Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast Tacos are one of those meals that give you 100% creative freedom. I actually wish that in my former (or future) life, I created a breakfast taco food truck offering a sort of buffet style, where you could choose your own toppings and quantities.

It’s one of those things that by the end of it, shows the kind of person you are. Are you the I’m-going-to-stuff-everything-possible-into-this-taco person? Or are you Houston-Style-Ingredients-Only person or are you this-is-an-omelette-in-a-tortilla type? I think I’m the last to be honest. I kind of just shove anything I would want in and on an omelette in my taco. Plus cheese, of course. Cheese makes everything even better.

Breakfast Tacos with Avocado Pico De Gallo Salsa

That’s why although I have created a recipe that I know you’ll devour, feel free to add or subject ingredients to your choice. This is YOUR taco baby! I opted for scrambled eggs topped with asadero cheese, a Mexican cheese , stove top hash potatoes, and an avocado pico de gallo. After Mr. Jessiker Bakes’ version of pico de gallo I’m definitely the kind-of-in-love-throw-it-on-everything taco girl and I have been recreating it and putting it on everything. Next up – pineapple version! This taco is definitely bursting with all these amazing flavours that will leave you wanting to create your own taco joint.

I think I actually got inspired by that show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives aka my insanely guilty addiction and the overflow of tacos, so the next morning for breakfast (after dreams of food, of course) I was craving a taco. It was way too early to justify a regular version, so I opted for a breakfast version with my own array of ingredients. Despite my avocado and pico de gallo addiction, I actually think my favourite part was the potatoes. They’re cooked like hash browns minus the shredding and ton of oil, and create such a delicious crunch and contrast to the scrambled eggs. Can you say, ultimate breakfast?

What ingredients would you add to this? And P.S. it’s time to fine tune your taco skills – Cinco de Mayo is around the corner.

These Mexican Breakfast Tacos are a hearty breakfast packed with hash potatoes, scrambled eggs and avocado pico de gallo salsa with lime squeezed over the top.
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 6-inch tortillas (soft tacos)
Pico de Gallo Salsa
  • ½ a small onion, diced
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1 whole chili pepper, diced
  • 3 small limes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ avocado, diced
Hash Potatoes
  • 3 teaspoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 small or ½ medium potato, diced
Scrambled Eggs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons of parsley or green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of asadero cheese or other Mexican Cheese
  • 2 teaspoons of hot sauce
Instructions
Tacos
  1. In a pan over medium high heat, place the tacos to get a slight crisp and to aerate them for about 30 seconds on each side. This creates a lighter finish. Set aside.
Pico de Gallo
  1. Mix all of the ingredients except the lime, combining until mixed together. Squeeze the limes over the mixture - you want to pico de gallo to soak in the lime juice, so ensure the entire mixture is covered slightly with the juice. Allow to soak for about 15 minutes to ensure all the flavours are extracted - this can be done from before starting the other steps. Note, this makes more than you need. Place leftovers in the fridge covered with plastic wrap.
Hash Potatoes
  1. Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat. Toss potato in pepper, and then place into pan when oil is hot. Oil should sizzle.
  2. Cook potatoes until cooked through, at least 5 minutes and up to 10 minutes. Potato will be soft on the inside when cooked through. In the last few minutes, you can begin to cook scrambled eggs. Remove from heat when finished.
Scrambled Eggs
  1. Whisk the eggs, salt, ground black pepper,hot sauce and milk together in a bowl.
  2. In a pan over high heat, spray with non-stick cooking spray. When hot, pour the egg mixture into the middle of the pan.
  3. Stir slowly with a rubber or silicone spatula, pushing eggs from the edges in a circular motion. Stir in a slow pushing method until curds begin to form, then begin to fold the curds over.
  4. Lower heat, and stir until there is no more liquid egg. Remove pan from heat. Add the cheese on top.
  5. Sprinkle with parsley or green onions.
Putting it Together
  1. Lay tortilla on a place, then add the scrambled eggs with cheese on top in the middle of the tortilla. Add the potatoes and then the salsa. Split evenly between the two tacos. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over the tacos.
Notes
This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for a family brunch option.

Be careful of over adding salt = that's why I didn't add any to the hash potatoes or pico de gallo because the amount in the scrambled eggs and natural cheese is enough. Add to taste.

    I secretly love watching Diners, Drive In and Dives, aka Triple D as Guy would say. I even watch it at the gym sometimes! I’ll be on the elliptical while watching him take a huge bite of a yummy burrito. Works for me!

    These breakfast tacos look SO good!

  2. says

    I love breakfast tacos!! And that pico de gallo salsa??? I’ll take a huge bowl of that please! My husband likes meat in his breakfast tacos while I personally don’t … but they definitely are easy to customize!

    They look so yummy!

    In Texas, where I am from breakfast tacos are a big deal. You can hardly go to any restaurant and not find them, they aren’t made too healthy, so I like to make my own. I love all kinds of ingredients inside. My husband loves this one with eggs, potatoes, beans, bacon, and cheese….it’s huge! These look delicious!! Now, I want a taco :D

  5. says

    Potatoes in a taco…I’m sold! Love the customization here. So many options! I saw your and Natalie’s comments above – add me to the crowd watching Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives at the gym, too. What great motivation on the elliptical!

  6. says

    Mmm … Jessica, great idea! To be honest, I love your choice of ingredients! Here in Greece at a takeaway near where I work, there is a sandwich made with pitta bread and stuffed with omelette and salad that really reminds me of this. It doesn’t have pico de gallo salsa on it though of course. That sounds incredible!

    • Jessica says

      That sounds incredible! I still really want to go to Greece – that’s an upcoming trip for sure! Thanks Helen!

  7. says

    Bahhhaaha! I was watching that show on the elliptical on Monday at the gym. Powering through as I thought of the food. The best motivation ever for food lovers. I love these tacos. I think every day should start with them :)

  8. says

    These breakfast tacos look so good Jessica! I’d be one happy camper if I woke up to these – especially with the avocado pico de gallo!

  9. says

    Jessica, these look terrific! I have never made breakfast tacos, and I really need to change that. It would be a wonderful change of pace from my boring oatmeal.
