The foundation of any taco is choosing a great tortilla, whether you’re making them from scratch at home, supporting a local supermercado, or choosing your favorite specialty store-bought tortillas such as grain-free varieties. I’m partial to corn tortillas, but you can choose whatever fits your preference for this recipe.

Ultimate Breakfast Taco Ingredients

Let’s break down the core ingredients needed to make a delicious and nutritionally balanced breakfast taco using the Foundational Five.

For protein, I enjoy scrambled eggs the most. However, you can get creative and choose fish, chicken, tofu, tempeh, or any other quality protein you like.

For fat, avocados are great to use, you may also enjoy ingredients like cheese or sour cream.

For non-starchy carbohydrates (fiber), I enjoy using cilantro microgreens, pickled red onion, lettuce, tomato, jalapeno, sauteed bell peppers, and sliced radish. Have fun with the vegetables you choose to top your tacos with knowing each of them will contribute to boosting the fiber of this meal, which is important for all meals!

For starchy carbohydrates, the tortilla type you choose will provide carbohydrates, additionally, I enjoy and recommend refried or pinto beans for an added fiber boost. 

For the Flavor Factor, try fresh lime juice, salsa, and hot sauce. 

I hesitate to call this a “recipe” because it’s a simple template for building your taco following these guidelines.
