Fast Breakfast Tacos

Lori Eanes | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 2 people

Spicy and filling breakfast tacos have one advantage everyone loves: You can eat them quickly, with your hands.

Eggs are a natural filling, but the sweet potato–black bean combo is an eggless protein option.

(vegetarian, gluten free)


  1. Sweet potato, black bean and crema fresca: Peel a small sweet potato, and cut into 1-inch chunks. Cover, and sauté in olive oil until soft. When nearly done, measure out 2 /3 cup and return to pan (reserve remainder for another use). Add ½ cup cooked black beans to pan. Season with salt and pepper. When heated, spoon mixture into 2 hot corn tortillas. Divide ¼ cup crema fresca or feta cheese between the two tacos, and top with salsa. Makes 2.
  2. Fried egg and avocado: Fry an egg in olive oil until crispy. Add to a hot corn tortilla with red leaf lettuce and avocado slices. Season with salt, pepper and hot sauce. Makes 1.
  3. Microwaved scrambled egg and spinach: In a microwave-safe bowl, mix 2 eggs with 2 tablespoons milk and ½ cup chopped, fresh spinach. Season with salt and pepper, and microwave for 45 seconds or until cooked through. Spoon into two hot corn tortillas, and add some black beans and hot sauce. Makes 2.
