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

Personalized Fall Gift Basket

I LOVE giving gifts. Especially small, random, no special occasion gifts. Although Fall is a special occasion all on it's own. I saw these awesome to-go cups at Target and had to grab them. All the to-go cups I've seen are really boring or flat out ugly. These are super cute and at $3 something for 12 not bad at all! They inspired a little random gift giving so I thought I'd share!

I used this awesome scarf stamp set (still available) from Studio Calico. I'm not a huge stamp person (I almost always use black and grey) but I love having them around for reasons exactly like this. How CUTE did they make these cup sleeves?!

I LOVE simple projects like this because they allow me a little bit of creative time without the huge mess. I'll definitely be using these stamps some more. I hope Target puts out Winter cups that are just as cute!

Everything else in the basket (including the little plastic cauldron) is from Target as well (where else?!) The tape wrapped around the cauldron is from The Underground Studio Calico Project Life kit - I'm giving one away HERE!

Apple Picking

Apple picking

We decided to pretend it was Fall this weekend and headed up to Date Creek Ranch in Wickenburg for some apple picking. It was hot and we were sweating, but it was fun and fairly quick. Fall around here is pretty up and down in weather but we won't be cooling off for a while. 

Apple picking

Date Creek Ranch sells portions of grass fed beef so I think we're going to try them out! We've purchased a 1/4 of a cow/bull (I have no idea) before and loved having the freezer full.

I have lots of apples to bake with. I tried a new gluten free/dairy free apple pie last night. The filling was paleo but the crust just didn't meet the mark. We'll have to try again I guess ;)
