Quick Breakfast Tacos


At the beginning of each year, Eating Well comes out with a huge list of recipes that you should eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner in order to lose weight. This year, I had some extra time and decided to go on a recipe printing spree, selecting all of the ones that I wanted to try out.

I'm not really an egg person. Especially in the scrambled variety. But when I am tired of eating the same things over and over again for breakfast, I will occasionally resort to finding an egg recipe.

This one was just too simple to pass up.

    • 2 low calorie tortillas 
    • 1 tbsp. salsa
    • 2 tbsp. reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
    • 1/2 cup egg substitute 
1. Divide cheese among tortillas and microwave for 15-20 seconds each until the cheese has melted. Top with salsa.
2. Spray a small skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add the egg substitute and cook, stirring frequently for 1-2 minutes or until eggs are scrambled. Divide among the tortillas, wrap up and serve.

This is much tastier if you eat it when you first make them. I made a large batch of them and kept them refrigerated for breakfast each morning. A few seconds in the microwave and they were warmed through, but something about reheated eggs just grosses me out. However, these tacos kept me more than full right on through to lunch time.

  1. Yum! Breakfast tacos are one of my favourites! They're a great way to use up leftovers from a taco dinner. B introduced me to them a few years back while on vacation in New Mexico. There, they use green or red chiles instead of salsa, and fried potatoes are also common.
