Tacos for breakfast? Count me in! Especially when they’re quick and easy breakfast tacos. So what’s in them?

Breakfast taco ingredients
The bacon, egg, and avocado trifecta is the heart of this recipe. But keep reading for additional ingredients you can add to amp up your breakfast tacos!
- Bacon: For the most delicious, savory breakfast crunch.
- Eggs: Soft, pillowy scrambled eggs are the best.
- Onion: Adds a pop of fresh flavor with every bite.
- Avocado: Creamy avocado is always welcome at the breakfast table.
- Cheese: I’m using shredded cheddar, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand.
- Herbs: Fresh cilantro is always my go-to.
- Tortilla: I love to make my cassava flour tortillas, but any kind of tortilla will work!

How To Make The Best Breakfast Tacos
- Cook the bacon. Bake your strips in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, then let them dry on a paper towel.
- Saute the green onions. Give the white parts of the green onion a quick sauté with olive oil.
- Add the eggs. Whisk the eggs and pour it into the pan. Gently stir the eggs as they cook to create the perfect pillowy texture.
- Time to assemble. Add a good spoonful or two of scrambled eggs to a tortilla. Top it off with green onion, crumbled bacon, diced avocado, cheese, cilantro, and a dash of salt and pepper.
Pro Tip: Warm tortillas are a must for any taco! Gently heat them in a pan or over a gas flame for browned edges.
Customize Your Tacos Even More
Turn this into the ultimate Tex-Mex meal with sautéed veggies and a dollop of sauce. Here’s a few ways to do it.
- Load it up with veggies: The options are endless here, but a few easy add-ins can be sautéed cabbage, diced bell pepper, garlic sautéed spinach, or sautéed kale.
- Switch up the meats. Aside from bacon, you can sauté breakfast sausage, ground chicken, chorizo, or carnitas (hint: slow cooker carnitas makes for the best leftovers!)
- Dollop some sauces: If you’re like me, a batch of salsa is essential! You can add a spoonful of pico de gallo for a chunky texture, or blended red salsa for a smooth finish.
- Switch up the cheese. Shredded cheese never fails, but crumbled cheese is just as delicious. You can use crumbled goat cheese, feta cheese, or my personal favorite, cotija cheese.
An Easy Breakfast Meal Prep
While these tacos are pretty easy to whip up, it doesn’t hurt to do a little prep work. It’ll make taco-making a lot faster the next morning – and who doesn’t love to save time? Here’s what to do:
- The night before: Pop the bacon in the oven, cooking it until crispy. And while that’s baking, dice up the green onion. Then, crumble the bacon and store both items in separate airtight containers.
- Come morning: all you need to do is scramble the eggs, dice up avocados, and assemble!
