Pulled Pork Breakfast Tacos Ingredients


– Leftover BBQ pulled pork (about 1 cup)
– 4 large flour tortillas
– 4 large eggs, beaten
– 1/2 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or Monterey Jack work wonders)
– 1 medium tomato, diced
– Tangy barbecue sauce, for drizzling
– Salt and pepper, to taste

Pulled Pork Breakfast Tacos


1. Warm the tortillas: Start by warming the flour tortillas in a dry skillet over medium heat or by wrapping them in aluminum foil and placing them in a preheated oven at 350°F for about 5 minutes. This will ensure they’re pliable and ready to be filled with deliciousness.

2. Scramble the eggs: In a separate skillet, melt a little butter or heat a splash of oil over medium heat. Pour in the beaten eggs and season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to gently scramble the eggs until they’re cooked to your desired consistency. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.

3. Assemble the tacos: Take a warm tortilla and generously fill it with the leftover pulled pork. Top it off with a generous portion of scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, and diced tomatoes. Finish it all off with a drizzle of tangy barbecue sauce, adding that distinctive flavor you’ve come to love.

4. Roll it up and serve: Carefully roll the filled tortilla into a tight cylinder, and repeat the process with the remaining tortillas and fillings. Place the filled tortillas on a platter and serve them warm, allowing the flavors to meld harmoniously.

Now that you’ve perfected the art of these Pulled Pork Breakfast Tacos, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention a few variations and tips to explore:

Kick up the spice: If you’re feeling adventurous, add some diced jalapenos or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to the scrambled eggs for an extra fiery kick.
Avocado lovers unite: For an added creamy element, slice up some ripe avocado and tuck it into your taco. The velvety texture pairs perfectly with the tangy barbecue flavors.
Embrace additional toppings: Expand your culinary horizons by experimenting with toppings like sour cream, sliced green onions, or a squeeze of lime juice to brighten up each bite.
