You’ll be making this healthy breakfast tacos recipe again and again! They are so EASY and ready in less than 30 minutes! Perfect for brunch or a weeknight dinner.
Tacos in Southern California are kind of a way of life. We love our street tacos, we love our hipster tacos, we love tacos with strange (aka brain, stomach, etc.) meats and we love tacos at anytime of the day – breakfast included!
This recipe for breakfast recipe is full of good stuff. I’m talking black beans, scrambled eggs, caramelized onions, fresh avocado slices, and, CHIPOTLE SOUR CREAM! It’s pretty much the breakfast dreams are made of and definitely the best breakfast tacos recipe around. And if you like eggs throughout the day (who doesn’t?), they would make a killer lunch or easy weeknight dinner.
While I love all of the components of these tacos, it’s the chipotle sour cream that I want to put on anything and everything. It takes two-minutes to make so don’t even think about leaving it off!
How to Make Breakfast Tacos Recipe:
Homemade breakfast tacos are so easy.
First step is to caramelize the onions. This adds major flavor to the breakfast tacos recipe. Normally it takes closer to 20-30 minutes to fully caramelize onions, but these still get great flavor from a shorter cooking time.
Then we scramble the eggs. 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. 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!
Lastly, it’s heating and compiling. You can heat the beans in the microwave or stove. As for the corn tortillas, if you have a gas stove, I highly recommend heating them up over a burner. Be careful as they burn quickly. You really need to watch them!
Just don’t forget the chipotle sour cream, see more about that below.
I told you! This breakfast tacos recipe is easy, easy.
Chipotle Sour Cream Ingredients:
Are you ready for this one? Chipotle sour cream is made of canned chipotles in adobo and sour cream.
That’s it! Canned chipotles in adobo are packed with so much amazing, smoky flavor, and every time I use them, I wonder why I don’t use them more often. As I mentioned above, don’t even think about leaving this off.
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
