Huevos Fajitas Taco




My husband loves eggs and biscuits or toast for breakfast.  He always request fried eggs, but my favorite are scrambled. I love to change it up a little with scrambled eggs by adding ingredients I have leftover from previous dishes I have made.


This last weekend, in the fridge I had leftover chopped bell peppers, chopped red onions, diced tomatoes, and grated cheese.  Sounds like ingredients for fajitas--you guessed it!  We had chicken and beef fajitas the night before so why not make Huevos Fajitas Taco!


Perfectly scrambled eggs are pretty tasty, not to mention a simple breakfast food, but when they are added to another scrumptious dish they become extravagant.

The next morning at the last minute I decided to pile all the leftover ingredients in a couple tablespoon of butter in a hot iron skillet and saute them until all the ingredients are heated.  

The eggs are added to the steak mixture and  are all cooked together fajita style then pile it all into a warm flour tortilla spread with a generous amount of guacamole.  

The breakfast was absolutely scrumptious.

We are huge breakfast for dinner fans, and have it often so I think these will be added to our menu rotation.

Hope you think about leftover ingredients the next time you get ready to make a dish!  Enjoy!
