Breakfast Tacos

by Sarah on March 10, 2014

We eat a lot of tacos around here.  Taco Tuesday, Taco Thursday, Taco Sunday, Taco Anyday.  Tortillas are always a good thing to have around the house–you can put anything in them and call it a meal.

I used to rent a house in Midtown Sacramento that had a humongous back yard–making it very easy to have a humongous vegetable garden and still have lots of room for kiddies to run and play.  That garden was the foundation of many a taco or quesadilla.  What’s growing?  Ok, pick it and add beans or cheese and you’ve got yourself a taco.

I was thinking along these same lines one weekend morning (ha ha, let’s be honest, it was more like noon)–find what’s available in the fridge and turn it into a taco.  Except this time I added eggs.  And a roasted Hatch chile.  And some black beans.  So easy.

Take some liberties, add whatever you like!  Tacos for breakfast are a serious win.

Breakfast Tacos


  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 hatch chile
  • 3 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • handful of cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup cotija cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • oil, salt, pepper


  • Roast hatch chile over a gas flame or under a broiler until blackened. Let cool, peel the charred skin and chop, discarding the seeds and skin. Set aside.
  • In a medium saute pan, add a bit of oil and brown the tortillas, folding them in half so they stay in 'taco form'.
  • In another medium saute pan, heat a bit of oil and saute the onion until softened. Add mushrooms and saute until cooked through. Add black beans, tomato, chile and cilantro and toss until warmed. Remove veggies to a plate. Add eggs and cook over low heat until softly scrambled. Season with salt and pepper. Fold in the cooked veggies.
  • Add a quarter of the filling to each tortilla, garnishing with avocado and cotija cheese.
  • Serve with salsa and/or hot sauce if desired.
