Tex Mex Breakfast Tacos

fullsizeoutput_437

In my kitchen, long weekends are meant for extended breakfasts. From the moment I wake up, I ponder about all the foods I can create: waffles, smoothie bowls, eggs, shakshuska, you name it! I’ll lie in bed for an extra half hour imagining what my plate will look like. But once I make it to the kitchen, it becomes a completely different story.

This recipe came about one morning when I wanted to make an omelette. It eventually fell apart in the pan and I was left with scrambled eggs. I have no place in my heart for scrambled eggs but I do have a large place for tacos. And so with a few tweaks here and there and a couple of ingredients later, I ended up with this toothsome concoction.

This delectable dish is the perfect for any lazy morning. For me, this favor blend screams comfort and it’s one of my favorite ones to have in the mornings. You can easily multiply this recipe by 2 or 3 in order to feed a whole crew of hungry people. Or you can make it for your own peaceful morning.
