Heat the tortillas or the tortillas cups in a preheated oven according to the package instructions. Alternatively, you can make your own tortilla cups.To make tortilla cups/bowls, place the mini tortillas or pita bread inside heat-resistant bowls or within a tortilla shell pan and heat in the oven for 15 minutes at 190ºC/375ºF, then leave them to cool. As they cool, they'll harden and crisp up.
Meanwhile, prepare the fillings by finely chopping the vegetables and then preparing the eggs.
Whisk eggs with one tablespoon of water to help make them light and fluffy. Alternatively, you can use vegan tofu scramble.
Drizzle olive oil into a heated skillet over medium heat. Then, add the chili, garlic, and onion and fry for about 2 minutes, until just beginning to soften.
Then add the eggs and fry lightly for a few minutes, whisking/stirring often.
Add the scrambled eggs to the toasted tortillas.
Top with whatever you like. I added some more avocado slices, baby tomatoes, and dill topped off with a drizzle of hot sauce.
Optional IngredientsFor more authentic Mexican breakfast tacos, you could include ingredients such as;
If you prefer 'softer'/wetter scrambled egg, then you can add a 'fat' to the eggs like coconut oil or butter to help 'emulsify' the mixture for a softer set. You can also add cheese into the eggs when adding to the pan, and that tends to help the eggs for setting too hard.
If you use a vegan tofu scramble, feel free to add a tiny pinch of black salt for more of an 'eggy' flavor.
Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices for these breakfast tacos. Taco seasoning in the eggs is an easy way to infuse more Mexican flavor into the dish.
You can prepare certain elements in advance for even quicker morning prep. You can prepare the entire tofu scramble, veg, and all, up to a week in advance, and take out a portion each morning, reheating it in the microwave or a skillet ( if wanted). Scrambled eggs can be stored for between 3-4 days, though I tend to prepare the veg the night before and keep in an airtight container then make the eggs fresh each day, as needed.
