This morning I was craving some sort of breakfast sandwich, burrito...something. However, I didn't have time to run to the store and so I had to make due with what was on hand, and quickly, so I could start my day. This is the result. Taking advantage of store bought tater tots and a quick way to scramble eggs, these spicy breakfast tacos are delicious and flexible.
- 4 large eggs
- 4 soft taco tortillas
- 1/2 bag store bought tater tots (approx. 20 tots)
- 4 thin slices mild cheddar cheese
- Salsa Brava (optional, Salsa Brava is a hot sauce with the consistency of ketchup)
- Spice Rub (optional)
- Cooking spray
- Add'l ingredients, as desired (bacon, sausage, etc...)
Step 1: Prep Tots and Eggs
Prepare tater tots according to package instructions. While the tots are in the oven, scramble the eggs using the microwave method below.
Microwave Scrambled Eggs
In a microwave-safe bowl sprayed with cooking spray, beat 4 large eggs. Microwave for 1 minute. Beat with fork. Microwave 1 minute. Beat again with fork. Season as desired, and microwave for 45 more seconds.
Allow the eggs to rest and move on to the next step.
Step 2: Prepare Tacos
Use the cup method from my Spicy Soft Tacos Made Easy Instructable to melt cheese onto tortillas. Repeat until all 4 soft tacos are nice and cheesy.
Step 3: Build
When the tots are done baking (which shouldn't be long after the tortillas are prepped), place 4-5 tots on top of cheesy tortillas and gently mash with a fork (at this point I like to season my tots with a nice spice rub). Top each tortilla with 1/4 of the scrambled eggs and optional hot sauce. Add any additional toppings you desire, like bacon, breakfast sausage, ham, etc...
