HUMMUS BREAKFAST TACO

You might have been following Budget Bytes for some time and know the amazing combination of eggs and hummus. These Hummus Breakfast Tacos will introduce you to the wonders of eggs and hummus. These tacos are rich in flavor, fiber, protein, and flavor. You can also customize the toppings or use items that you already have. Below is a list of topping options.

WHAT I USED TO MAKE MY HUMMUS BREAKFAST TACOS

Today, I made tacos with plain hummus. But I’m tempted to make these tacos again using my favorite four-flavor hummus. Cigar jalapeno sounds great!

I made a simple batch of scrambled eggs. But you can always make scrambled eggs whole-fried or add other ingredients to your scrambled egg mix, such as diced green chilies.

Pickled Red Onions made the Hummus Breakfast Tacos shine. However, sliced green onion would be a good substitute.

Cotija is the traditional white crumbly cheese used to top tacos. However, I didn’t have any, so I used the feta from my stash. Feta is similar to Cotija’s texture and flavor, so this was an easy swap.

CORN OR FLOUR TORTILLAS

Although I am a corn-tortilla-only guy regarding tacos, there was something about the hummus that made me crave the soft flour tortillas. This is why I don’t believe there should be any rules regarding food. You can eat what you like. However, you wish. 😉

A BRILLIANT BREAKFAST TACO TOPPING TIP

These are just a few of the other great taco toppings:

  • Protein: Instead of hummus, try black beans, refried beans, sauteed bacon, or chorizo.
  • Cheese: Cheddar and eggs are a great combination, so this would be my next choice!
  • Vegetables: Jalapenos, green onions, diced tomatoes and sauteed bell pepper. Avocado, thinly sliced Radish, pico De Gallo.
  • Sauces: Lime Crema, hot sauce (Cholula would make an awesome), salsa and guacamole. Enchilada SauceBuffalo sauce.
