Quick, Easy, and Tasty Pork Breakfast Taco

Want something different for breakfast? Try our pork breakfast taco. We sometimes recommend breakfast taco when as an alternative to the traditional grits, eggs, pan cake, and bacon breakfast. I was first introduced to the breakfast taco when I lived in San Antonio Texas a few years ago. 

Since Texas has a large Hispanic population there are a variety of tacos and breakfast burritos being served on a daily basis.  

Any given morning I could buy a bean and cheese tacos; bacon and egg tacos; egg and cheese tacos; and potato and egg tacos just to name a few.  

After spending so much money on breakfast, I decide to ask a friend how to prepare homemade breakfast tacos at home using the following quick and easy recipe.
