and can be made gluten free and vegetarian to please the whole family!
I love breakfast and I love tacos, so why not combine the two? Breakfast + Tacos = Major deliciousness!! I’m not sure why it took me so long to give the breakfast taco a try, but I guarantee this definitely won’t be the last time I cook these babies up! The whole family was pretty smitten.
Finding a recipe the whole family enjoys – winning!! With three picky kiddos, that doesn’t happen very often, so when it does you better believe I take advantage of it. And not only does everyone gobble these up, they could not be easier. It will take you under 30 minutes to make a satisfying breakfast for four. And if you have even more mouths to feed, just simply add another slice of bacon and more eggs. Another plus, all of the ingredients are super simple and things you probably already have on hand.
This recipe is really versatile too. You can try using sausage in place of the bacon and give this morning meal a nutrient boost by adding chopped spinach, bell pepper and/or onion to the eggs. As for toppings, for all of you avocado lovers, guacamole is a must and I love salsa with my eggs, but black beans and pico would be tasty too. So many variations!
I used a Mexican-style cheese for my tacos, which added so much flavor. I was sure to use a cheese product that included the Real California Milk seal. I’m super excited to partner with Real California Milk for a very special program! From now until December 31, 2017, spot the Seal for Good and share your photos with #SealsforGood of the Real California Milk seal to help the families affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey in Florida and Texas who need it most. For every submission, Real California Milk will donate $5 to the Great American Milk Drive (up to $20,000) to help families affected by the hurricanes. No purchase necessary. You can learn more about this here.
If you happen to be a fan of breakfast (like me!) and you LOVE tacos (like me!) you’ve got to make these happen! Be sure to show me your Mexican Breakfast Tacos on Instagram by tagging #kimscravings. It’s so fun to see what you’re cooking up! Happy breakfasting, friends!
The perfect healthy morning meal for on-the-go. They're so easy, delicious and can be made gluten free and vegetarian to please the whole family!
- 4 slices of bacon or turkey bacon, chopped
- 2 eggs
- 4 egg whites or 2 additional eggs (1/2 cup liquid egg whites from a carton)
- 1/4 cup shredded Mexican cheese* (I used Queso Fresco)
- 1/4 teaspoon taco seasoning
- 4 to tortillas/wraps**
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Salsa, guacamole, additional cheese for topping
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Cook chopped bacon until desired doneness. Drain and dispose of excess bacon grease.
To same skillet with bacon, add eggs, egg whites, shredded cheese (if using), taco seasoning, and salt and pepper, if desired. Scramble the eggs until they are cooked to your liking.
Meanwhile, warm tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds each (if desired), and divide scrambled eggs over each tortilla. Top with salsa, guacamole and additional cheese and wrap up!
Serve immediately, or wrap each tortilla in foil once they have cooled, and keep in the refrigerator for a breakfast that is ready when you are! (Note: if you are making these in advance for the week, I would recommend adding the toppings just before eating so your tortilla doesn't get soggy.)
*Can be eliminated, if you're looking to save calories or are following a dairy free diet. **I use low carb or whole grain wraps. Use gluten free as needed. Other alternatives are corn or flour tortillas.
