Can we all agree that tacos are a universal language? If you’re having a bad day, they instantly make it better. They’re the perfect food to gather around.

Tacos might have their own unofficial designated day of the week, but they’re ideal any time of the day. Because so many components of tacos can be assembled the night before, or just require a little chopping, they come together quickly and are easy to make for busy days ahead. They fuel our body, and nourish the soul with their bright and colorful toppings

Beef, it’s what’s for breakfast

Tacos at their best are a combination of beautiful ingredients. The base of these breakfast tacos start with incredible beef from Certified Piedmontese Real Nebraska Beef.

Certified Piedmontese beef is naturally leaner, yet incredibly tender. You can taste the difference in this grass-fed, grass finished beef. When you bite into Certified Piedmontese beef, you are tasting that true rich flavor. However, while the beef tastes rich, it’s naturally leaner and possesses less calories while containing more protein.

Because this beef is so special, you want to cook it to perfection. I have a guide listed in my Porcini Dusted NY Strips post for the ideal temperatures.

Building the perfect taco

These Gluten Free Breakfast Tacos get a one two punch of protein from the addition of black beans. Not only are they going to provide incredible texture and flavor, they’re going to keep your energy going.

If you top these tacos off with an egg, you have a true protein trifecta! Tacos aren’t just fun, they can also be healthy!

Let’s keep building those flavors and textures.

Oven roasted potatoes with their crispy exterior and warm fluffy interior offer up a great pairing to the juicy and melt in your mouth tender Certified Piedmontese beef. From there, the tortilla is your limit.

Have fun adding your favorite toppings. Avocado slices, the verdant pop of cilantro, a bright squeeze of lime, sassy salsa, or fresh pico de gallo are all great options.

Now that you’re ready for a morning fiesta, get the coffee brewing and let’s make some breakfast tacos!

  1. 5 stars
    Being new to this GF, and eventually DF lifestyle, I wanted to start simple. I’m no chef by any stretch of the imagination, but this was the perfect place to start. My tacos were delicious, but the only question I have is what advice would you give to better source my ingredients? My local market has a relatively small selection of high quality meats and produce.

    1. It can be challenging to find quality meats. If you don’t have a local meat market nearby (I go to Mario’s Meat Market here in FL and it’s one of my favorite places to go) you can find a lot of specialty online markets these days. I use Grass Roots Co Op (grassrootscoop.com) when I’m having a hard time finding something or don’t feel like going out. Good luck and enjoy the GF DF journey.
