Breakfast Taco with Avocado Salsa and Steamed Egg

If you read my blog you know that I love Mexican food and eggs (runny yolks are my favorite). I gathered a few ingredients that I had leftover from taco night recently and made myself a breakfast taco. Guess what? I LOVED IT! Seriously, I loved it so much I made one for lunch the following day too. It’s amazing how just a few ingredients make such a flavorful and delicious dish.

Combine the diced avocado, tomatoes, jalapeno, and cilantro together in a bowl. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Set aside.

Heat a small skillet that is coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Crack the egg into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Once the white of the egg is no longer transparent, add the water to the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for about 1 minute or until the yolk is clouded over. Do not overcook or the yolk will be hard.

While the egg is cooking, heat another small skillet over medium heat. Cook the corn tortilla on both sides for a minute, or until warm and pliable. Spread the avocado salsa over the warm tortilla then place the steamed egg on top. Sprinkle with cotija cheese and extra cilantro. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

    My husband makes those for me on the weekend – luckily we sleep late enough so its my breakfast and lunch because he isn’t shy with the cheese, and he pan fries the corn tortilla! Swoon, I love that man!

    Happy Friday!

    I’m thinking…..if I made these I might be able to coax my sleep-loving husband out of bed at least and hour earlier on a Saturday morning- they look FABULOUS. And I love that you made it again for lunch the next day- I’m totally the same, once I get on a kick it’s hard to want anything else! thanks for sharing.

    I think you’re channeling Big Dude AKA Larry – take great food, put an egg atop it, and call it breakfast. It’s a wonderful plan.

    I love egg yolk as well. It makes the most delicious and rich sauce all on its own. This looks delicious.
