LOADED BREAKFAST TACOS

As a born and bred Texas girl, there’s really nothing else I love more in the morning than breakfast tacos. Warm flour tortillas filled with scrambled eggs, probably bacon or sausage (and hopefully potatoes) and tons of cheese….topped with salsa, jalapeños, onions, whatever you want to pile on.

I mean, does it really bet any better than that? You really can’t beat breakfast tacos. They are such an easy setup to put out on busy weekday mornings… let everyone toss in their favorite toppings and wrap one up to go. Plus they make for a fun, festive, and insta-gram worthy brunch spread, where everyone can build their own perfect dish.

I’m all about the classics — eggs, cheese, sausage and some salsa is really all this girl needs. But your options are endless.

Some other variations to try? Go vegetarian with retried beans, cheese and potatoes. Get a little spicy and swap in ground chorizo sausage (my favorite!)… or jazz up your scrambled eggs with spinach and tomatoes or green chilis.

Whatever you do, just don’t forget to warm your tortillas, and DON’T FORGET THE CHEESE.

STEP 1: COOK UP YOUR SAUSAGE, BACON OR ANY OTHER BREAKFAST MEAT OF CHOICE
STEP 3: WARM UP TORTILLAS AND DISH OUT ALL THE TOPPINGS
STEP 2: WHIP YOUR EGGS WITH SOME HALF & HALF (& SALT!!) AND COOK THEM IN THE PAN WITH THE GREASE
STEP 4: GO AHEAD AND ENTER INTO BREAKFAST TACO HEAVEN
