Crumb Scene Investigates: Breakfast Tacos

(Last Updated On: May 7, 2015)

I think everyone can agree tacos are great anytime of the day, and starting the day with cheesy spicy tacos sound like a great start to any day to me. And let’s face it you can put just about anything in a taco with some Pico de Gallo and it will be good, so use what you like in yours. You can even make a big batch and freeze them to enjoy any day of the week.  Just nuke in the microwave and head out the door. Let’s investigate.

Breakfast Tacos
1 package of ground hot breakfast sausage, cooked and drained
1 large russet potato, peeled diced
1-2 jalapeno or Serrano pepper, diced fine
6 large eggs, scrambled
1 cup pico de gallo, hot
1 cup of cheddar cheese
8-10 corn tortillas
Salt and pepper to taste

Serve with:
Hot sauce
Guacamole
Sour cream
Salsa

Procedure

Rinse and drain potatoes well then place potatoes in a medium-size microwave safe bowl with enough vegetable oil to just coat the potatoes. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and heat the potatoes for 2-3 minutes until just tender. In a saucepan place the potatoes and another small amount of oil in the pan and cook the potatoes on medium until golden brown and fully cooked. Add some of the jalapeno to the potatoes before they are done cooking (if you want spicy potatoes). Heat the tortillas and assemble your tacos. Place ground sausage, potatoes, jalapeno, scrambled eggs and cheese into each tortilla and top with cheese and your favorite pico de gallo.
