Tacos you can have for breakfast! Loaded with roasted butternut squash chunks, crunchy cabbage, spicy salsa, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and creamy guacamole to start your day of right!
Who doesn’t love tacos, they’re easy to make and delicious! So, it got me thinking, how could I transform them into a breakfast dish? Obviously, they would need at least one breakfast staple, like scrambled eggs. I didn’t want to make them with ground beef or chicken like I usually do, because it would be too much like a regular dinner taco. I definitely got some inspiration from these delicious breakfast sausage tacos, but I wanted to put my own spin on it.
This past week, I’ve been making all things pumpkin, squash, or orange….I’ve been a bit obsessed with fall inspired recipes. So, why not use my favorite roasted butternut squash bites as the “meaty” part of the taco. It’s full of Mexican seasoning’s and it really fills out the tacos.
These butternut squash chunks are sweet and spicy, the best of both worlds! The best part is the caramelized edges, I flip them halfway through roasting, so you get both sides to be caramelized!
The easiest way I’ve found to prepare a butternut squash, is to cook it whole, on a baking sheet, for 25 minutes. Skin it, remove the seeds, and cut it into chunks. While the squash chunks are cooking, cook your scrambled eggs.
You can’t have tacos without salsa, it’s a key component to kickin’ up the flavor! Make sure to pick up a few jars of Pace salsa at your local Albertson’s.
Why Albertson’s? Because they’re having a Stock Up Sale, starting today! You can get the 16 oz. Pace salsas 2/$4, from 9/30 – 10/13. That’s such a great sale! I picked up a few jars today, it’s too good a deal to pass up!
I love Pace Salsa, I get the mild for Travis, and the medium for me, I love the extra spice! Did you know that when you eat spicy foods, it revs up your metabolism? I’ll take a little heat, if I can burn a few extra calories! We put salsa on everything, from breakfast to dinner, and everything in between. Travis even put it on his spaghetti the other night, I guess I didn’t use enough seasonings!
Okay, now that you have your scrambled eggs, and the butternut squash chunks, it’s time for the fun part! Let’s build these breakfast tacos!
