These healthy breakfast tacos with black beans are quick to make for any day of the week to get your day started or even for an epic breakfast for dinner!
And by adding black beans to this simple recipe, you’ll stay full longer until your next meal. Take a sneak peek at this deliciousness…
What Are the Healthiest Breakfast Tacos?
The healthiest breakfast tacos are made with fresh ingredients, have little added fat, and keep you full longer so you don’t have to snack until your next meal.
These breakfast tacos have protein from the eggs and black beans, fiber, and a little cheese -because really, can you even have tacos without cheese? Well, you could. I’m just saying that a little goes a long way.
Like all the taco recipes inside the Taco Tuesday Cookbook, these breakfast tacos are made with simple and fresh ingredients you probably have at home. You’ll need:
- Oil or spray: to cook the eggs, it could be olive, canola, or even butter.
- Eggs: we can’t have breakfast tacos without eggs, can we?
- Black beans: grab a can from the pantry, drain and rinse.
- Tortillas: corn or flour tortillas, your choice.
- Cotija cheese: a Mexican cheese that crumbles easily and has a tangy-nutty flavor.
- Avocado: a delicious and healthy taco topping.
- Cilantro: optional, but it makes the tacos look great and taste even better.
As always, you’ll find the ingredient amounts and detailed cooking directions in the printable recipe card at the very end of this post.
