Breakfast Tacos Recipe
I’ve always been a fan of breakfast burritos. One lazy morning I was out of the sprouted wheat tortillas that I usually have on hand for burritos, and noticed that I had some organic corn tortillas in the fridge. It had never occurred to me before that I could make a breakfast taco in a corn tortilla instead. I sat there for a few seconds, eyeing the corn tortillas and thought to myself, “Would a breakfast taco even taste good”? I decided to throw caution to the wind (yes, I really know how to party), and whipped up some breakfast tacos on the fly. To my surprise, I made a damn good breakfast taco!! It’s vegetarian and non-gmo too.
This is my new favorite breakfast. I think I could eat this every day.
Vegetarian Breakfast Tacos
Extremely delicious vegetarian breakfast tacos, with non-GMO corn tortillas, sauted veggies, and grass-fed eggs. You will never eat fast food breakfast again!
1/2 Bell pepper, diced
1/2 Yellow onion, diced
2 large mushrooms, diced (I used crimini)
1 Jalapeno or chile pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, diced
Optional: shredded spinach, tomatillos, tomatoes, ect.
4 Organic grass-fed eggs
3 Tbsp. Salsa
1/4 C. Shredded raw cheddar cheese
2 Tsp. Chili powder
Sea salt, pepper, and hot sauce to taste
Heat a skillet on high heat with 1 Tbs. of coconut oil. Add the veggie hash to the skillet and saute until they are cooked how you like them. Stir in about 2 teaspoons of chili powder and transfer the veggies to a plate.
Turn the skillet down to medium heat and allow to cool for a couple minutes. Adding more coconut oil to the skillet if necessary, begin to scramble the eggs. After the eggs are soft scrambled, mix in the cooked veggie hash. Finish cooking the eggs.
Stir in salsa. Add salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste.
Heat each corn tortilla in a small skillet with a drop of coconut oil, turning until hot.
Fill corn tortillas with egg & veggie mixture and top with shredded cheese.
We often add hot sauce, because we like it hot! I also think mashed avocado may be in order here!
* It is very important to buy "organic" corn products because the majority of non-organic corn is genetically modified (GMO). I personally love the sprouted corn tortillas from "Food for Life", however celiacs beware that they contain a small amount of gluten in the water they are prepared with.
I use extra-virgin coconut oil to saute my veggies because it has a high heat point. It does not have a strong flavor and has many nutritional benefits.
Sometimes I will switch up the veggies. For instance, raw spinach is good in these.
Use all organic ingredients when available to you.
