I have a serious confession to share.
There was a time when I wasn’t that into breakfast.
As the breakfast-obsessed person I am today, I’m pretty embarrassed that 12-year old Michelle was indifferent to the greatest meal of the day. Somewhere along the way, I discovered that breakfast is not only incredibly amazing, it’s also fantastic any time of the day.
All right, in truth, I know exactly when I discovered breakfast as my favorite meal. I was 15. It was sophomore year of high school. For some reason, I had joined cross-country (I apparently was going through some mid-teen life crisis). After every 5am Saturday meet where we would run miles and hate life, the team would go out and get breakfast. After a morning of running hills and breathing in dirt, there is nothing like the taste of eggs, pancakes, sausage, waffles, bacon, or sweet rolls. Nothing. It’s pure comfort food.
Despite the fact that I rarely participate in morning workouts anymore, I never lost the taste for breakfast. These Southwestern Breakfast Taquitos are the epitome of breakfast comfort food. Crispy baked tortillas are filled with eggs, sausage, potatoes, peppers, cheese, and salsa. Need I say more?
Apart from the flavor, the best part of these Southwestern Breakfast Taquitos is how easy these are to put together. In fact, these can be made ahead of time, frozen, and baked up whenever you’re craving something warm, hearty, and comforting. In my opinion, it does not get much better. 😉
Also, these breakfast taquitos are super versatile. Feel free to omit any of the ingredients I used. Additionally, feel free to add any ingredients you have on hand. While I used bell peppers and green chiles, you could easily add in spinach and tomatoes. Likewise, while I used sausage, you could easily make this a meat lover’s taquito special by adding in bacon and ham.
Lastly, corn tortillas would be a great addition! They are slightly smaller in diameter, so this recipe would make about 16 breakfast taquitos instead of 8 taquitos. A great gluten-free option!
See? Versatile. You can get creative as you want with these! Let your imagination go wild.
As mentioned above, making these breakfast taquitos could not be easier. Basically, you put all the ingredients in each tortilla, wrap it up, and bake it in the oven. Within 20 minutes, you have a hearty breakfast wrapped in a crispy taquito shell.
Breakfast has never tasted better, nor has breakfast ever been easier. 😉
We love these southwestern breakfast taquitos! You don’t even want to know how many times we’ve made these in the past few weeks. Although I might be slightly biased, I am confident you are going to love these breakfast taquitos! Trust me, they are SO delicious, and a huge crowd pleaser!
