Breakfast Taco Ingredients

Everything you need to make breakfast tacos.

Test Kitchen Notes

  • Prevent Avocado Browning: To keep mashed avocados from browning, add a small amount of lime juice directly to the avocado mixture.

    Easy Onion Handling: Soak the diced red onion in cold water for a few minutes to reduce its sharpness and bring out a milder, sweeter flavor.

    Preheat the Pan for Tortillas: Preheat your pan before warming the tortillas to ensure they heat evenly and quickly, preventing them from becoming too dry or too crispy.

    Keep Tortillas Warm: Wrap the warmed tortillas in a clean kitchen towel or place them in a tortilla warmer to keep them warm while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

    Customizable Toppings: Add your favorite hot sauce or a sprinkle of cheese for an extra kick and to customize the tacos to your taste.
