These Mexican Breakfast Tacos are a hearty breakfast packed with hash potatoes, scrambled eggs and avocado pico de gallo salsa with lime squeezed over the top.
Breakfast Tacos are one of those meals that give you 100% creative freedom. I actually wish that in my former (or future) life, I created a breakfast taco food truck offering a sort of buffet style, where you could choose your own toppings and quantities.
It’s one of those things that by the end of it, shows the kind of person you are. Are you the I’m-going-to-stuff-everything-possible-into-this-taco person? Or are you Houston-Style-Ingredients-Only person or are you this-is-an-omelette-in-a-tortilla type? I think I’m the last to be honest. I kind of just shove anything I would want in and on an omelette in my taco. Plus cheese, of course. Cheese makes everything even better.
That’s why although I have created a recipe that I know you’ll devour, feel free to add or subject ingredients to your choice. This is YOUR taco baby! I opted for scrambled eggs topped with asadero cheese, a Mexican cheese , stove top hash potatoes, and an avocado pico de gallo. After Mr. Jessiker Bakes’ version of pico de gallo I’m definitely the kind-of-in-love-throw-it-on-everything taco girl and I have been recreating it and putting it on everything. Next up – pineapple version! This taco is definitely bursting with all these amazing flavours that will leave you wanting to create your own taco joint.
I think I actually got inspired by that show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives aka my insanely guilty addiction and the overflow of tacos, so the next morning for breakfast (after dreams of food, of course) I was craving a taco. It was way too early to justify a regular version, so I opted for a breakfast version with my own array of ingredients. Despite my avocado and pico de gallo addiction, I actually think my favourite part was the potatoes. They’re cooked like hash browns minus the shredding and ton of oil, and create such a delicious crunch and contrast to the scrambled eggs. Can you say, ultimate breakfast?
What ingredients would you add to this? And P.S. it’s time to fine tune your taco skills – Cinco de Mayo is around the corner.

This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for a family brunch option.
Be careful of over adding salt = that’s why I didn’t add any to the hash potatoes or pico de gallo because the amount in the scrambled eggs and natural cheese is enough. Add to taste.
