So here goes - a yummy start to the day. First, assemble all your ingredients:
To make these yummy breakfast tacos, you need
- 1 egg
- corn tortillas
- black beans
- 1/6 large avocado
- lime juice
You will also want a splash of milk and salsa, which are not pictured. I actually left the salsa out this day since just typing the word salsa gives me heartburn at this stage of pregnancy! *Note: I fully intended to photograph each stage of making these beauties, but let's face it - I'm pregnant, and haven't eaten for 10 hours at this point. Hunger outweighed blogging interest here. Can you blame me?
First, chop the avocado and bathe it in lime juice for flavor and color-fastness. Let it sit in the juicy goodness while you do the rest. Chop the tomato and begin to heat the black beans. Whisk the egg with a splash of milk and scramble it up in a skillet. You are now ready to assemble your breakfast goodness.
Split the egg between two warmed corn tortillas and top the egg with the warm black beans (If you don't buy a seasoned recipe, you may want to season these before warming them up. Or season your egg - something - or else this will taste a lot blander than it looks!)
Now it is time to add the yummy, colorful stuff. I add the cheese first so it gets a bit melty on top of the warm food. Then top with salsa, tomato, and avocado. If you have really fresh tortillas, these work well with your hands. If your tortillas, like mine, have been in the fridge for a while already, break out a fork and get busy emptying your plate!
Now doesn't that look better than cereal? or toast?
