Green Chile Bacon Breakfast Tacos

Why do Tuesday nights have a monopoly on tacos? Twin Cities food blogger greens & chocolate wants to bring this dinner staple to new days of the week — and new meals of the day — and we think you should follow suit. These breakfast tacos are hearty, lightly spicy and a whole lot delicious.

When it comes to breakfast, I eat eggs almost every morning. Years ago, I didn’t go a day without my overnight oats, but these days it’s eggs I crave every day. We’ve had our share of breakfast burritos in our house, but after a trip to Austin, Texas a few years ago, we started making breakfast tacos instead. Breakfast tacos are a great way to switch things up and they don’t require tortilla-rolling! These Green Chile Bacon Breakfast Tacos are our family’s new favorite!

These breakfast tacos are simple enough for a weekday because they come together quite quickly. They’re filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, avocado and tomatoes, but the homemade green chile sauce takes them to a whole new level.

If you find yourself with leftover green chile sauce (we did!), don’t get rid of it. Instead, save it for nachos or burritos, or drizzle it on your beef tacos on taco night. Because you can never have too many tacos!
