What is in breakfast tacos?
Breakfast tacos are the go to here in Texas. When our family comes to visit there’s two things they want to get their hands on. Smoked Brisket. And some breakfast tacos. The best breakfast tacos are the simplest.
Warm tortillas filled with soft scrambled eggs, crisp bacon and potatoes are my favorite. Then the toppings take things over the top. Tons of cilantro, fresh tomatoes, some homemade salsa and lots of cheese.
Some other popular fillings would include sausage or chorizo.
How do you make breakfast tacos?
These breakfast tacos are super simple to put together. We just have to cook all the individual parts. But they all come together easily with little fuss or prep needed. To save time with the potatoes pre-cut and frozen potatoes work well. And while cooking the potatoes and the bacon the eggs can be scrambled.
Also, make sure the tortillas are heated! Flour tortillas are best for breakfast tacos. Just spray a large pan with non stick spray and toss the tortillas in and let them heat and crisp prior to adding the filling.
