Breakfast Tacos that will make your morning shine! Tater Tots in your tacos, hot sauce and a secret way to keep your tortillas from breaking. A portable and microwaveable breakfast that can be taken on the go!
If you have ever traveled to Austin, TX you know the breakfast taco is king. I’m a huge fan too. Especially when they include tater tots in them. It was also on this trip that I stumbled upon Yellowbird Hot Sauce – now I stock bottles of it. Serrano is my fav.

Do your breakfast tacos break apart when you load them up?
I take issue with tacos that fall apart. Sometimes salsa and other fillings can cause the tortillas to soften and tear – this is especially true with corn tortillas.
These portable breakfast tacos won’t fall apart when you load them with sauce or salsa and take them on the go! Plus they have tater tots.
What’s the secret?
Strengthen your taco and turn it into a portable breakfast taco using two tortillas stuck together with cheese!
It’s a quasi-quesadilla-taco.
The double taco shell makes one taco into a substantial breakfast. You can make them ahead of time and reheat them for a quick breakfast on the go.
These breakfast tacos are easy, portable and re-heatable! Tater tots and hot sauce will easily elevate them to your new breakfast addiction!
- 2 small corn or flour tortillas 4" or 6"
- 2 Tbs shredded cheese I used maple smoked white cheddar
- 1 bag tater tots baked (you'll only need 3-4 tots per taco, so I make about a dozen and make a few tacos for the week wrapped in foil)
- 1 eggs scrambled
- Yellowbird hot sauce
- salt and pepper
- a few pinches of Mexican oregano and/or chili powder
- jalapeños thinly sliced
- cilantro or parsley chopped
Cook the tater tots according to package directions.
While the tots cook, scramble the eggs. Set aside.
Heat a griddle coated with cooking spray on medium heat. Add one tortilla, sprinkle with cheese and top with the other tortilla. Toast each side until lightly browned, but not crunchy - you still want the tortillas to be pliable.
Fill your tortillas and enjoy or wrap in foil to take on the go!
