Breakfast taco

This morning I was reminded by my wonderful Witchy Sissy to use my left over roasted tomatillo sauce with eggs. I complimented her on her cooking prowess and great suggestion, when she told me that she had just read my blog on chicken enchiladas with roasted tomatillo sauce and that I was the one who mentioned it, in the blog. LOL!

Turns out the Witch was right, it was a damn good idea and it made an awesome breakfast!

If you're looking for quick, easy, portable and delicious, please look no further. From start to finish, including the time it took for my wee cast iron pan to heat up, it took about 4 minutes. If you're using a lighter weight pan I bet you can shave at least 2.5 minutes off that time.

Breakfast Taco
makes 1 taco
1 egg
1 T roasted tomatillo green chili sauce
1 T grated cheddar cheese
1 fajita size flour tortilla
pinch of kosher salt
dab of butter

Scramble egg in your favorite skillet with a dab of butter. I use my small cast iron pan for this.

Heat your tortilla in your microwave, about 20 seconds, until warm & pliable.

Heat up 1T of your roasted tomatillo sauce

Once egg is cooked transfer it to the warmed tortilla, top with shredded cheese and tomatillo sauce. Enjoy!

Yay! I'm in favor of any and all uses for leftovers. In the old days I left a lot of food to languish in the fridge. Not any more!

Great way to use up that delicious sauce. The taco looks DELICIOUS! I can make it for breakfast tomorrow if you are still looking to get rid of more sauce :)

YES! I love Mexican salsas on eggs! A fun breakfast that's filling and healthy! I add beans too!

That sounds good! We love anything hot - like the green chili sauce.

sorry to hear about your strawberries. :-( And then, of course, there are people who have a backyard full of berries and couldn't care less! Oh well.

Yum! Great breakfast or lunch! I will have to make your enchiladas and then make this:)
