Breakfast tacos

imageSick of breakfast? Same old eat-healthy-yogurt-muesli-in-a-rut a.m. meal?

Try breakfast tacos! Sure, they won’t be the same as Mexico or San Antonio, but they’ll be in your home this a.m. and not a plane ride away.

For one healthy-size appetite.  Double, or triple as needed.

Ingredients:

½ onion, large dice

½ red pepper, large dice

2 hot peppers, small dice

 

2 eggs

 

Sour cream

Salsa

Grated cheese – queso fresca, Monterey jack, or cheddar

 

Corn tortillas

 

First: Procure your best tortillas. Note bene: these will most likely not be in your supermarket. Mexican grocery in your town? Fancy food shop (Guido’s in western Mass) or coop.

 

  1. Dice your peppers and onions and sauté. Remove to plate.
  2. Prepare cheese; get sour cream and salsa ready with a spoon in each.
  3. Heat pan and add bit of oil. Warm up tortillas in pan, turning up to three at a time, moving into interior, turning over, etc. Put on plate or baking tray.  Throw into preheated oven (lowest settting, around 170 degrees), cover with towel, and turn off oven.
  4. Cook scrambled eggs, then add in peppers, etc when almost cooked. Cook some more and remove to plate.
  5. Assemble your tacos:

Spread out tortillas flat on plate. Scoop on egg potion. Scatter on grated cheese. Dump on some salsa, then some sour cream. (If watching calories/fat intake, feel free to thin sour cream with water, a la Mexicanos). Eat. Yum.
