Scrambled eggs, homemade salsa verde, and cheese stuffed into a warm tortilla, these Huevos Verdes are a breakfast taco lovers dream! See how easy and fast these tacos come together right below.
What are Huevos Verdes Tacos
Huevos Verdes are delicious breakfast tacos consisting of scrambled eggs, salsa verde, and cheese stuffed in a warm tortilla. Trust me; you need these in your life. They are wonderful, easy to make and my idea of healthy comfort food!
In fact, I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love breakfast food. Especially when it comes to breakfast tacos and these Huevos Verdes never fail to impress! Maybe it’s the homemade salsa verde or creamy Cilantro Lime drizzle, but whatever it is, I’m addicted and have no plans of recovering.
How to make Salsa Verde
Salsa verde sauce is sweet, a bit tangy and highly versatile in use. It’s made from tomatillos, those little green tomatoes wrapped in a brown husk you find at the grocery store and make you wonder what purpose they serve. Well here, you’ve found it!
To make this magic sauce, you’ll need to first roast the tomatillos, cilantro, cherry tomatoes, peppers, lime, and garlic before placing into a blender and blending until smooth. While some people prefer to cook their sauce stove top, roasting brings out the full flavor of the veggies and I refuse to make it any other way.
Of course, I made sure to include the recipe in my Taco Tuesday Cookbook because these breakfast tacos, nor the Salsa Verde Chicken Tacos would be complete without it. I also invented a creamy salsa verde chicken pasta for the leftovers and it’s Out. Of. This. World.
How to make Cilantro Lime Dressing
It’s creamy, zesty and THE ultimate dressing for tacos, salads, and anything else you please. All you need it sour cream, milk, lime juice, garlic powder, and cilantro, blend until smooth and you are ready to drizzle!
Favorite Healthy Breakfast Tacos
Healthy breakfast tacos are a must for a quick and satisfying weeknight meal. Tacos like these, the Huevos Rancheros, Black Bean and Queso, or Bacon and Eggs Tacos– are so good and good for you (yes bacon is good for you). I also love how they come together super fast, we’re talking less than 10 minutes, that’s less time than it takes to drive to the nearest taco truck! I rest my case.
For the recipe for these, make sure you check in The Taco Tuesday Cookbook it has 51 other taco recipes, plus all the sauces, salsas, and drizzles a girl could want! Until then, I’ll be celebrating by way of Huevos Verdes! Adíos!
