Mexican-Style Breakfast Tacos with Spiralized Sweet Potatoes

There are two things you should know about me:

I love breakfast. I love avocado.

Like, if you put avocado on a packing peanut, I think I could eat it. Is that weird?

If you wake up just 30 minutes earlier, you can make these, wrap them in tinfoil, bring them to work, and have your co-workers drooling over your shoulder, while you eat these healthy breakfast tacos.

I don’t know why it JUST dawned on me to make tacos and wrap them in tinfoil and save them for later, but I figured it out recently (even though I order tacos all the time on Seamless and they come wrapped in tinfoil – DOH!), but now, I’m hooked.

I made some tacos from Molly Yeh’s new cookbook, Molly On The Range (recipe coming next week!), and had leftover tortillas, so I decided to make breakfast tacos. Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day, but I never take the time to assemble breakfast like this.

Usually, I have an acai bowl, a smoothie with almond butter, or avocado on toast – all take less than 10 minutes to make. Although these tacos take 30 minutes, the reward is totally worth it.

If you’re carb- conscious, serve these tacos in a bowl or as lettuce wraps. And if you prefer a little sauce on top – add salsa and ditch the pico de gallo or drizzle with a healthy ranch (like Tessemae’s.)

Happy breakfasting!

  1. Oh heck yes! These look yummy!

  2. Looks delish. 4 calories? :), I wish.
    Might be a typo.

  3. These look amazing!! I’d also sprinkle some cilantro on top (I love the stuff!), and Boyfriend would ask for some corn in the salsa, but this would be a total hit for a weekend brunch! :-)
