Change up breakfast with these easy Breakfast Tacos made with corn tortillas filled with ground sausage, eggs, queso fresco, and fresh cilantro.
Breakfast burritos are a big hit in my house and no one has ever complained about eating them but a while ago I had some leftover fried corn tortillas from our Pineapple Pork Carnitas dinner. I was thinking about how I wanted to use them and realized they would be so yummy for breakfast so why not make breakfast tacos. There really is something special about a fried tortilla filled with meat and eggs and cheese. It makes me excited for breakfast!
I think I’ve been on a real big breakfast kick lately with the kids being back in school. I’ve made it my goal to get up early most mornings to make my kiddos breakfast. Some mornings are rougher than others with the baby sleeping crazy hours sometimes still but it’s been nice to get up and get going. Plus, it means I actually get a chance to eat something in the mornings before I’m hustling everyone out the door.
The breakfast tacos are just a nice change of pace from the usual breakfast routine. And honestly they’re a great way to use up leftovers. I sometimes end up with lots of eggs and ground sausage leftover from other dishes so this is a nice way to use those up!
