Simple Breakfast Tacos

Serves 2 to 4

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch pepper
  • 1 slice bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 scallion, sliced thin
  • 4 (6-inch) flour or corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup tomato salsa (jarred or homemade)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, salt and pepper until well combined and uniform yellow color, about 1 minute. Set aside.
  2. In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula until crispy, about 4 minutes.
  3. Stir scallion into skillet and cook until just softened, about 1 minute.
  4. Add eggs to skillet and gently stir, scraping bottom of skillet, until eggs have clumped and are still slightly wet, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn off heat and slide skillet to cool burner.
  5. Stack tortillas on a plate, cover with a damp dish towel, and heat in the microwave until warm, about 20 seconds.
  6. Divide egg mixture among warm tortillas. Serve with salsa, cheese and lime wedges.
