Hi friends! Today I’m sharing one of my current breakfast faves. Usually I am a big fan of protein pancakes for breakfast. Either that, or Shakeology if I’ve got somewhere to be early. But once in a while I like to mix things up and make a savory breakfast, and this is what I’m loving right now. When I was pregnant I had zero desire for anything spicy (or anything healthy, for that matter), so it’s so nice to have jalapenos and hot sauce back in my life.
Southwest Breakfast Tacos (serves 1)
2 corn tortillas
1 egg, scrambled
2 slices reduced fat turkey bacon, chopped
Handful of fresh spinach
1 jalapeno, sliced
1/2 cup of the following combo: diced onions, diced green peppers, diced tomato
1 teaspoon of olive oil
Favorite hot sauce (I like Arizona Gunslinger Red Jalapeno)
Heat pan over medium-high heat and “toast” each tortilla on a dry, hot pan for 30 seconds to a minute on each side. Place tortillas on plate, lower heat to medium, and add turkey bacon to pan. Once bacon crisps up, remove from pan and set aside. Add 1 tsp olive oil and onions and peppers. Once the onions and peppers are softened (3 minutes or so), add in egg, spinach and tomato. Once eggs are cooked, add bacon back in and combine. Divide mixture evenly between the two tortillas and add LOTS of hot sauce
Serve with a side of fresh fruit! And as always, please let me know if you try this! I’d love to hear your feedback.
For my 21 Day Fix friends, this counts as: 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 green, and 1 teaspoon. Add 1 purple if you serve with fruit like I did.
