Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast tacos are so Texas. At work, we'll get them most Fridays. Almost every place that does breakfast has them on the menu in some form or another, and every person has their favorite place to get them. There are infinite combinations of ingredients, of course, but eggs, some meat, and cheese, rolled up in a soft flour tortilla, tends to be the standard. Other ingredients may include potatoes, beans, vegetables (peppers and onions), salsa, avocado, jalapeƱo, and so on. Variations include minor details such as how the meat is incorporated (mixed into the eggs or placed on top), the type of cheese, or the size of tortilla.
Whenever we have the fresh tortillas from Central Market, we make our own breakfast tacos. Today's rendition included bacon, colby-jack cheese, black bean and corn salsa, and eggs. Fruit was served on the side.

First, cook the fillings, in this case, eggs and bacon.

Set the table with all of the ingredients.

Assemble the taco.




Roll and enjoy.

Love it! We had breakfast tacos at our house this morning, too. Only it sounds like yours were fancier. But, hey, on a lazy Sunday morning, any breakfast tacos are yummy!
