The Lighter Side of Breakfast Tacos

PB130023Breakfast tacos are a culinary icon throughout South Texas.  Chorizo, bacon, eggs–yes, heart attack waiting to happen.  You truly can try a lighter version at home, camping, or traveling on a bus.  Capsaicin, the phytochemical found in hot peppers has shown promise for digestive health so load up on salsa! 
Breakfast Tacos–the Lighter Side of Texas

4 eggs (or 1 cup egg substitute)


2 cups frozen potatoes with onions and peppers

1/2 cup chopped ham or pancetta

Cooking Spray

4 corn tortillas

1/2 cup cheddar cheese (2% if you can find it)
Salsa of your choice
In a non-stick skillet sprayed with cooking spray heat potatoes over medium high heat for 20 minutes.  Meanwhile, grate your cheese, cut up your ham, and crack your eggs into a bowl. Add your ham to your potatoes after 10

minutes.  When your potatoes taste tender turn down to low and cover (stirring occasionally).  Heat up a skillet to heat up your corn tortillas–the fresher they are the easier the more pliable they are. Cook eggs in another skillet.  To assemble: place corn tortillas on a plate, top with eggs, pile on potatoes, a touch of cheese, and kiss it with salsa.  Enjoy!
