Let’s whip up some awesome Breakfast Tacos together!

1| Start by adjusting your oven racks—one about 6 inches (15 cm) from the broiler and another a bit lower, around 12 inches (30 cm). Crank up that broiler to heat things up.

2| Grab a big baking sheet and toss your tomatoes and jalapeños with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Slide them under the broiler on the top rack. Let them roast until they’re tender and have those delicious charred bits, usually about 8-10 minutes. Once they’re done, toss them into a blender.

3| While those veggies are getting all tasty, line up your corn tortillas on another baking sheet. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of cheese on each tortilla, making sure to leave a little space in the middle.

4| In a skillet with a bit more oil, fry up your eggs until they’re almost set. Carefully transfer one egg onto each cheesy tortilla. Pop the baking sheet onto the middle rack under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes, just until the cheese is all melty and the eggs are cooked through.

5| Now, it’s time to blend up a storm! Add cilantro, lime juice, and a pinch of salt to your roasted veggies in the blender. Blend it until it’s smooth and salsa-tastic.

6| Spoon that flavorful salsa over your tacos and sprinkle on some of that crispy chopped bacon.

Voilà! Your Breakfast Tacos are ready to devour. Enjoy every bite!

  • Use dairy-free cheese for a lactose-free or vegan option.

Salsa Varieties:

  • Experiment with different salsas such as mango salsa, pineapple salsa, or roasted red pepper salsa for a fruity or smoky twist.

Some useful tips for the recipe

Here are some useful tips to make your Breakfast Tacos recipe even better:

Try my Meal Prep Steak Bites and Zoodles recipe.

1| Prep Ahead: Prepare the salsa and cook the bacon ahead of time to streamline the assembly process in the morning.

2| Warm Tortillas Properly: Heat the corn tortillas briefly on a skillet or in the oven before assembling to make them pliable and enhance their flavor.

3| Control Egg Doneness: Fry the eggs to your desired doneness—whether you prefer runny yolks or fully cooked, adjust cooking time accordingly.

4| Customize Toppings: Set up a toppings bar with options like avocado slices, sour cream, or different salsas so everyone can personalize their tacos.

5| Balance Flavors: Adjust the amount of salt in the salsa to balance the flavors of the dish, ensuring it complements the savory elements like cheese and bacon.

6| Broiler Watch: Keep an eye on the tacos under the broiler to prevent them from burning. The cheese should be melted and bubbly, and the tortillas lightly toasted.

7| Serve Fresh: Breakfast Tacos are best enjoyed immediately after assembly to maintain their texture and flavors. Serve them hot and fresh for the best experience.

8| Variation Ideas: Experiment with different combinations of cheeses, add sautéed veggies like bell peppers or onions, or try alternative proteins like sausage or ham for variety.

These tips will help you achieve delicious and satisfying Breakfast Tacos every time, tailored to your preferences and cooking style.

Some storage suggestions

To maintain the freshness and quality of your Breakfast Tacos for later enjoyment, here are some storage suggestions:

Try my Cauliflower Margherita Pizza recipe.

1| Refrigeration: Store leftover assembled tacos in an airtight container or tightly wrapped in foil or plastic wrap. Place them in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

2| Separate Components: If storing components separately, keep the cooked eggs, cheese, salsa, and tortillas in separate containers. Assemble the tacos just before serving to maintain optimal texture.

3| Freezing: While tacos are best enjoyed fresh, you can freeze some components separately. Cooked eggs and salsa can be frozen in airtight containers for up to 1-2 months. Tortillas can also be frozen in a freezer bag with layers of parchment paper in between to prevent sticking.

4| Reheating: To reheat refrigerated tacos, warm them in a microwave for about 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, heat them in a preheated oven at 350°F (175°C) for 10-15 minutes, or until warmed to your liking.

5| Fresh Additions: For a fresh touch, add toppings like fresh avocado slices, diced tomatoes, or a squeeze of lime juice just before serving to enhance flavors and textures.

By following these storage suggestions, you can enjoy your Breakfast Tacos even after the initial preparation, making them a convenient option for busy mornings or meal prepping ahead of time.
