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.

Easy breakfast tacos

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

Marinated Tri-Tip Recipe

Marinated Tri-tip

We recently visited the newly remodeled Phoenix (43rd Ave and McDowell) Smart & Final store (that has been turned into an "Extra" store) to see all the changes they made.

This store now has more bulk foods, whole foods, gravity bins for grains, nut and healthy snacks - overall just more! They had a lot going on while we were there and it was obvious people were excited about the remodel.

We bought some ingredients to create one of our favorite BBQ recipes on an often looked over cut of meat - tri-tip. Ideally you'd let this marinade overnight for the best results but at least give it a couple of hours.
