Easy breakfast tacos - gluten free

I've been promising this recipe so it's about time I'm posting this! These breakfast tacos are a staple in our house and a repeat request of our guests, especially around the holidays. Whether you're looking for unique holiday party recipes or just another easy breakfast recipe to add to your collection - this is one you'll want to try! The best part is you can adjust the flavors to you/your family's preferences depending on which Tabasco flavor you choose to use - Original Red, Jalepeño Pepper or Chipotle.

These tacos are perfect for a breakfast or brunch during the holidays because even one recipe feeds a good amount of people, it's easy to prepare, easily adjusted and SO good.

It's also easy for me to grab all the ingredients I need because I know what they are and they aren't all over the store (grocery shopping is not my favorite). We have a Fry's Food right across the street which is perfect for last minute food planning. I wanted to add some Tabasco variety to my table so I grabbed a few new bottles last time I was in - that way I have plenty on hand for more delicious party food.

Ingredients:

  • 9 Eggs (beaten)
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1/2 - 1 jalepeño pepper
  • 1 small - medium tomato
  • handful of cilantro
  • Tabasco Green Jalepeño Pepper sauce
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oil or fat of choice for browning (we use bacon fat)
  • corn tortillas

For toppings - avocado, shredded cheese, cilantro, Tabasco sauces of choice.

Directions:

To make it easier, chop the onion, peppers, tomato and cilantro ahead of time. You can even do this the night before and store in the fridge if you want to save some time in the morning.  If you're not used to using jalepeño peppers and are worried about them being too spicy - don't worry! If you're not a big spice person just make sure to remove all the seeds and membranes before chopping this removes almost all of the heat but still allows for the flavor!

First you'll want to brown the sausage until no longer pink and remove it from the pan. Then with the heat at medium-medium/high, add some bacon fat (or olive oil) to the pan. Once heated add the onions and peppers to the pan.

Stir frequently until onions start to soften (a few minutes). Next, add the sausage back into the pan.

I really recommend using par-cooked corn tortillas, they are SO flavorful. Either way heat up your choice of tortilla.

You can serve and build at the table or fill all the tortillas before serving. This recipe makes 15-20 tacos depending on how full you fill them. Don't forget to leave room for toppings!

Serve with salsa, shredded cheese, avocado, fresh cilantro (I really miss this if we don't have it!) and Tabasco sauces. I like having a variety!

Try to eat just one ;) Feel free to use whatever veggies you have on hand. We love using nopales (prickly pear cactus) in ours when we have it! Bacon, steak or chorizo is great as well. Leftovers reheat on the oven very nicely if you do end up with some leftover! Easy breakfast tacos - gluten free

What is Scrapbooking?

What is a scrapbook to you?

I got a comment on a post recently that prompted me to think about the art of scrapbooking. 

scrap·book
noun
1. : a book with blank pages to which you attach photographs, letters, newspaper stories, etc., that help you remember a person or time.
verb
1. create scrapbooks as a hobby.

It's a book for photos, drawings or clippings. How, why or what you put in it is totally up to you. It's such a personal preference. It can be a mini album, a big traditional album, a Project Life album, a notebook from Target. It can have lots of words or no words, painting, stickers, paper...

For some it's a strict preservation of memories and for others it's simply an artistic outlet with no other purpose than to let off a little steam with paint + ink. 

It can be trendy or traditional, colorful or monochromatic, thick or thin, digital or heaped with paper. A toddler can make one or a great great great grandmother can make one. There are no rules. 

Some of us choose to share our personal scrapbooks online for artistic inspiration. What we share is OUR take on scrapbooking. You might love it, you might hate it and that's ok because a scrapbook as a definition is a book of blank pages. What you put in it is up to you. You may not even like scrapbooks and that's ok too!

Here are some of the things I've been working on lately - Studio Calico sneaks

Gift Wrapping with Craft Supplies

Gift wrapping with craft supplies

I LOVE wrapping presents, but I rarely have time to devote to doing it the way I want during the holidays. I've been throwing anything I thought would make good wrapping supplies in a drawer after I use up my Studio Calico kits and things I find in the dollar sections at Target and Michaels.

If you like having a cohesive look try sticking to a specific set of colors. I stay with neutrals and use them all year for birthdays and other gifts!

If you don't use them up things like labels, string, doilies, veneer, clothespins and tags are great to keep on hand to spruce up a package without the traditional bow.

Anything with an initial on it is perfect for this! This tag can double as an ornament later too.

If you're giving a gift card at the last minute, throw it in a bag and dress it up a bit! Quick and easy.

I keep seeing little packages you can buy this year (in the gift wrapping section) with little clothespins that have veneer shapes on them. I have all of that on hand so I made up a set with just a bit of glue!

Cigar boxes are a perfect way to present a man's gift and you don't even have to wrap it!

Geometric Advent Calendar

We went black + white + geometric with this year's advent calendar.

Geometric Advent Calendar

I love our advent calendar tradition and this one fits right in with our other home decor so I don't mind having it up earlier. The boys have been changing the configuration up each day.

I stamped numbers on the back so we knew which day we were opening.

I wrote about how I put it together on All for the Boys. I love how it looks on our bookshelf in the front room!
