This is a very traditional Texas breakfast, and quick to prepare. It can be prepared in advance, and filling ingredients and tortillas heated in the microwave in the morning. When the ingredients are set out, kids on the run can quickly build a taco, and wrap it to go. The prep and cook time indicated are estimates and vary based on the fillings chosen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set out bowls containing the fillings, cheese, salsa and cilantro.
  2. Each person builds their own taco by placing the fillings of their choice in the center of the tortilla, and topping it with cheese, salsa and a little cilantro.
  3. Fold the taco and eat as is, or if you prefer, fold the filled tortilla and spread some butter on the top half of the folded tortilla and place under the broiler a few minutes to"crisp" the top a bit and melt the cheese inside.
  4. One of my favorites is scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, salsa and cilantro.
  5. Potato, egg and cheese with salsa tacos are popular in my household, too.

OOOOOH, these are so delicious. I put all the different fillings out and everyone built their own breakfast taco. I put refried beans, hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, and chorizo on mine. So yummy. A veru easy way to satisfy everyone. Thanks.

We love these! Have been making them for my son for years, it even beats the request for pancakes for breakfast. Thanks for sharing!
