Green Chile Breakfast Tacos

Eggs are my absolute favorite thing to eat for breakfast. I eat them at least five mornings during the week usually in the form of an omelet. When I’m not eating them for breakfast I’m snacking on them hard-boiled in the afternoon. I have to say though my favorite way to eat eggs for breakfast is in taco form. Ever since my first experience eating a breakfast taco on a trip to Austin some years ago, I’ve been obsessed. Who knew something so simple could be so amazingly delicious!

I love starting my day with eggs for so many reasons. They keep me full longer than any other breakfast food, they taste delicious and they are a great choice when you want a healthy breakfast.

The cilantro lime crema is optional, but it adds amazing flavor and reminds me of the breakfast tacos I had in Austin. It’s made using Greek yogurt so it’s perfectly healthy to top the tacos with. It can even be made a day or two in advance and there is enough to last through several rounds of these Egg, Green Chile and Cheese Breakfast Tacos. Change up your usual egg and toast breakfast routine and try making these fun and flavor packed breakfast tacos instead!
