it's time again for the secret recipe club! each month, when my i receive my assigned blog, i click the link, and the first thing i do is read the about page. i like to see where people are from, what their background is. how are we alike? do they live near me? what do they do for a living? the basics, really.
and then i start reading through posts to find inspiration. i start by going back as far as i can in the history. and then i look through the posts in the same month i am cooking from them. that way, i get the best of both worlds - reinvent an old recipe and cook something that fits in with the time of year.
this month, it was amber's blog, bluebonnets and brownies, that reminded me how great breakfast tacos can be. and since cilantro and tomatoes are in season now, i added some fresh pico de gallo and cilantro for a kick. i made these from some leftover roasted potatoes one saturday morning, but these could certainly fill in for a weeknight meal - or leave out the bacon for a meatless meal!
what's the secret recipe club? it's a much better version of secret santa. each month participating bloggers are assigned another participating blogger to make a recipe from. you pick the recipe, adapt it as you wish, make it, and blog it on the same day as the other participating bloggers. click to find out more information or join.
inspired by bluebonnets & brownies
45 minutes, serves 4
4 slices thick cut bacon
leftover roasted potatoes
spicy black beans
pico de gallo
3 tablespoons whole milk or half & half
small corn or flour tortillas
- cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp. remove the bacon to drain. do not discard the fat in the pan.
- cut the roast potatoes into small, bite size pieces. cook the potatoes in the reserved bacon fat over medium heat until crisp. remove from the pan and keep warm.
- wipe out the pan with a paper towel. spray with non stick spray and heat over low heat. scramble the eggs and milk together in a small bowl. season with salt & pepper and cook until soft.
- warm the tortillas in the microwave. build your taco in whatever layer you like (potato, beans, bacon, egg, avocado, cilantro, queso fresco).
