You know how on some mornings you get up still craving the previous night’s dinner, but you want something breakfasty (is that even a word?). That’s how I felt on this morning. We had Carne Asada leftover from dinner, and there were some hard shelled tacos in the pantry, so why not turn my craving into a breakfast taco. During my ah ha moment, I really had not planned on posting this, but it turned out so good that I had to share ( hence the lack of pictures on putting this all together). I mean, how can it not be good with the tasty morsels of beef mixed in with fluffy scrambled eggs, then smothered with cheese and all tucked into a nice, crunchy taco shell. *sigh* I’m really wishing I had another one right about now.
Here’s what I used:
*leftover Carne Asada (steak will be phenomenal in this as well), cut into small chunks.
*eggs; I used 2 eggs per taco
*1/2 TBS butter
*salt and cracked pepper to taste
*shredded cheese; I used a cheddar and Colby blend
*hard taco shells
Pre heat oven to 350°.
Place taco shells on a baking sheet and heat for about 8 to 10 minutes or until heated; set aside.
Heat a medium pan over medium heat ( I like to use a non stick one for cooking eggs); add butter.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs. When butter is melted add the eggs. When eggs start to set, gently move the eggs around with a spatula. Add carne asada, cheese and salt and pepper to taste, using the spatula gently mix all ingredients together. When eggs are set, but still soft, remove from the pan.
Place the egg mixture into the taco shells, top with more cheese if desired and serve.
This is such a great idea. I never eat breakfast but I could definitely do this for lunch!
