CT LIVE!: Breakfast Tacos for Cinco de Mayo

Breakfast Tacos


  • 6 cups scrambled fresh eggs
  • 6 cups fried potatoes
  • 6 cups refried beans
  • 6 cups spicy breakfast sausage (Chorizo) or 6 cups bacon
  • 12ea 6 in corn tortilla, heated
  • 2 cups Queso Fresco, Fresh Cotija, Cheddar or Monterrey Jack
  • Salsa of your choice


Set out bowls containing the fillings, cheese, salsa and cilantro.

Each person builds their own taco by placing their favorite fillings in the center of the tortilla and topping with cheese, salsa and little cilantro.

Fold the taco and eat as it 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.

These are so delicious, I put all the different fillings out and everyone built their own breakfast taco. I put beans, hash browns, scramble eggs, chorizo and potatoes … you can feed a big family this way!
