Corn tortillas filled with fluffy, cheesy scrambled eggs and green chiles, topped with cilantro lime crema. These Egg, Green Chile and Cheese Breakfast Tacos are the perfect hearty breakfast that won’t disappoint!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, eggs are my absolute favorite thing to eat for breakfast. I eat them at least five mornings during the week usually in the form of an omelet. When I’m not eating them for breakfast I’m snacking on them hard-boiled in the afternoon. I have to say though my favorite way to eat eggs for breakfast is in taco form. Ever since my first experience eating a breakfast taco on a trip to Austin some years ago, I’ve been obsessed. Who knew something so simple could be so amazingly delicious! These Egg, Green Chile and Cheese Breakfast Tacos are a recreation of one that I had during my last visit and I can’t get enough of them!
I love starting my day with eggs for so many reasons. They keep me full longer than any other breakfast food, they taste delicious and they are a great choice when you want a healthy breakfast. Since March is National Nutrition Month what better way to celebrate than with the simple perfect little egg! I’ve recently started purchasing Eggland’s Best eggs because of their added nutritional benefits. Eggland’s Best eggs contain 10 times more Vitamin E, more than double the Omega-3, and 4 times more Vitamin D than ordinary eggs. If I’m already eating eggs I might as well get the extra benefits! I love that Eggland’s Best offers classic eggs, organic, cage free, liquid egg whites and even hard-cooked peeled eggs so there’s something for everyone.
Making these Egg, Green Chile and Cheese Breakfast Tacos couldn’t be easier. For the filling all you need are four eggs, milk, diced green chiles, shredded cheddar and/or Monterey Jack cheese, salt and pepper and a few dashes of hot sauce if you want extra spice. Everything except the cheese is whisked together then scrambled in a skillet. When the eggs have reached your desired degree of doneness remove them from the heat and stir in the cheese until it melts. The filling is loaded into the warm corn tortillas and topped with a little extra cheese and the cilantro lime crema.
The crema is optional, but it adds amazing flavor and reminds me of the breakfast tacos I had in Austin. It’s made using Greek yogurt so it’s perfectly healthy to top the tacos with. It can even be made a day or two in advance and there is enough to last through several rounds of these Egg, Green Chile and Cheese Breakfast Tacos. Change up your usual egg and toast breakfast routine and try making these fun and flavor packed breakfast tacos instead!
