Eggs are one of the staple breakfasts in our home. Some days I eat them plain with toast, other days I like to mix it up and transform them a bit! The good thing about eggs is that there are endless ways to prepare them to prevent you from getting bored of the same thing. If you’re tired of the same old way you’ve been preparing eggs, these easy breakfast tacos are for you! These tacos are super easy to make but are a whole lot more exciting than plain eggs. These tacos also make for a great “breakfast for dinner” night.
There are endless ways to customize these tacos to suit you and your guests, which we will dive into later in the post!
What ingredients do you need?
You can use any of your favorite tortillas in this recipe—corn, flour, almond, or whatever you prefer! Our favorites for this recipe are a good old basic corn tortilla or Siete almond flour tortillas. Both corn and Siete almond flour tortillas are good gluten-free options. We have found the best price for Siete almond flour tortillas at Costco.
A combination of eggs + egg whites OR only eggs
This recipe has two different options to pick from:
- 2 large eggs + 1 cup of egg whites
- 4 whole eggs
Choose one of these two options. If egg whites aren’t your thing or you don’t have them on hand, no problem! Just use 4 whole eggs instead. This is one way you can customize this recipe to your liking.
For this recipe, we used traditional bacon. You can also use turkey bacon, which we love! If you want to save yourself extra time, you can purchase pre-cooked bacon and just warm it up. Our favorite way to cook bacon is in the air fryer. The bacon gets a nice, even crisp, and clean up is easy.
Red Onion & Red Bell Pepper
We love the addition of red onion and red bell pepper to these tacos. They give the tacos a nice texture and added flavor. A little tip for you—after you get home from the grocery store with veggies, try chopping them up all at once and storing them in the fridge to throw in dishes throughout the week. We do this with red onion and bell pepper so we can quickly toss them in egg scrambles throughout the week. It saves a lot of time!
Feel free to add more avocado as you please. Every egg dish is better with avocado! If you prefer guacamole on your tacos, give our favorite guacamole a try!
Any Other Toppings
This is where you can personalize the tacos and add any additional toppings you prefer. Some ideas include shredded cheese, salsa, hot sauce, green onions, cilantro, breakfast potatoes, and Trader Joes' Chile Lime Seasoning Blend. There are endless options! Throw in whatever you have on hand.
What equipment do you need?
For this recipe, you will need the following equipment:
- Knife and cutting board
- Medium frying pan
- Rubber spatula
How is it done?
Begin by preparing your bacon. If you are using precooked bacon, simply warm it up and allow it to cool before cutting it into small pieces. If you are using uncooked bacon, consider using the frying pan, oven, or air fryer method. We prefer to prepare it in the air fryer at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Start by dicing the red onion and bell pepper into small pieces. Turn the stove on medium heat and grease the pan with avocado or olive oil spray. Add the veggies and let them soften for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While the veggies are cooking, whisk the eggs (either 4 whole eggs OR 2 eggs and 1 cup egg whites) in a bowl. Add the egg mixture to the veggies and use a rubber spatula to gently fold the eggs until the eggs are cooked through completely. Remove the pan from the heat.
Warm up 4 tortillas on a frying pan or in the microwave. Dice your avocado into small pieces. Prepare the tacos by adding ¼ of the egg mixture, bacon pieces, avocado, and any other desired toppings.
Anything else to consider?
One thing we love to do to up the flavor of these breakfast tacos (besides adding delicious toppings of course), is to sprinkle Trader Joe's Chile Lime Seasoning Blend on top. If you don't have this on hand, you can also add some lime juice, chili powder, and salt to the vegetables while you are cooking them.
Is it GF/DF/VEG?
This recipe is gluten-free if you ensure the tortillas you are using are GF. I would suggest corn or Siete almond flour tortillas. This recipe is also dairy-free and vegetarian. As always, ensure that each individual ingredient you are using fits your dietary needs.
