This vegetarian breakfast tacos recipe is made with simple ingredients:
- Onion – I prefer white onions, but yellow or red can also work.
- Butter – Use high quality butter for best flavor.
- Sour cream – Use whatever type of sour cream you prefer. You can also use plain Greek yogurt.
- Chipotle peppers – Look for canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. They are sometimes found in the Hispanic section of grocery stores.
- Eggs – Use high quality eggs for best flavor.
- Salt and pepper
- Tortillas – You can use corn or flour tortillas. I prefer corn here for classic flavor, but you can’t go wrong with flour either.
- Black bean – Use canned black beans or serve them with the best refried black beans.
- Toppings – See a whole list below, and if you want to go basic, don’t skip the cilantro and avocado.
How to Make Breakfast Egg Taco
Homemade breakfast tacos are so easy to make:
- Caramelize the onions. Heat butter in a medium saute pan and caramelize and lightly browned.
- Mix chipotle sour cream. In a small bowl, stir together finely chopped chipotle peppers and stir together with sour cream.
TIP: Add more or less of the sauce, depending on how spicy you want it. More sauce, more spice.
- Scramble eggs. Melt some butter into the pan and then slowly stir the eggs, almost continuously, until they have just set. They will melt in your mouth!
TIP: If you really want creamy eggs, try out this recipe for Anthony Bourdain scrambled eggs – just leave out the bacon and chives. Otherwise, I prefer the low and slow method.
- Heat components. Heat black beans (in microwave or saute pan) and heat tortillas as desired.
TIP: If you are using corn tortillas and you have a gas stove, I highly recommend heating them directly up over a burner. Be careful as they burn quickly. You really need to watch them!
More Toppings for Breakfast Tacos:
I don’t think the breakfast tacos need much more than avocado and cilantro, but mexican egg breakfast recipes can be dressed up or down with toppings. That’s the beauty! So if you want to add a bit more, try some fresh tomatoes or salsa.
- Diced avocado
- Chopped cilantro
- Sliced grape tomatoes
- Pickled jalapeno peppers
- Favorite salsa or pico de gallo
- Chipotle fajita veggies
- Chipotle corn salsa copycat
Store components in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
How to reheat
Reheat eggs just until warmed through and heat beans and tortillas as desired .
How to Serve Breakfast Egg Tacos to the Whole Family
I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed your kids any meal, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉
Serve the healthy breakfast tacos recipe family-style letting everyone make their own taco according to their own preferences. My kids tend to go really crazy with taco toppings, and while it’s sometimes difficult to not comment on their (what I think is odd!) concoctions, I don’t say anything.
Some kids might prefer the components separate and that’s also ok.
