4-Minute Breakfast Tacos

Rapid fire meals also need to be enjoyable to eat. Here’s a quick way to crank out delicious breakfast tacos in under 5 minutes, provided you’ve got a few ingredients on standby.

Meal prep: I like to buy a couple of ingredients at the beginning of every week to keep on hand for quick meals. I start with a bowl of pre-cut low-moisture Pico de Gallo (onion, tomato, jalapeno and cilantro). You can make this yourself, of course, it just saves some time. Next: avocado, limes, tortillas and cheese. These are just constants in the house.


  • 2-4 tbsp Pico de Gallo, strained (store bought or meal prep: chop 3 tomatoes, dice 1 white onion, 1 cup chopped cilantro, 1 small diced jalapeno).
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 flour tortillas
  • grated cheddar cheese
  • sliced avocado
  • Optional: sliced limes
  • Optional: hot sauce / salsa of your preference
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Warm a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add dry tortillas and flip once or twice to warm them, setting aside to a plate, add cheese.
  2. Add 2 tsp olive oil to the skillet. Add pico de gallo to oil and saute’ until onions are soft, perhaps a minute. Shift pico to one side of the pan.
  3. Break 2 eggs into pan, rapidly stirring with a spatula to break the yokes, mixing with the whites. Allow to cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes or until to your preferred temperature.
  4. Add eggs to tortillas over cheese.
  5. Add avocado slices, a dash of lime juice and any salsa of your choice.
