Breakfast Tacos

Breakfast Taco Sunday. That is totally already a thing, isn't it? Or maybe it is not. But it absolutely SHOULD BE. 

I treated myself this morning. Because it is important to treat yo self. Especially when you have to work later in the day. Especially when you wake up from a sugar hangover from all the s'mores (and extra marshmallows, and handfuls of kettle corn) you ate the night before. The cure: Make a cup of coffee and drink it in bed. Get up and go for a run. Just do it, you'll feel better. Morning air! It just feels good. Then pull on a fresh shirt and make yourself brunch. And make it tacos. And eat it outside because it is summer and that is just what you do.

My usual classic most favorite "I could eat this everyday" breakfast of fruit and yogurt was just not going to cut it today. All the sugar from the evening before left me wanting nothing but something savory... something with eggs, and cheese, preferably in a tortilla. We have avocados? YES. We have black beans? YES! Brunch time.

Tacos for breakfast is something that should indeed happen more often! This goes right up there on my list of best thing I have ever made. My intense love of tacos prevails <3

Breakfast Tacos with Eggs and Black Beans
Recipe inspired by Shutterbean
(This is more of a guideline than a recipe. Choose your own taco adventure)

Makes one big, overflowing taco.

  • corn tortilla
  • spoonful of black beans (I had some from a leftover dinner kickin' in the fridge, but you could used canned)
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • chopped fresh chives
  • slices of avocado
  • grated cheddar cheese
  • fresh cilantro
In a small bowl, whisk the egg with salt and pepper and some of the chives. Char the corn tortilla over the open flame of a gas stove for a short time... careful, you don't want to burn it! Keep it wrapped in a towel until ready to fill to keep it warm.
Scramble the egg mixture until just cooked.
Take your tortilla, spoon on the beans, then the egg, layer the avocado slices, sprinkle with cheese and the extra chopped chives and finish with CILANTRO! (Oh cilantro, I love you.)
Go outside and eat it on the porch and feel the pride.

To Ten AM tacos!
