Ingredients for Breakfast Tacos

EGGS We use whole eggs in this recipe but carton egg whites or even egg substitutes will work too if that’s what you prefer!

MEAT Bacon slices are added to this recipe, but you could also use chorizo, pork sausage or leftover ham!

CHEESE Sharp cheddar is my favorite, but any cheese will work great. Try Mozza, Monterey Jack, or crumbled cotija!

TORTILLAS Warm corn or flour tortillas are used to wrap up all those eggs, cheese & bacon into a taco!


Add-ins: Diced veggies, tomatoes, refried beans or black beans, cooked hashbrowns or potatoes.

Toppings: Hot sauce, chopped avocados, cilantro, tomato salsa or Pico de Gallo, diced onions, or even queso.

How to Make Breakfast Tacos

One of the reasons why breakfast tacos are so popular is because they are so easy to make!

  1. Keep corn or flour tortillas warm in aluminum foil.
  2. Cook eggs until they are just barely cooked, and still shiny. Top with cheese.
  3. Top with your favorite toppings like bacon and green onion.
