so in honour of taco tuesday and the most important meal of the day, i present to you, ready-to-go breakfast tacos.
these are sure to be your perfect breakfast go-to while sitting around the campfire this summer. at least for me they will be.
ready-to-go breakfast tacosingredients:
6 cooked pork sausage links, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 can (14 ounce) black beans, drained & rinsed
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup salsa
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
6 large eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
12 taco-sized (8-inch) flour tortillas
make ahead: spray 6 double sheets of heavy-duty foil with nonstick cooking spray.
in a large bowl, combine sausages, jalapenos, red peppers, onion, beans, corn, salsa, oil, salt, coriander and pepper.
divided sausage mixture evenly among prepared foil sheets. fold foil into tent-style packets and seal edges tightly. refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
at the campsite: prepare campfire coals. place packets on hot coals and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, moving packets occasionally, until sausage mixture is very hot.
transfer packets to a flat surface and open with caution, allowing steam to escape. crack 1 egg into the centre of each packet. season to taste with salt and pepper.
reseal packet, return to coals and cook for 4 to 6 minutes or until eggs are done to your liking. sprinkle with cheese and serve each packet with 2 tortillas.
