Breakfast Taco with Avocado Salsa and Steamed Egg

Breakfast Taco with Avocado Salsa and Steamed Egg

If you read my blog you know that I love Mexican food and eggs (runny yolks are my favorite). I gathered a few ingredients that I had leftover from taco night recently and made myself a breakfast taco. Guess what? I LOVED IT! Seriously, I loved it so much I made one for lunch the following day too. It’s amazing how just a few ingredients make such a flavorful and delicious dish.

Breakfast Taco with Avocado Salsa and Steamed Egg

Combine the diced avocado, tomatoes, jalapeno, and cilantro together in a bowl. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Set aside.

Heat a small skillet that is coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Crack the egg into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Once the white of the egg is no longer transparent, add the water to the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for about 1 minute or until the yolk is clouded over. Do not overcook or the yolk will be hard.

While the egg is cooking, heat another small skillet over medium heat. Cook the corn tortilla on both sides for a minute, or until warm and pliable. Spread the avocado salsa over the warm tortilla then place the steamed egg on top. Sprinkle with cotija cheese and extra cilantro. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
