Breakfast Soft Tacos

I love lazy Saturday mornings.  I can sit for hours sipping on coffee and reading the newspaper.  This Saturday morning instead of reading the paper, I decided to make some breakfast soft tacos.  I thought to myself, who made up the rules and said that tacos are only for lunch or dinner? My breakfast soft tacos are filled with scrambled eggs, refried beans, crispy bacon, fresh picked tomatoes and cotija cheese.  I like to drizzle hot sauce on mine for a fiery kick.   These breakfast tacos are super easy to make and can be made as a quick breakfast on a busy weekday morning.

I purchase my eggs from a family in town who has dozens of chicken roaming around in their yard.   When I put in my order, I never know what I am going to get.  Mostly I get the brown eggs but sometimes if I am lucky I get the ones that are a lovely light blue or green.  There is nothing better than farm fresh organic free range eggs…


  • 4 small flour tortillas
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices cooked bacon crumbled
  • 1 cup refried beans
  • 1/2 c. coarsely chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cotija cheese (crumbled)
  • 1 green onion sliced on the bias
  • your favorite hot sauce (optional)

Let’s begin by prepping all your ingredients.  Cook your bacon and crumble, chop your onions, heat up your beans, chop your tomatoes, crumble your cheese, and slice your onions.  Set aside.  Heat up your tortillas briefly in the microwave or in a dry frying pan.  Put on plates.  Add 1/4 cup refried beans on top of each tortilla.  Whisk together your eggs in a medium sized bowl and cook in a nonstick pan coated with cooking spray.  Divide your eggs and put on top of the refried beans.  Add your bacon, tomatoes, green onion and sprinkle on the cotija cheese.  Drizzle with hot sauce if you like.  Makes 4 tasty breakfast tacos.  Enjoy!  Tessa
