Yum yum yum. I’ve helped make these breakfast tacos on multiple visits to Texas to visit Zach’s family, and finally tried them on my own for the first time.
These are so easy, and the best part is that all you have to do is assemble them, wrap them in foil, and keep them in a warm oven until you are ready to serve! You can choose any toppings you want (vegetarian or not) and they come out perfectly warm with delicious melted cheese.
These are perfect for a quick brunch idea or for house guests who may get up at different times throughout the morning.
The down side of making these in New England: lack of delicious, fresh tortillas. Any bakery in any grocery store in Texas has tortillas-a-plenty, but not so up here. Sometime, I will figure out how to make my own.
For these, I used yellow corn and wheat tortillas from Trader Joe’s. Not the same as the fluffy flour tortillas of Texas, but pretty tasty, if you ask me!
All you do is layer scrambled eggs in a tortilla with other tasty ingredients (in this case, chopped bacon and Monterey Jack cheese), roll up and wrap in foil, and place in a warm (250 degree) oven until you are ready to serve.
When we ate the tacos, we topped them with avocado, fresh cilantro, hot sauce, and salsa.
Other combos that are probably delicious that I will be (hopefully) trying in the near future: sauteed peppers and onions or other veggie combos, carne guisada or pulled pork, plain ol’ egg and cheese, refried beans… the possibilities are endless, and are carnivore and herbivore friendly.
Another idea- take these already assembled on a camping trip and heat them up over the fire!
