Breakfast Tacos! I love tacos. I love breakfast. So I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to make tacos for breakfast! It really is so simple. And so delicious! I am not totally hooked!

Making tacos for breakfast is so easy. It is even easier if you’ve made tacos for dinner the night before and have plenty of lime chicken or thinly slice Al Pastor pork left over!

Season the chicken with half a lime juice, salt and pepper, and lime zest. While the chicken is marinating, mix the Baja cream sauce. In a bowl mix together yogurt, spice mix, sriracha and a dash of salt and pepper.

Add the red cabbage, feta, toasted corn, and cilantro into the yogurt dressing and toss. Add the juice of half a lime.

Pan fried chicken thighs in a large skillet in high heat. I love using the BALLARINI Treviso Ceramic Frying Pan because the ceramic-coated pan indicates when it has reached the optimum frying temperature. The thermopoint on the handle also has a heat indicator for energy saving cooking.

Remove the chicken from the skillet and let rest on plate. Shred chicken.

If you have extra avocados, make some guacamole. I like to use a nice squeeze of lime juice, diced red onions and lots of cilantro!
