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

Fall Dinner Party Prep & Easy Cleanup

I LOVE a good dinner party. Many of you know (because I brag about it often) that my husband is an amazing cook. A few years into our marriage we decided we were all happier when he did the cooking and I did the cleaning. As much as I don't like to clean, I know when to admit defeat. We've had this arrangement for about 10 years now and it's worked great! Especially when we have dinner parties. Since I do all the cleaning, I've had my eye on the Electrolux Stainless Steel Dishwasher with IQ-Touch™ Controls (EI24ID50QS). Gorgeous right?!

Having friends over for dinner is one of my favorite things to do. Fall is the perfect time to do it, especially in Phoenix because we can eat inside, outside, have a fire, or not. It's gorgeous and the perfect time to spend with friends. Here are some tips for making dinner parties a bit easier on the setup and cleanup:

  • Choose your wine/drinks ahead of time. I hate trying to choose the best drinks at the last minute. It always stresses me out. Clean wine glasses early too so you're not doing the last minute wipe down!
  • Find out about any food allergies/issues ahead of time and see if you can accommodate. If your guests want to bring their own food - let them! Since I have to eat gluten free I know that it can be intimidating for people who aren't used to it to prepare food that way so sometimes it's easier for them and me to bring my own!
  • Make sure the dishes are all clean before cooking so that after dinner (or first couple courses) are done, you have room in the dishwasher. I love that the Electrolux Stainless Steel Dishwasher with IQ-Touch™ Controls (EI24ID50QS) has a 30-minute fast wash so when I leave my (not so fun) job until the last minute I can have professionally clean dishes quickly! Yes. Please.

  • Having simple white dishes makes planning a place setting easy since they can be formal or casual and work for any season. They also work with any new or old white dishes or serving pieces so you can build up over time.
  • I love creating fun, simple tablescapes or place settings even at the last minute. If I'm planning ahead I'll have the dinner table set up before. Here are some of my favorite ways to make some place cards that you can work and set up a day or two before!
 Write names on a leaf (real or fake) with a metallic marker.

 Using small Fall symbols like pumpkins or pinecones make a great spot for simple name cards or just to decorate the setting.

  • Make sure you have plenty of ice! I'm always running last minute to get more ice.
  • If you can, sneak away between courses or after dinner for a minute to run a load of dishes. If your party runs later and you need to have another course you'll have clean dishes ready to go! Since we have an open floor plan, I don't do this often now because the dishwasher can be pretty loud (ok, VERY loud). The Electrolux Stainless Steel Dishwasher with IQ-Touch™ Controls (EI24ID50QS) has Luxury-Quiet™ sound packages as low as 47 dBA and the dishwasher features Clean Light that alerts you when the dishes are clean! Another reason it's on my list!
