This recipe really is fairly simple. Fry some bacon, cook some eggs, throw in a corn tortilla with some cheese and spinach, and fry. What’s awesome about these breakfast tacos is how the corn tortilla gets nice and crispy on the outside…like a proper taco. I’m all for breakfast burritos, but sometimes you want something with a bit more texture and crunch.

Easy, healthy, tasty, portable breakfast. All in one crunch shell. Epic. This recipe is pretty basic as far as filling goes. You can always jazz it up, add more veggies, use egg whites instead of eggs, top with fresh salsa or our guacamole recipe. Just remember to not over fill the tortilla. A little filling goes a long way.

Homemade Bacon Breakfast Tacos Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4

Ingredients:
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 2 strips of thick cut bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 2 oz cheese
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • pinch of salt
Instructions:
Chop your bacon into small bites and cook over medium heat in a skillet until just crispy. When done, take and drain on a paper towel. Drain bacon fat from the pan, leaving just enough to coat the bottom. Whisk eggs together with cayenne, black pepper and salt. Pour into skillet over medium and make a large omelette. The eggs should be spread thin enough that you don't have to flip them. While your eggs cook, chop your spinach into thin strips like shredded lettuce. Heat your tortillas according to the package, until soft and flexible. Remove your egg omelette from the pan and slice into 4 pieces. Assemble your tacos by placing a little cheese on each side of the tortilla, then fill with spinach, bacon and egg. Pour olive oil into the skillet over medium high and place each taco in the pan. Cook for about 4-5 minutes until crispy and brown. Then flip and cook for 3-4 minutes on the second side. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for the next morning!
