This Breakfast Taco ain’t no Taco Bell Breakfast. It’s way better! These Breakfast Tacos with Potatoes, Eggs, and Cheese are the real deal, like the ones you find in Austin, Texas! Potato Tacos for breakfast! What could be better!
These Breakfast Tacos with Potatoes, Eggs, and Cheese are made with freshly scrambled eggs, my Breakfast Potatoes, Mexican Style Shredded Cheese, and of course, flour tortillas.
I like to top mine with my favorite Salsa Roja (red salsa) and chopped cilantro, basil, green onions, or chives. These breakfast tacos would also be delicious topped with fresh Pico De Gallo.
Having lived in Texas all my life, breakfast tacos are part of our Texas cuisine. However, I realize that others who live in other parts of the country or other parts of the world may not be familiar with them. So I wanted to share these because they are so good!
However, what makes these breakfast tacos unique are the homemade flour tortillas that you find everywhere in Texas. You don’t get those in restaurants in other states, and there is a vast difference in the quality between homemade and store-bought tortillas.
So, unless you live in Texas or Mexico and can easily find fresh homemade tortillas, I recommend that you impress your friends and make your own flour tortillas for these breakfast tacos. Trust me; you will taste the difference.
If you like a little more heat, just chop up a jalapeno or two to add to the breakfast tacos.
Since the Breakfast Potatoes are already seasoned with taco seasoning along with sauteed onions, red and green bell peppers, or jalapenos, these add a ton of flavor to the breakfast tacos.
The beautiful thing about these Breakfast Tacos with Potatoes, Eggs, and Cheese, is that you can share them with your vegetarian friends since there is no meat.
However, these tacos are so delicious and filling that you won’t miss the meat.
If you wanted to make these breakfast gluten-free free, use gluten-free corn tortillas instead of the flour tortillas.
If you want to make these vegan breakfast tacos, then use vegan eggs instead of real eggs and vegan cheese instead of real cheese.
Of course, for my carnivore friends out there, if you like, add some breakfast sausage, chorizo, or bacon to these breakfast tacos, and it would be fantastic!
