Take breakfast to the next level with these quick and easy breakfast tacos! Filled with fluffy eggs, spicy sausage, avocado, and salsa, and ready in less than 15 minutes, these scrambled egg breakfast tacos are a wonderful morning meal for one or a crowd.

When it comes to breakfast tacos the options are truly endless. Whether you enjoy a combination of eggs and sausage, eggs and bacon, eggs and black beans, or eggs on their own, there are so many ways to make tacos a healthy and hearty morning meal. I opted for a combo of scrambled eggs and chorizo sausage for this recipe; however, you could certainly do a fried egg instead and/or use any type of sausage that you like. Plus, although I’ve called these breakfast tacos you can easily enjoy them for lunch or dinner as well!
