I’m completely obsessed with these breakfast tacos. Mr. Mother Thyme is too. He says they are the bomb and he’s right. What started as a typically morning earlier this week getting the kids off to school then cooking up a breakfast for Mr. Mother Thyme turned into this delicious breakfast that we have eaten almost every morning since.

It’s been a week since I started Weight Watchers and I have to admit I’m loving it. Unlike other diets I have tried I don’t feel like I’m limited to anything on Weight Watchers. I’m eating healthy, not eating after dinner which was a huge problem of mine before and I’m really enjoying what I’m cooking. Sure I have cut out the sweets and I’m limiting my carbs but even without those I don’t feel deprived. And starting my morning with breakfast such as these delicious breakfast tacos doesn’t give me the mid-morning cravings that I used to have.

So how can you make these delicious tacos in the morning if you are short in time? Here’s what I do. I love caramelized onions. I literally could eat them by the spoonful so I make a batch of caramelized onions each week and have a stash in my refrigerator to add to recipes like this. The secret to my caramelized onions is a splash of balsamic added in at the end. It adds a boatload of flavor to the onions. It really takes the flavor of caramelized onions to the next level. They are so good! No wonder why I can eat these by the spoonful. If you’re not looking to have a stash of caramelized onions in the refrigerator simply make a small amount indicated in the recipe the night before and just warm them up before making these tacos.

Another idea is to even scramble the eggs the night before as well and pop them in the microwave to warm them up. The best part of these tacos is everything can easily be made ahead of time including the mashed avocado if you’d like so you can whip up these tacos when you are ready to eat.

I absolutely love avocado and the creaminess of the mashed avocado with just a hint of lime is so good in these tacos. Sometimes it’s the simplest recipes with minimal ingredients that are the best.

Who said you can’t eat tacos for breakfast? Whether you are dieting or not, breakfast is such an important meal of the day and one of my favorites, especially when I’m enjoying these crazy good breakfast tacos. You can even customize these and add in whatever you’d like but I’m loving them just like this. Add these to your morning menu and I’m sure you’ll get hooked on these too!
