Did you know that corn tortillas are actually considered a whole grain? They are also low in sodium, so they make a great base for healthy breakfast tacos.

Fried potatoes, meats like bacon and sausage, and cheese can quickly add up when it comes to sodium and saturated fat. These tacos have none of that. Instead, try adding sauteed vegetables, beans, and creamy avocado to your eggs for healthy and flavorful tacos that will have you feeling good all morning long.

These breakfast tacos are gluten-free and vegetarian, and can be made dairy-free if you leave out the milk or use a milk substitute. If you have other vegetables that need to be used up, feel free to add them in with the onions and jalapeno. Top with your favorite salsa for a flavorful and delicious breakfast.

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray
  • 2 tablespoons onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno, diced
  • 1/4 cup low sodium black beans
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon skim milk
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 small avocado, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro

Preparation

  1. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat and spray with oil. Add onions and jalapeno and cook, stirring, until softened, about three minutes. Add black beans and continue cooking until heated through. Remove from skillet and wipe clean.
  2. Turn heat to low and spray skillet with oil again. Whisk together egg and milk. Pour into pan and cook, stirring, until eggs are set.

  3. In a separate pan, heat tortillas over low heat. Divide eggs and bean mixture between the tortillas. Top with avocado and cilantro. Serve.

    Ingredient Variations and Substitutions

    You can use egg whites or egg substitute in place of the egg for a lower-fat version.
