"99% of my breakfasts are tacos people. Breakfast tacos are some of the tastiest foods on the planet. It's all about simplicity though-- you need to go in thinking of no more than 4 ingredients to add to your epic breakfast. Here's a perfect place to start."

Recipe Card


  • 8 Corn Tortillas
  • 4 ounces cubed Portuguese Sausage
  • 2 thinly sliced Habaneros
  • 6 Farm Fresh Eggs
  • 1 Lime


  • Step 1

    Start by putting your habaneros into the freezer for 30-45 minutes or until they are completely solid. Once they are solid, thinly slice them width wise-- they should be beautiful star shaped little things. Squeeze the limes over the top of them and let rest in the liquid till you're ready to garnish the tacos.

  • Step 2

    We're cooking these eggs French style. Start by whisking your eggs in a bowl till they're completely combined with no gloops. Pour them into a nonstick skillet with the butter and continuously stir them over medium heat until they come together. They should be a chunky custard. Season with salt and freshly cracked black pepper and set aside to rest.

  • Step 3

    Cube up your Portuguese sausage and drop them into a pan over medium high heat. If you move them around, they'll never develop a crust, they'll form a pool of grease and never get tasty that way. Once they're crispy on all sides, set aside.

  • Step 4

    I like to literally set my corn tortillas on an open flame until they burn slightly on one side. Scorch those bad boys.

  • Step 5

    Put your eggs on the tortilla, coat with the eggs and habaneros. So easy, so delicious. Top with cheese and other stuff if you want. It's your choice.
